    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pioneer (Johnston, IA (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward for a big company. After the formal application process, I was first contacted for a phone interview, that was followed up by an invitation for an onsite interview with all travel expenses paid by the company. I got to meet many future colleagues and got a general look of the campus. The process was very courteous and I never felt like I was being interogated.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pioneer (Johnston, IA (US)).

    It was a very long interview (2 plus hours), so be prepared. Take the day off of work at your current job. I had several smaller group interviews. Each group repeated the same or similar series of questions and asked that I give different examples to each group.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pioneer in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in Jan and they reached out to me in April. The recruiter is very slow. She will reply when she feels like. To schedule a phone interview she took 15 days and for weeks together she did not even reply. They had phone interview and face to face. Phone interview was about 30 minutes with generic questions. Face to face was for 1.5 hours asking how I can fit in their group . After the Face to Face I had to ask in 3 different emails about the status. When they made me the offer I declined it. There is no point of contact. By the time they give me the offer letter I did not want to send another 100 emails for follow up
