    SHE Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I applied and got an email for a phone interview. The person organizing that was responsive and appeared eager to talk to. Shortly after that, I was asked to come in for f2f. I thought it went well - all day process with 3 sets of 2 interviewers and a plant tour after lunch. Then saw the position was reposted after the interview so I reached out and was told I was still in the running and would be notified either way. Then never heard anything back. What a waste of time and so very unprofessional to just not respond at all. If they didn't feel I was good fit, it's not difficult to say "thanks but no thanks" or "decided to move on with other candidates"

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DuPont in April 2017.

    Interview

    First received an email saying I might be a qualified candidate but needed to take an online screening which consisted of a data entry typing test, some critical reasoning/logic questions, and some situational questions. A few days later, I received an email saying I had passed the test and they would schedule an interview within a few weeks. About a week later the hiring manager called and scheduled an interview. The interview consisted of a 6-person panel and had both technical and non-technical questions. I heard back within a week with the job offer.
