    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Chemical.

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter at a career fair and we didn't really seem to hit it off real well, walked away thinking I wouldn't be hearing from them again. The next week I get a call from a recruiter asking to schedule an interview the following week. I accepted to interview.

    The two people I interviewed with were very friendly and in the field I would've been working in. They asked about five questions and none of the questions were extremely technical, but they did like it when you were able to reference different kinds of methodologies you know or skills that you have.

    I walked out of the interview feeling good, and I received a call the next morning with an informal offer.

    Application

    Interview

    Applied online at college and was invited for a campus interview. All questions were behavioral and situational based questions. Not very hard but very typical group/school based questions. Conventional interview and was around 40-50 minutes. You should bring extra questions to keep them preoccupied.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dow Chemical in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied via my campus job search website, and was requested to select an interview time.

    I met on campus via the Career Center with a very nice, but formal, guy. He started off by asking me to tell him about myself. He then started a formal behaviorally anchored interview process. He asked me a series of around 10 questions. He had a sheet per question (I am assuming with information that gives him a good idea of what a good response is for the question). He also had a sheet with a table for him to put input about my responses for each question.

    The questions went along the lines of, "Tell me about a time when you were working with a team and..." They were mostly about my difference experiences with teams. He also asked why I wanted to work with DOW Chemical.

    He finished the interview by asking if I had any questions, and then we separated ways.

    He was very nice. Just be prepared to talk a LOT about your experience with teams with several examples.

    It has been a couple weeks and I have still not heard back.

    Interview

    After applying through my school's career platform, I had an interview with an engineer. Most of the questions were based off of the STAR format, so just prepare for those and you should be fine. The interviewer was very nice and accommodating. However, the entire process took almost 2 months for some reason, so don't be discouraged if you don't hear back at first.
