    Interview

    I participated in a structured interview with 4 different individuals. Very basic behaviorally-based type questions geared around competencies. There was an online assessment in addition to the Taleo-based application. It was set up very professionally and the interviewers were very well-prepared and seemed like they had received training on conducting interviews. I was very satisfied with the entire process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dow Chemical (Terneuzen (Netherlands)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Ik solliciteerde voor een stage plaats en kreeg een week later een email om een gesprek in te plannen.

    Het eerste gesprek was via de telefoon en het ging er goed. Geen moeilijke vragen en ze stelde me op mijn gemak.

    Voor het tweede gesprek werd ik uitgenodigd bij het bedrijf en dat ging ook erg goed. Ik kan me niet herinneren dat er vragen waren waarover ik struikelde. De vragen waren vooral bedoeld om na te gaan of ik goed kan presteren en om vast te stellen dat de omvang van het voorgestelde project goed was voor de gestelde termijn.

    Waarschuwing: Dow is een heel groot bedrijf dus mijn ervaringen kunnen anders zijn dan die van jou. Ga er niet vanuit dat het bij jou ook zo makkelijk zal gaan, ik had gewoon geluk.

    I applied for an internship position and received an email about 1 week later, to schedule an interview.
    The first interview was over the phone, and it went very well. No tough questions, and they made me feel at ease.
    For the second interview, I was invited to the company, and that went well as well. I cannot recall any questions that made me trip. The questions were mostly intended to ascertain my ability to perform well, and to make sure that the scope of the proposed project was okay for the given time frame.

    Warning: Dow is a very big company, so my experience might be different from yours. Don't assume that yours will be easy as well. I think I just got lucky.
