    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Typically the company is very slow at getting back to candidates. It takes weeks sometimes to get them to call you back and they only call the top 10%. There were over 100 applicants for the position I applied for. I was asked a lot about my technical experience. I was asked a lot about problem solving skills that I had and why I wanted the position.

    Information Technology Interview

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The communications process to start was largely through the website. Be warned - a lot of the job positions listed are 'honey pots', not necessarily jobs that they are looking to require immediate staffing but a way of collecting resumes for future openings. (The jobs needing immediate staffing are also listed elsewhere, like Dice.)

    The tone of the interview was a bit surprising - mostly questions asking to whether or not I felt the position would be challenging enough. After discussions with the larger group my interest in that specific group quickly waned.

    Temporary Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interview was casual, with the interviewer asking many thought provoking questions to make sure you can solve problems and work with other people. Some hypothetical questions were also asked, some of which didn't really make sense, but it seemed like they were basically trying to see your thought process.
