    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cargill (Champaign, IL (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I submitted my application through Handshake and received a call a couple of days before an on-campus career fair in which they were attending. They have reviewed my resume and sought me out for an in-person interview. After the in-person interview, it took roughly a month to hear back about receiving an offer.

    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cargill (Nashville, TN (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple and well orchestrated. What was disappointing was the lack of communication and humanity after the interview. HR is an area where those two things should never be neglected. In times like these it is important to add extra kindness in all that we do. I interviewed with the hiring manager and after finding out I did not get the job, I kindly requested any feedback the team was able to provide so that I could understand what led them to that decision and learn for future opportunities. I was given the automatic/generic response that they went with another candidate. I was really excited about the role and company, but ultimately was very disappointed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cargill.

    Interview

    The hiring manager reviewed my background and knew that I was qualified. He told me that he would push me through HR so we could speak while still following the correct procedures. HR reached out to schedule an interview and ghosted me on the interview. I later spoke with the hiring manager and he claimed that he changed his mind about the qualifications he was looking for.
