Software Developer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Halliburton in November 2013.
Interview Details – 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.

Product Specialist Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Halliburton in October 2013.
Interview Details – Got the interview through university career services website. After a week got an email from the HR saying the interview is scheduled in two days on campus. The interviewer was very nice and helped me understand the questions after stating them. Since it was the first interview, all the questions were behavioral (about 12 or so questions). The first questions was "tell me about yourself", second was "what do you know about this position?". Then the interviewer moved on to basic behavioral questions such as "when was the time where you were asked something to do and you could not meet the target" and "tell me about an occasion in your experience where cultural influence or different cultures affected you".
I did not get an offer since they were looking for geology majors and masters degree in geology as their preferred candidates, while I was B.S in engineering. I was actually surprised to be called for the interview. Great learning experience nonetheless.

Got response within a day to schedule an on site visit. Went down to houston first week of October. They mentioned that they liked my previous experience and wanted someone like me to be in the team. Interviewed with 8 different members of the team the position was within including Sr. Chemists, team leads etc most of the questions were from what I have done previously or how I would fit in. Wasn't very hard. Pretty casual. Had lunch with team members and concluded the interview with one of the Sr. scientist who was also a hr rep. Very positive and good experience. Heard back within a week. HR lady said the team was interested in hiring but they can't due to stipulations in my visa. Otherwise a very casual interview process.
