    I worked at Syngenta full-time

    Pros

    The work was challenging, interesting, and enjoyable. My supervisor was very supportive and offered opportunities to advance my career.

    Cons

    The only con to my working experience here was that it was located in the middle of nowhere. As I understand it a lot of their locations located far from "people"

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Syngenta (Naples, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    They extensively asked about my employment background as it specifically related to data entry and work with inventory. They were sure to say that the job was pretty repetitive with no additional tasks to be performed. They asked many questions about my past employment. Some stuff about me as a person. Overall they were kind, relaxed and organized.
