    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DuPont (Wilmington, DE).

    Interview

    started with phone interview with a panel including the hiring manager. Then I was contacted a week after for on-site interview. On-site interview was organized but very draining. It took the whole day from breakfast to dinner and with a 45 min-technical presentation. This was followed by panel interviews. Interview questions were 80% on technical knowledge.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at DuPont.

    Interview

    This was a very Mechanical process, that painted a picture of what to expect as a newly-hired employee. It made me question whether or not I really wanted to be there. I felt like I was just a human resource going through a process. Questions and Dialog was driven from a company-scripted paper. The interviewers seemed to be bored by the act of reading questions from the piece of paper. There was a big black crow perched on the window sill of my interview room. It must have been an omen telling me to avoid this place!

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions about experiences and knowledge. The company expects the highest ethical standards. Many questions about difficult interpersonal relationships in the work environment.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DuPont in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to this job through an internal job posting. Informational interview was followed by my manager calling the hiring manager and recommending me for the job. I got a face-to-face interview, as well as two other folks, 4 weeks after the informational interview. My manager thought I would be promoted into the job, but someone else had a more competitive experience background thus resulting in me not getting a job offer.
