    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DuPont (Ithaca, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    After submitting a resume online, I was contacted about receiving an on-campus interview. There were two interviewers in the room: a graduate from my school, as well as a manager at DuPont. They were both very friendly, not intimidating. 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed 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.
