The process took a dayinterviewed at Dow Corning in November 2011.


The interview process with Dow was very friendly and straightforward. It started out with an on-campus interview. They collected a bunch of resumes, and then decided who to interview. The on-campus interview was very regimented and impersonal, with the interviewer asking me a bunch of questions off her laptop, and then typing in my responses. About a month later, I got a call inviting me to an on-site interview at their headquarters in Midland. Throughout the whole process they were very friendly, arranging for transportation and being very communicative throughout the whole process. The interview itself was a research presentation followed by about 7 hour-long one-on-ones. Each person tended to ask slightly different things, but some of the questions were pretty repetitive. By the end of the day I was exhausted. They got back to me a week later, telling me that they weren't going to offer me a job, but I'm pretty sure it was because the work they were offering me wasn't exactly what I had been hoping for, and I'm pretty sure that my lack of enthusiasm for it came across during the interview. Overall, it was a pretty standard and straightforward process, if somewhat exhausting. No tricks or curveballs.
