    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I passed a 30 minute screening phone interview. It was very basic and easy behavioral questions. I was then asked to come for a formal interview on site. I drove about 4 hours each way for a one hour interview and a 30 minute plant tour. The interview was a panel of three. The interviewers were nice and professional but it was not very laid back. The interview consisted of more behavioral and situational type canned questions.
