Had a phone interview with my boss, which lasted about an hour. This led to a full day interview about 10 days later, where I met individually with a number of scientists (30 minutes each), had a panel interview with my work group, and gave a 45 minute research presentation

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at DuPont Pioneer.

    Interview

    I first had a phone 'interview', where I spoke with one of the Breeder's at the station for about 45 minutes. I told him about my academic background, the research I did for my Master's degree, and generally about what kind of work I was interested in. It had a pretty casual feel to it and I guessed he was trying to get a grasp of what my personality was like and if I had the science background to be a good fit.

    I was e-mailed shortly after the phone conversation and asked to come visit the station for an in-person interview. 3-4 people were present during the interview, but only one or two of them actually asked me questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Can farmers just use the seed produced from the Pioneer corn they grew for next year's crop? Would this be desirable for them from a cash-perspective?   Answer Question

    Negotiation
