Job Info

In this new and innovative engineering role within North America you will experience three different job assignments of 8-months within Dow Coatings Operations, most likely at two different US Geographies/States.

You will take on challenging projects and learn best practices and processes through which you will acquire business-critical competencies. You will collaborate with people from various backgrounds to create innovative solutions for tomorrow's challenges. If you are a New College Graduate with a bachelor or master's degree in engineering, then this opportunity may be for you. Operations within Dow is comprised of some unique focus areas that translate business strategies into operations priorities and results. The focus areas are Manufacturing, Maintenance, Engineering, Environmental, & Reliability.

Opportunities in Operations include a broad range of responsibilities in chemical plant safety and environmental performance, process operation, optimization, modification, maintenance, and technology implementation. Engineers must use sound technical judgment to enable safe and efficient plant operations. We combine world-class expertise, future-focused technologies, and sustainability to solve global issues. Our Engineering employees work as part of a team at Dow and we have many opportunities to address challenging real-world problems.

The candidate will participate in a 2-Year (24-month) Rotational experience in the coatings business. It begins with a 8-month rotational assignment at one of our primary coating facilities (Bristol/Croydon, Kankakee, or Knoxville). The 2nd rotation will relocate the employee to a different U.S. coatings facility. The 3rd rotational assignment will return the employee to their initial Coatings location for an 8-month period.

Based on business needs, there is the possibility that the rotational candidate may be consulted on a 4th rotational assignment or permanent engineering role at a coatings facility based on needs of the coatings business. These rotational sequences could change slightly based on the needs and priorities within the business and would be discussed with the candidates as they arise.
