    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dow Chemical in April 2015.

    Interview

    - Hypocracy
    - They ask way too personal questions even for a small company standards even though they keep telling you how big, professional they are.
    - No feedback at all, I mean at all.
    - Felt like they are governed by its own employees. Which means; you will not be welcomed if you are too good for them. No competition is allowed. They are who they are and they will stay there forever.
