    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dow Chemical (New Orleans, LA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The first interview was 1:1 in a conference and was completely behavioral, about 1 hour long, and requires a lot of details and more than one example per scenario. The second on site interview was with a panel during a hiring event, also behavioral but shorter and less stressing.
