    Productivity Improvement Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dysart, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dysart, IA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I found the listing in a local paper. I got a call for an interview about 2 weeks after posting my resume and cover letter through the website. I was surprised by the call; even though I have good experience related to the job, I do not have industry-specific knowledge. I interviewed two plant managers at the same time. Within a week, I got a call for a second interview. In the second interview, I spoke with two people from the corporate office, also together. Both interviews consisted of scripted questions that were likely part of a set pool. Aside from clarifying questions, neither interview deviated from the script. Within 24 hours of the second interview, I got a phone message requesting references, which I emailed right away. (I later found out that none of my references had been called.) Unfortunately, I never heard back from any of the interviewers, despite several messages and emails to follow up. This was disappointing because the whole process was very professional up to this point. After being told that only 2-3 people would be back for a second interview, I expected a courtesy call to let me know that the position had been filled.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were behavior-based. I was asked about a time when I witnessed something unethical at work and what my response was. I answered the question with a specific example, but I was not comfortable airing my former employer's "dirty laundry", as this type of situation is often sensitive.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Typically the company is very slow at getting back to candidates. It takes weeks sometimes to get them to call you back and they only call the top 10%. There were over 100 applicants for the position I applied for. I was asked a lot about my technical experience. I was asked a lot about problem solving skills that I had and why I wanted the position.

    Information Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The communications process to start was largely through the website. Be warned - a lot of the job positions listed are 'honey pots', not necessarily jobs that they are looking to require immediate staffing but a way of collecting resumes for future openings. (The jobs needing immediate staffing are also listed elsewhere, like Dice.)

    The tone of the interview was a bit surprising - mostly questions asking to whether or not I felt the position would be challenging enough. After discussions with the larger group my interest in that specific group quickly waned.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview with HR about 30 min.
    In the first 15 min, I was asked several questions about my resume. They were pretty easy.
    In the last 15 min, HR asked some behavioral questions. Because I thought behavioral questions rarely appeared in the phone interview, I didn't prepare very well.

    Give me an example that you have creative ideas and work with others to implete those ideas.
    Give me an exmaple that you finish a long-term project.
    Give me an example that you help customer solve problem and lead to better customer service.
