    Senior Biologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dow AgroSciences (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    (Since I have been with the company so long, I usually am the interviewee. My comment is regarding the interview process.) Most candidates are brought in for a group interview, but these interviews are broken up into several different interviews. The interview groups can be varied depending on the candidate and the position they are applying for. But the groups include interviewing with people they will work with on a daily basis, then project managers, and then supervisor(s) but not necessarily in that order. Masters and PhD candidates usually have to do a presentation, followed by a round table where scientists can ask further questions about what they presented and their qualifications. Usually these candidates get to go out to lunch with interview team.

    Interview Questions

    • What makes you feel that you are qualified for this position? Provide examples where you have done related work?   Answer Question

    Sales Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dow AgroSciences.

    Interview

    On campus interview, Indianapolis interview within 2 weeks. Responded back within 2 weeks with no offer. Indianapolis interview was very relaxed but they were looking for key words and specific examples. There were many uncertainties because of the "merger". Job security was not guaranteed. Questions about the merger were not answered directly. There was a lot of speculations. Relocation is a must, so if you are not willing to move to anywhere in the US don't bother applying.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The interview is really a series of interviews with people in the department you will work in. The interview was an all day interview, each interview was 30min-60min long depending on the interviewer. Lunch was provided and the lunch was really an opportunity for others in the department not interviewing to ask questions so be prepared to stay sharp during lunch.

    Interview Questions

    Standard campus hire procedure - A pity not to get it
    Both technical and behavior questions were asked during the interview. They looked into your resume and experiences carefully and professionally.
    I was offered an onsite interview after the first round resume screening and campus interview. I was asked to give a 30-min oral presentation about my PhD work, and had about 8 rounds of 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 interview with multiple group representatives. I was shown and introduced around the lab by the end of the day.
