    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at DuPont Pioneer (Johnston, IA).

    Interview

    It was a very long interview (2 plus hours), so be prepared. Take the day off of work at your current job. I had several smaller group interviews. Each group repeated the same or similar series of questions and asked that I give different examples to each group.
