    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Dow Chemical in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview questions were were very straight forward for example, tell us about a a time when you had to work with a person who was hard to work with, previous college projects. I think that they mostly look for co-op students who could work for Spring and continues then for summer as well.
