    I applied online – interviewed at DuPont in October 2013.

    You apply online. They only interview candidates that have had technical internships. If you pass the prescreening they call you for a 45 min phone interview where they ask about your work experience and then a couple behavioral questions. If you get invited for a site interview they send you to headquarters where you do 3 interviews with supervisors. All interviews are behavioral based but they discuss your work and technical experience a lot

    Interview Details

    It took a while to hear back from them after initially applying online, but I ended up having two phone interviews with finance directors in Wilmington and North Carolina. The interviews were not too intensive and pretty laid back in my opinion.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at DuPont in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a phone screen interview conducted by a young field engineer currently enrolled in the program. Within the same day of the phone interview, I got a confirmation phone call stating that I qualified for an on site interview in Wilmington Delaware, at the corporate headquarters. The company provided a travel agent to book the plane tickets, and they covered all expenses of the trip through reimbursements. The on site interview itself consisted of three one hour interviews with a lunch scheduled between the second and third (last) interview.
