    Applied online and was contacted by recruiter for initial screening. A week later I received an email from Hiring Manager inviting me to interview at St. Louis Headquarters. Once the interview date had been agreed on, an administrative assistant coordinated all travel, hotel and transportation. The interview consisted of two panels- the first with the recruiter and hiring manager and a second with two members of the team. Afterwards, there was a written exercise based on a hypothetical situation. All behavioral questions were based on five competencies found listed in their website.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Monsanto Company.

    Interview Details

    They had an initial screening round, with HR/co-ordinator. 2 rounds followed soon after - reporting manager and his peer. Was followed by 5 on-site interviews, at which point it got tiresome and repetitive. Offer was made 3 weeks following the last interview.

    The company is an agri-business Co. Since i came from a different background, almost no questions were asked to check my knowledge. A few were asked to check my interest in the area. A lot of behavioural questions were asked. Would say 70% of all Qs started with either "give me an example where..." "have you been in a situation where..." "What would you do if...". limited difficulty level, but can get tiresome after a point, and I started to slack off a bit towards the end.

    The process itself was smooth, and people were more or less approachable.

    Interview Questions
    • What is brand You? (sounds little lame, but in context, it made sense). Wasnt most difficult, but it just sprang out on me.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiated for a slightly better offer.
