I applied through the DuPont website and received a call about a month later asking me if I would like to do an onsite interview. I accepted and went to the on-site interview. The interview consisted of meeting with the HR manager in the morning and taking a tour of the facility. After that, I met with an engineer and spoke about what was to be expected. I was told that I would receive a call with in a week letting me know if I was going to receive an offer or not.

I applied through university career services. I was selected a week later for an interview on campus. Two engineers were conducting the interview. They had allocated 30 minutes for each person. The interview wasn't difficult. They alternated questions; one guy asked a question then the other and so on. Mainly behavioral questions.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at DuPont (Wilmington, DE).
A former coworker from another job called me because he was being promoted to another department and wanted a good person to fill his position. So I applied on line and interviewed (twice) in the same month. First interview was with some of the team members with whom I would be working. Second one was one on one with department director. At both interviews, they made sure I was comfortable and in a relaxed atmosphere (offered water, coffee, tea)

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at DuPont (Wilmington, DE).
I sent the application letter to the job host, and first had a phone chat with one of the research investigators in DuPont CR&D. After introducing myself and my research, she was rushing to ask me and send her some research slides for next step phone interview. They kept asking me many detail technical questions during my phone interview, and I was invited for an on-site interview three weeks later. The on-site interview included a dinner with the manager before the visit day and the next full day including the research presentation and several one-on-one meetings. Many detail technical and behavior questions were asked, and some of them were really challenging, but should be normally prepared. I felt not too bad for the entire interview process, but I was told to not be considered any more two weeks later without any reason noticed.
