Research Scientist Interview

Research Scientist

I applied online and interviewed at DuPont.

Interview Details – Really nice interviewers including a couple of scientists and a recruiter. Start with my own project and they quickly went over my research. Then introduce their requirement for this particular position and ask me specific questions like how to work with equipments. Then we have some casual talk about life style. In general, it's a comfortable interview but I did not move forward.

The process took a day - interviewed at DuPont in October 2011.

Interview Details – I applied through university recruitment and got a 2 on 1 interview. The two interviewers were pretty nice and sociable but seemed kind of bored and uninterested in the interview. Afterwards they could not give much insight as to when to expect to hear back from the company regarding a second-round interview, and I was not contacted again. Straight-forward behavioral and resume type questions.

Interview Question – Tell me about your experience with...from your resume   Answer Question
