Research Engineer Interview

Research Engineer
Freeport, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Dow Chemical in December 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was pretty standard. I gave a research seminar in the morning and then had one on one interviews for the rest of the day. One on one interviews were exhausting, due to the fact that I was the one who would always ask questions, initiate the conversation and so on. Imaging, by the end of the day I almost run out of questions....

Reason for Declining – due to location

Research Engineer Interview

Research Engineer
Freeport, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Dow Chemical in November 2012.

Interview Details – This is an on-site interview for a PhD level research Engineer in Hydrocarbon R&D group. I got this opportunity from an employee referral. The process started with a 45-60 min long presentation on my own graduate research, followed by 6-7 1:1 interviews with the research scientists/engineers. It also included a dinner the night before, a lunch during the interview, a lab tour and an HR wrap-up. The whole process was from 8AM to 3:30PM.

Interview Question – Most of the questions are typical behavior questions that can be found on the internet. The interviewers asked a lot about my ability to work in a team-working and my research interests beyond my own field.   View Answer
