Frequently Asked Questions

Bayer successfully completed the acquisition of Monsanto in June 2018, bringing together Monsanto’s leadership in seeds and plant traits with Bayer’s leadership in chemical and biological crop protection. By joining forces, we will create even more extensive career opportunities for talent around the world. We’re a global team working to shape agriculture through breakthrough innovation that will benefit farmers, consumers, and our planet.

Where do I submit my resume?
While Monsanto is now Bayer, we will continue to hire using separate career sites until we can integrate our career platforms. Candidates may access the online job opportunity platforms of Bayer and Monsanto by visiting advancingtogether.com/careers. You will need to complete an online application to be considered for a position.
How can I unlock my account?
When the system locks your account, an email is sent to you. If you have not received the email, please check your junk mail and spam filters. If you still have not received the email, please email global.talent.acquisition@monsanto.com with “Account Locked” in the subject of your message.
 
How can I update my resume and personal information?
Log in to your profile to update your personal information. To replace your current resume, upload a resume with the same file name and extension.
 
Why can’t I upload my resume?
Your resume must be under 100 kb and one of the supported file types listed. If you continue to have problems, please ensure that your resume does not contain any java script as our system will block these files from being loaded. The system may suspect that there is a virus within the file when it contains java script. Java script may be contained within hyperlinks; therefore we also suggest removing any hyperlinks within your document. Additionally, there is a limit of 10 documents that may be uploaded.
 
Can I just send you my resume?
No. All resumes need to be attached to your online application. If you are unable to upload your resume, you will need to copy and paste it into the application.
 
Why do I receive error messages when I try to move to the next step?
Make sure that you have entered all required information. Also, be sure that you use only the navigation within the system and avoid the back/forward/refresh from your internet browser. If you are still having problems, clear your cache (cookies, internet history). If you continue to see the same error message, please document the steps you took and attach a screenshot into an email message to global.talent.acquisition@monsanto.com with “Error Help” in the subject of your message.
 
I started an application, but had to leave my computer and the application closed. What do I do?
If you were able to save your submission, log in to your profile and look for your draft application. If the position is still posted, click the View/Edit My Submission link. If this option is not available, we are no longer accepting applications for this position. If you were not able to save your submission prior to leaving your computer, then you will need to restart the application.
 
 What is the status of my application?
Because recruiters are working on numerous openings at a time, it is not possible to provide you direct contact information. When a recruiter or hiring manager would like to discuss a position with you or set up next steps, they will contact you directly. It can take weeks to months for a position to be filled and we appreciate your patience.
 
I received an email offering me a job and requesting additional information?
Unless you have received a verbal offer from the hiring manager or recruiter that you interviewed with, it is likely that the e-mail is fake. This e-mail solicitation DID NOT come from Monsanto, and was sent with neither our knowledge nor our approval. Please forward the email you received to global.talent.acquisition@monsanto.com with “Suspicious E-Mail Offer” in the subject line. Your e-mail will provide us with a timely heads-up with which to investigate this scam. If you have received any correspondence regarding this matter through the U.S. Mail – for example, a check – contact the United States Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455. Do not cash the check.
