    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The main lobby was warm. The AC couldn't keep up while I waited an extra 20 minutes for my interview. As soon as the interview started, I felt like I was in trouble. I was sent here by a recruiter to fill a temp position. I understood it to be entry level for a new graduate. However the interviewer wanted someone who had experience with pre-credits, SAP, and actually working in the general ledger. I don't have that experience yet, so after fumbling through an answer, I admitted that I expected to gain that experience through this position, not already have it.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I applied on a Wednesday and received a call the following Thursday. I had a brief phone interview and was told I was a great candidate and would hear back soon to set up an interview. They called the next day and my interview was scheduled for the following Monday! The interview began as scheduled, however I quickly realized how over prepared I was. The questions and style of the interview were VERY relaxed and laid-back. It felt less like an interview and more like a nice chat about my work experience. As much as I had prepared, I wasn't expecting that since they are one of the biggest and most successful companies in the world. But like I've read in other reviews, this seems to be their style. The entire interview lasted about 30-45 min. In the end, I thought it went well and I was grateful to have had the experience. I sent a brief follow-up e-mail the next morning but never heard back. I only recently received a rejection letter via e-mail, 2 months after the in-person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions, but I was not expecting the interviewer to talk more than me. I learned a lot about the person and position, but they did not get to learn enough about me and how my skills and experience would value their department.   Answer Question

    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had the first round interview on campus, after applying to the company through our college website. I was a bit surprised since I did not visit them during career fair (their line was too long). The first round interview was with their college recruiting HR manager. Although it was STAR questions, the interview flows more likes a conversation than Q&A style. I was invited to a second round interview at Houston and it was a 2 day event. The first day was not an interview, we just went there and got to know the hiring managers, got a tour of the site and had dinner with some engineers. The second day we had the interviews. They were hiring 2 electrical engineers for the drilling department. I had 2 interviews with 2 different team. The interview really depends on the interviewer, the first guy I had was more technical orientated, so he asked how I would design a certain circuit, asked about systemverilog, simple DSP knowledge, and basic programming skill. The second interviewer focused on my previous projects. He asked me to draw out the circuit of a previous design I made. He also asked about other technical aspects of old projects that I have done. Side note: On the same day, there were also mechanical engineers interviewing for the company, they all had behavorial questions only.

    Software Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Halliburton is quite like fella Schlumberger, an oil-service company that merely hires software developers. But Halliburton is not totally like his fella Schlumberger, they do not appear on Rice University's career expo. And they bring in info-sessions, as well as on-campus interview. Purely bluff, like fella Schlumberger. Purely non-technical questions, like fella Schlumberger. And you never know why you are ignore, why you are approached. I am in the first kind. One of my friend received an onsite invitation email, the email tells the date to go onsite, but without a time, a location. And the date has passed, quiet.
