Easy Interview

Research Scientist Interview

Research Scientist
Midland, MI

The process took a day - interviewed at Dow Chemical in November 2009.

Interview Details – This was from the result of a campus interview. My research presentation went well, I thought, as did some of the interviewers. This one manager in the audience kept shaking his head disagreeably the whole time (which was very rude) and asked questions which were completely unrelated to my research. In the question session after the presentation, he announced that I had not addressed the expectations that he had. He came in with some pre-conceived notions about what I would be presenting, stuff that I had not mentioned anywhere on my resume or presentation abstract.

The rest of the 1:1 interviews were ok, most people asked canned behavioral questions. Some scientists asked good questions, others were quite lame.

Midland is square central with a total of 3 places to eat downtown.

Interview Question – What would you do if I gave you a million dollars to spend on any research project that you could?   View Answers (2)

Interview Details – I talked with a campus recruiter and then was invited for an on-site interview. I gave a 45 minute seminar in the morning and then met with ~10 people for 30 minute interviews. I met with other employees for dinner the night before my interview and also for lunch during the interview.
