    IT Support Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Louis Dreyfus Company.

    Interview

    The HR person I communicated with only gave a days notice for an interview. Normally they are supposed to ask what your schedule for the following week was but they requested to do the interview right away. They asked the basic HR questions about your resume, experience and previous employment. However, do not expect them to contact you back. I tried to followup with HR at least twice and no one responded. Normally, I would at least expect a rejection email if I managed to get a phone interview, but they do not send those at all.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Louis Dreyfus Company (Kansas City, KS (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It starts with a campus career fair. After that, I was called back for a brief on campus interview. Final round was at their headquarters in Kansas City. It was a very standard interview process. The first round was very conversational and was to gauge general interest from the employer and employee, to make sure that it would be a mutually beneficial experience for both parties. The 2nd round was a bit more job specific qualifications and included specifics about what the role was and what was expected.
