    Chemical Engineering Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I applied through on campus recruiting and got an interview a couple days later after turning in resume and cover letter. The interview lasted for half an hour and they were all behavioral questions. It is a fair interview for most of the prepared candidates. The position I applied is in MO and I think the person conducted our interview was also an engineer.

    Interview Details

    Submitted cover letter and resume online. Heard back a few weeks later from a potential supervisor. After 30-60 minute phone interview, I was offered a position. All interactions were very friendly and professional. I was surprised to be contacted because there was no on-campus screening or anything. I submitted my resume on a whim and it ended up turning out very well.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at DuPont.

    Interview Details

    I applied and was contacted for a phone interview. It was your basic standard behavioral questions relating to the type of work. There was only a single interviewer who would be the direct supervisor for that position. It was very friendly and non-intimidating. I was told within 2-3 weeks I would be contacted either way regarding whether I was selected for a personal interview, so I havent heard back yet.
