    I worked at DuPont as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent company. They have a unique culture and are very proud of their history. Core values are of utmost importance and are carried out on a daily basis. Worked with many great people. Everyone was more than willing to help me out and teach me the ropes.

    Cons

    The company makes it seem like there are ample opportunities to gain employment after internship, however the amount of positions they have available is very limited. Additionally they are in the process of reorganizing the company so it was very hectic scheduling meetings.

    Chemical Engineering Co-op Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied through on campus recruiting and got an interview a couple days later after turning in resume and cover letter. The interview lasted for half an hour and they were all behavioral questions. It is a fair interview for most of the prepared candidates. The position I applied is in MO and I think the person conducted our interview was also an engineer.

    Interview Questions
    • No really unexpected question. I will put one here:
      Describe a situation when you demonstrated you time-management skill.
