    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dow.

    Interview

    Received a request for phone interview. Phone interview was a panel interview with 4 people from the company. Several behavioral questions asked related to the job position. Passed phone interview and was invited for a site visit, which was a more informal process to gauge site fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dow (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I talked to a representative at a career fair. A week later, they emailed me to do an interview on my college campus. It was both technical and behavioral, and they said it would be the only round. I thought the interview went well. I didn't get an offer but they seemed to like me in the final rejection email.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dow (Houston, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Overall interview experience was very poor. An engineering screening test was mistakenly required for the application. HR failed to communicate my expected salary, despite my disclosing it twice. I likely could have saved my time off if they had just communicated that information to the lead interviewer, who seemed on a totally different page when he asked me to disclose it for the third time.

    The process included a generic phone screening, a phone interview, and a three-hour interview with a panel of three people.

    I was confused with another candidate and asked which department my friend works in. I do not have a friend who works at DOW. The third interviewer’s first question to me, after already interviewing for 2 hours, was "So, what are you doing here?” The lead interviewer assured me that I would hear from him personally in a week. I never heard from anyone. It took 2 months for them to finally send me a generic rejection email. I expected a company of their size to have things a little more together.

    Had interviews with four different potential supervisors. Asked me about my resume. Gave me a tour of the facility. Since they each interviewed me separately, I basically answered the same questions over and over.
