    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at W.L. Gore.

    Interview

    Process was lengthy but not complicated. They are most interested in your ability to work in teams and how you will handle challenges. I found it to be redundant at times, have to site multiple different examples of the same concepts around teamwork and giving feedback. There were some questions that gauged technical capability, but they were less complex than other interviews I've had

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at W.L. Gore (Newark, DE) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Gore came to my university campus. I was interviewed by two people and the questions were reasonable. After I got hired as an intern, I learned that they picked up on when I expressed enthusiasm, so be sure to express your interests. They also like you to hear questions; show that you're engaged, interested, and thinking.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively simple and straightforward. I went through a phone conversation with HR, where I was given a behavioral interview. Since it was HR, they were focused more on my ability to work with others and in a team-based capacity. Overall, the interviewer was very pleasant, and she did well in making me feel comfortable the whole time.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at W.L. Gore.

    Interview

    Campus recruiting led to on-campus interview. HR staff did an excellent job of keeping candidates posted on progress throughout the application progress. Recruiters were process engineers, extremely friendly. They were well-informed and prepared, and conducted several information sessions during the career fair week as well as individually for specific clubs on campus like AIChE. The interview experience was friendly and well-organized - recruiters engaged with me in conversation and seemed eager to share their experience as well as ask me about mine.
