    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.
