Agricultural workers tend to crops and livestock in order to maintain the quality. They use physical labor and operate machinery in the execution of their duties. For instance, they inspect crops by hand, maintain the health of livestock by feeding them and cleaning their living area, and more. Agricultural workers work on outdoors and on farms, and the work can be physically demanding. They need to have good manual dexterity, physical stamina, and be good at operating machinery. Most employers don't require a high school diploma. On-the-job training is provided. The work can typically be differentiated between working with either crops or livestock.
The interview for agricultural workers will focus on key areas such as your physical ability to work in outdoors conditions and for long durations; your ability to operate the machinery that's involved with the specific role; and your ability to learn on the job. You'll be expected to plant, tend, and harvest crops. As such, you may be asked about your operating knowledge of farm machinery such as loading machines and conveyor belts, and you may be expected to know how to make minor repairs and adjustments in order to remain productive.
To prepare for an interview for agricultural workers, think of ways when you used problem-solving skills to overcome an unexpected challenge. For example, you may have had a situation in which a machine broke down and stopped productivity. What actions did you take to solve the problem and continue working? Aside from that, think of a time when you exceeded your employer's expectations without even thinking about doing it, so that you can demonstrate a strong work ethic and a commitment to quality. You can also prepare by thinking about what motivates you to work hard, and how you like to be treated by your supervisors.
