    Senior CHEMIST Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dow Chemical (Freeport, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    campus recruiting, 2nd onsite interview with future group members and manager, also talk about research with research fellows in the company. The campus interview at the University is quite standard, mainly focused on behavior questions, like what is the biggest challenging during your PhD, how do you get along with your advisors, group peers and other collaborators, what do you think is the biggest achievement for yourself during the past four years, etc. The onsite interview is more or less similar with respect to the behavior questions, but from the technical point of view, more questions come from the seminar given at the beginning of the day. The presentation was asked to be around 45 min long and many interviewers may on the phone, so it's important to make sure the audience is following during the entire process.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Chemical (Midland, MI).

    Interview

    Only had one interview. I was applying for multiple positions as an intern. I was interviewed by six people at the same time but it was very comfortable. At that time, I didn't have much interview experience so I was surprised at how much it felt just like a conservation. It was a standard interview that was pretty easy. I just showed interest and asked a good amount of questions.
