    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer.

    Interview Details

    Must fill out on line application through DuPont as they own Pioneer.
    web site can be difficult to navigate. often wonder if your submissions get lost in the IT desert and never to be seen again.
    They auto sort by outside third party that will also conduct a phone interview. If you pass this and they will tell you on the phone they will then schedule you for a face to face.
    Face to face is a three person panel one from management one from HR and a Representative from production in the plant. This is a scored interview according g to how questions are answered not sure how they score as the same answer can get different scores in every interview.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in December 2009.

    Interview was casual, with the interviewer asking many thought provoking questions to make sure you can solve problems and work with other people. Some hypothetical questions were also asked, some of which didn't really make sense, but it seemed like they were basically trying to see your thought process.
