    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Chemical (Houston, TX) in October 2016.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dow Chemical (Berkeley, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I talked to local recruiters on campus and was invited to an on campus interview after applying. The interview was strictly behavior, pretty conventional as far as interviews go. There were no technically based questions, mainly just based on your past roles and some situation based questions. Make sure to bring a bunch of question since their script runs out of questions pretty fast. Ended up getting an offer but turning it down for another internship.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dow Chemical.

    Interview

    The interview was a standard interview with the usual questions and lasted approximately one hour. Even thought the interview was for a student employment position, the questions were the generic questions asked of any candidate. The experience was made better by engaging the interviewers and asking them questions. If the interviewee has a positive attitude and clearly articulates thoughtful answers to questions, they are likely to leave a positive impression.

    • Give an example of a group project in which one of the members was not contributing. How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dow Chemical in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through university career center. The process took around three weeks and interviewed on campus. It was not tough one. Basic star question. But the moment interviewer ask me question he started writing word by I word that I was saying and that made me confuse and I screwed everything. At the end he suggest me to improve my confidence level and I told him to get some interviewing training. You don't need to type in everything to what I am saying. Blalalalalalla
    Definitely got rejection after three weeks. but the interviewer reply me that he talk about my comment to his hiring manager and they also suggest me to only take notes. Lol

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dow Chemical (Lubbock, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my university to work with Dow. I interviewed one on one with a gentleman on campus. I would say that the interview was pretty basic overall, the questions were simple and many were behavioral. A short time later, after they had reviewed everyone's applications and interview responses I received an offer by phone.
