    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DuPont (East Lansing, MI) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First briefly describe your research, then ask behavioral questions. It took about an hour, and the interviewer is a technical man, so he is very friendly. However the interview seems to be a mock, since none of us (about 20 students) get into the next round, and we waited about 3 months to hear about the sorry letter...Don't know why they come to campus and don't know why they didn't take anyone...
