    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dow Chemical.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via their website. Was contacted about a week later for an interview. I interviewed with two females (ended up being my two bosses). The interview lasted about 45 minutes. Very easy questions and very laid-back style...unlike many of the other job interviews at Dow that I have had.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dow Chemical.

    Interview Details

    The interview was on campus and I applied through the career center website. I do not know if there are more steps to the process or if they offer you the job on the spot so I can not comment on what happens next. I did not get any offer to return so I have no other information

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when... These were difficult when I was a sophomore interviewing as I didn't have too much experiences to draw upon and ended up having to connect a weak example.   Answer Question
