    Bioprocess Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at DuPont in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Full day interview running from 9 AM - 3:30 PM. The day started with giving a presentation on my Master's research followed by Q&A (assessing the ability to present technical material). Afterwards, the remainder of the day was spent in 30 minute interviews with 1 or 2 individuals (principle investigators, technology managers, current research associates, human resources, and a director). Overall the interview process was very relaxed and all of the interviewers were friendly. There is a large safety culture in DuPont and it helps to demonstrate past experience regarding safety incidences.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were related to my particular research. Others were more broad (i.e. how do you learn something new?). Nothing too specific, they did not deliberately ask technical questions to assess competency in my particular field (Chemical Engineering).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    DuPont goes on frequent hiring freezes. I got caught in one and am currently working as a contractor. The contractor to regular employee seems to be fairly standard in the R&D side of the company (think of it as a trial phase).
