    Interview Details

    Got hired through campus recruiting in the university. Firstly signed up for interview with a recruiter graduated from a university close by. Interview was about half an hour, with mostly questions on graduate school research experience, specialization, problem solving experience etc. A few behavior questions, e.g. how well do you work with a team, how to deal with conflict, etc. Then got an onsite interview with a group of people in the department. 45 min presentation on research, Q&A, followed by 1-on-1s. Overall people were very friendly. Questions were not very hard to answer. Be yourself and be consistent.

    Supply Chain Campus Rotation Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)

    Application Details

    interviewed at Dow Chemical in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with 2 interviewers and 4 candidates including myself. We were given around 5 questions and all of us are expected to take turns to answer those questions one by one. The questions were not too difficult except for one which I stumbled upon. The challenging part is to try to not have a similar answer with the other candidates in order to stand out. However, we often end up giving similar answers.
