Pros

Dow takes safety seriously. It impresses me how much they focus on requiring their employees to do work safely. They also put a large dose of responsibility and trust in their engineers to do what

Cons

The corporate organization is wierd at best. Often times managers will preside over groups working on tasks completely outside their wheelhouse. They know little about the groups efforts and it's

Advice to Management

Every 3-5 years management gets bored and re-orgs. So much effort is wasted. Try to make a plan and stick with it for a decade.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dow (United States)

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview. They had an easy 30 min first interview with someone from HR just to see if you were a good fit for Dow and generally why you want to work at Dow/why you want that specific job. The second interview was with a panel of a few people who I would be working fairly close with and it was standard interview questions, behavioral questions and a Q&A at the end.
    Interview

    For the 30 min HR interview - Why do you want to work for Dow, go through your experience/why you want that particular job, how would your boss describe you vs. how would your friends describe you, what do you like to do for fun, etc. For the panel - tell me a time you enforced a safety standard in your workplace, why do you want to work at Dow, tell me a time you messed up at work (not the right wording but you get it...) and what did you do to resolve that, tell me about your relationship with and how you manage customer comments/compaints, etc.
