    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    was asked a lot of generic interview questions that didn't really give the company much info about me or vice versa. After getting an offer I had to go back and ask the company more questions to find out what I was actually going to be doing.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Corning in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through campus career services. Scheduled an on campus interview. Pretty standard behavioral questions. One of the questions caught me really off guard and it really shouldn't have. I had 4 interviews that week which made it difficult to really prepare for this one especially since it wasn't my top choice.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dow Corning.

    Interview

    Found out about the positions at career fair at my university. Then, got an on-campus interview which was for 30 min with couple behavioral questions and brief research talk. A week after that, got a phone call from the project leader to ask me few more questions about my research background. About 2 weeks after that, got an on-site interview which consisted of informal dinner with the project leader and a day of interview. Started with 1 hour research seminar and 5 interviews (1 hour each, one-on-one interview) with lunch break and lab tour. Each interview was mostly behavioral questions and all the interviewers were very nice and informative about the company and the Midland area. Still waiting to hear back about the offer.
