    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Chemical.

    Interview

    The interview process was good. It started with a phone interview with two employees. Then they called and scheduled an onsite interview. It was less stressful than most interviews. It was more of a discussion about the position while getting a tour of the lab. They asked what I'd do in certain situations and explained what would be expected of me in this position.

    Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dow Chemical.

    Interview

    The interview was a standard interview with the usual questions and lasted approximately one hour. Even thought the interview was for a student employment position, the questions were the generic questions asked of any candidate. The experience was made better by engaging the interviewers and asking them questions. If the interviewee has a positive attitude and clearly articulates thoughtful answers to questions, they are likely to leave a positive impression.

    Recruiters visited the college that I attended. They had a presentation about Dow and then had a Q&A. I then applied and the recruiters were the ones that actually interviewed you. There are two recruiters for each college. They do not work in HR they work in the field of which you are applying.

    Interview

    Site interview was very professional and focused on job duties. All team members took turns in asking Questions.
