    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DuPont.

    Interview

    Very easy when going the contractor route. Because DuPont is a big company I had the impression that this interview process would be extensive and maybe even a challenge however I was wrong. I had 1 onsite interview that lasted about 20 minutes. Very clique and typical questions.

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DuPont.

    Interview

    There was my supervisor, three engineers, and HR manager in the room. They only asked canned questions. There were no surprizes. They didnt ask questions about any of my experience. The interview was purely behavior based. The content of my answers did not matter, only that there was a complete answer. I could tell i was being judged on my ability to deliver an answer, not just for what i had to say.
