I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Dow Chemical in May 2011.

Interview Details – a phone pre-interview with HR people first. Then noticed for a one day on-site interview. Very intensive and exhausting but informative and enjoyable interview. Meet with ppl from different groups; ppl there are super nice and positive. Very impressive company. Questions are not difficult, but have to prepared ahead, e.g. what is your weakness, describe and give an example how to deal with difficult situation, what is your greatest achievement.
