I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Dow AgroSciences.Interview Details
Applied online for A/R position, was contacted about 4 weeks later, told I was one of 20 candidates asked to visit HQ for half hour meet and greet. Met with hiring manager and HR rep, was pleasant experience, although they are a bit obsessed over SAP.
Received call a week later to come back as one of final five. I was told to expect either a panel interview or 4-5 interviews with related teams.
I also got a call from a benefits specialist who gave me a website and information on programs and insurance. I was able to see how much insurance was and surprised at how high it was.
Having read the reviews, I prepped like crazy and none of the questions asked were expected. I had 3 interviews with 3 different groups, a sales, marketing and main team. At the same time, those teams were interviewing 4 other candidates, rotating according to a schedule.
I was surprised to find that although traditionally an accounting position, this was in the customer service dept.
I was probably overqualified for position as I was told it was entry level, although it paid more than I make now. I also felt I spent too much time explaining what i do now, instead of pivoting it to how my skills translate to their position.
I left the building thinking i just as easily got the job as did NOT get the job. Nice
campus, lots of 'collaborative" space, but still a cube farm.
I was not offered the position, but the most disappointing part was the lack of a personal call. I was one of the final candidates and would have expected more than a
form letter telling me I was no longer being considered.No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
