Maintenance Engineer
New Orleans, LA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Dow Chemical in November 2011.

Interview Details – 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.
