    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterloo, NE (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Syngenta Seeds in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Syngenta has the interview process very well organized. The entire process took quite a bit of time, but the company communicated well. The initial 2 interviews were on the phone and were fairly short. The on-site interviews were one hour each. There were 2 meetings with groups of interviewers. The process is difficult, but not unpleasant. I felt free to ask questions and developed a good feel for the position and the people interviewing me. An example of a situational question is describing an experience managing others. Most situation questions were directly related to the position.Work safety was stressed more than I have ever heard a company mention it before. The frequency had me worried about being reprimanded for the smallest infraction if I did get the job. I got the perception that the work environment was okay, but that most employees were putting in their time and not really excited about what they do.

    Security and Compliance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Wayne, IN (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Wayne, IN (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Syngenta Seeds in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    Initially hired through Office Team / Robert Half as contract labor. Worked for office in Fort Wayne, IN. Syngenta does not generally hire for permanent positions so this was a good way to get in the door. Since Syngenta decided to hire contract labor, the hardest part was dealing with Office Team. Office Team personnel are challenging to work with, unsupportive, and could not seem to properly address tax issues year after year.

    Interview Questions
    • Company really wanted someone that had previous SAP experience but were willing to train someone that could quickly learn that system.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary negotiation was minimal at best. Five years ago was a difficult time to negotiate wages considering that I was unemployed and economic times were tough.
