    Interview

    Interviewed at campus recruitment. I was contacted after a couple of weeks and scheduled for a onsite interview in Midland, Michigan. On the day of my interview, I first gave a 45 minutes presentation followed by one on one interviews with eight different people, each one took around 45 min. None of the questions were tricky, most of them were technical questions, not many behavioral type questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Dow Chemical (Freeport, TX) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I saw a great group of researchers led by a very personable manager. The interview process required giving a research seminar at the beginning, followed by a question/answer session, then meeting several senior scientists and managers.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in five years?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The impression was that the salary itself was formulaic, but that the sign-on bonus was negotiable. Because I needed extra time to decide (two-body problem), I did not negotiate on the salary but rather on the extra time for making a decision.

    Interview

    Good interview process. they took good care to make me comfortable. Presentation in key and most important. 1:1 was cool, if you have reasonable comm skills, you will do well. Folks in this particular dept were friendly. remember to ask lots of questions. surprisingly, no interview with any manager or HR for me. process is tiring. prepare well and like you would your thesis defense!
