Senior Research Chemist Interview

Senior Research Chemist
Midland, MI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Dow Chemical in February 2011.

Interview Details – Phone interview was really laid back, they just went over my resume. About 8 1:1 interviews, they were similar to phone interview, everyone was really nice and friendly. Presentation was your typical 1 hour talk on a topic you are fimilar with... (abberviated PhD defense) About 15-20 people were present for the talk, asked semi-technical questions. Really like the research group and the research environment.

Interview Question – Tell me a time when you had conflict in the lab and how did you resolve it.   Answer Question

Senior Research Chemist Interview

Senior Research Chemist
Terneuzen (Netherlands)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Dow Chemical in November 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online through carrers@dow. Fairly simple procedure with CV and a motivation letter. I was contacted by email and the 1st round interview was fixed on a mutually convenient date. I reached Terneuzen the night before. Interview was at a farm house. Very informal. Interview consisted of most personality based questions. There were 8 interviewers. (2 interviewers per batch and each batch was given 45min). Amazing experience. I should say I learned a lot about myself through that interview. After that first interview (totally 4h including 45min luch). The second round interview was with the senior management in the US + local management over teleconference. This went for 1.5h mostly technical presentation and follow up questions

Interview Question – Questions based on each and every line of the CV (everyone had read the CV very carefully).   Answer Question
