The process took 3 months - interviewed at Dow Chemical in November 2011.
Interview Details –
In July 2011 I applied online and had a phone interview in August. I followed up every couple of weeks on the status of my application. Then in October 2011, I was invited to come to Midland, MI for a face to face interview. The interview was behavioral based questions (S.T.A.R. model)
The interview process I have to say was negative because even though the hiring manager already knew that I held several jobs prior, I was rejected because of this. I asked myself, then why go through this interview process in the first place.
Also, one of the interviewers had never heard of the term AOP (annual operating plan).
