I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at DuPont (College Park, MD) in October 2014.
Very informal. As a college student it was one of my first interviews making it stress free. There were two employers interviewing at once. I had met one of them at a job info session earlier that semester, making it a much easier introduction. I would definitely recommend attending an info session prior to applying if possible. I think it made a big difference in my chances.

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.

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at DuPont.
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.
