Human Resources Programs Analyst Interview

Human Resources Programs Analyst
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Exterran in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for the position online and a recruiter contacted me the same day for additional information. I scheduled a phone interview a week later. The phone interview was asking about my specific experience. I was invited for a face to face interview the following week. Face to face was with a panel. I was told that the top 2 candidates will be invited back for lunch with the VP. I was invited back 2 weeks later. The lunch was very casual and I felt good about the process and was expecting an offer but I did not receive one. The recruiter did not reach out to tell me that I was not selected.

Interview Question – What questions would I ask my hiring manager on the 1st day of work?   Answer Question

I applied in-person and interviewed at Exterran.

Interview Details – Multiple interviews with hiring department and HR and was told the company would be in touch regarding position (offer or no offer, etc.). No response either way was received. On multiple occasions interview scheduling was set based on the company’s availability with little regard to schedule of the person being interviewed.

Engineer Interview

Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Exterran.

Interview Details – First they came to our university to recruit. From there there they called 2 of the approx 10 to come to Houston. After we arrived we were informed that there were 10 of us there from different colleges and only 5 would get a job. The next day they held six 45 min interviews which were pretty straight forward with the exception of one. One they decided to grill you and ask very difficult questions plus complex questions with no right answer.

Purchasing Interview

Purchasing
Houston, TX

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Exterran in May 2012.

Interview Details – I applied for this position online and received a call from a recruiter the same day. She was not an internal recruiter but she has been helpful. Within 2 days, I had an interview scheduled with 2 people. On my way to the interview, the recruiter called to tell me that there would be a change with who I was meeting. Once in the interview, the manager confused me with a temporary employee. We laughed it off and got to the actual interview. He was easy to talk to and it went well. After an hour, I met with another person for almost 30 minutes. It seemed I had what they were looking for and I left feeling good about the interview. Then the next day I was asked to be available to speak with someone in Brazil. This person asked for my birth date, hobbies and why I left my last position. Something went wrong here. I do not know what. The recruiter quickly submitted my resume for another position within the company. Strange experience.

Project Engineer Intermediate Interview

Broussard, LA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Exterran in May 2010.

Interview Details – I had two interviews and each one was with a Group/Panel Interview. This was a new position created for this office. An offer would have been made but the company decided to go in a different direction. They initially wanted an individual with strong technical skills and business development skills to grow a division of their company. They change the position to a division manager instead. An engineer would be needed at a later date.
