    Interview

    Submitted my resume at an information session at my university. Received an email notifying me about a phone interview. Scheduled a phone interview. It was with two people. Phone interview went poorly and they asked very specific questions regarding my experience in wet chemistry. Left the interview feeling like I was unfit for the position. Be prepared for technical and behavioral questions.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • No really unexpected question. I will put one here: Describe a situation when you demonstrated you time-management skill.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DuPont (College Park, MD) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked why I chose my major. I was able to go on relevant tangents from this question until the end of the interview.   Answer Question

No technical questions were asked, and they told me at the beginning the interview was just to understand my resume and my experiences more, while helping me understand what the internship would be like.
