    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer (Johnston, IA).

    Interview

    Was contacted for a phone interview, and completed a week after being contacted. Was then contacted the following week for a in-person interview. That formal interview took place two weeks later. I was told a decision would be made the following week. Never heard a word after the interview after trying to contact HR and hiring manager three separate times.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer (Johnston, IA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer (Johnston, IA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at DuPont Pioneer (Johnston, IA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    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.
