    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at DuPont in November 2013.

    Interview

    Conference style phone interview that involved basic resume questions. Invited to an all day on-site interview that included meeting with about a dozen people individually or in small groups. Was required to present a 1-hr seminar on my previous research. Weeks went by with no communication until I emailed hiring manager about the status of the position. I was told I was 'highly recommended.' I had to email every month for 5 months to get a status update only to finally be told they could not make any offers for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DuPont (Wilmington, DE) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I first spoke with the Principle Investigator over the phone, and she asked me about my relative experience and basically screened me as to whether or not I could work with the basics of the job. I believe that 4 other candidates were interviewing. I had my interview in early May, over the course of 2 days and it took about 2 or 3 weeks to receive an offer. The onboarding process took about another month.
