Who we recruit
When we look for people to join our team, we look for motivated individuals who want to embrace all that Cargill has to offer.

People who recognize the freedom they are given to make an impact and evolve the company. With this freedom comes a commitment to their work, to their communities and to using innovative thinking to bring our customers "what's next" in the marketplace. Maybe that's why our employees don't just stay with us for a year or two and move on. When you look around the halls of Cargill, you see people who have worked here for 20 and 30 years. It's because Cargill is a place where ideas are heard and opportunities are endless.
