Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Halliburton in September 2014.

Interview

Had the 1st interview (September) on campus then was selected for a 2nd interview but wasn't for the PSL what I original wanted. Accepted the interview but it was scheduled months later (December) for on-site interview in Oklahoma. Overall the recruiting staff was Great, prompt emails and they answered all questions swiftly.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Halliburton (Denver, CO) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Consisted of initial phone interview then a group interview in Denver, CO where you learned about the industry and the job while also going to a wellsite. Took some time, around 3 months between initial phone interview and offer date. Basically if you are semi-confident and willing to work very long days you will get the job.

    Negotiation

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    As you may have read already from other comments, the two day interview process is very laid back. Meet-and-greet, presentation, and dinner on the first day and field or shop visit, lunch, and out-interview on the second day. What I came to find out from the region I went for (Northeast) is that they do almost everything the same I expected from reading glassdoor comments about field engineer interview process, but the out-interview a bit different. It was 45-60 minutes long instead of the 15 minutes I thought it would be. The interviewer made all the same behavioral questions from the first interview I had on campus, he asked technical questions related to my field of engineering and also about the presentations and shop visit, and gave me a short written exam with electrical and mechanical problems to solve with out a calculator. The technical questions were very basic (i.e. difference between pump and motor, standard household voltage/freq, what does bentonite clay do when drilling). The written exam had a problem of solving for total resistance of a simple circuit, one of hydrostatic pressure, one of step-up transformers, and one wireline problem about calculating the voltage needed to power a tool down the hole at certain distance.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Halliburton (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview for Halliburtons' field engineer position, and had a second follow-up in Oklahoma City for Wireline and Perforating. The second interview was pretty standard--there were about 7 of us, and we spent a day touring the Halliburton offices and drove out to a distribution center. The actual interview process was pretty typical, although one question was in regards to engineering, albeit an easy one.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Halliburton (Oklahoma City, OK) in May 2011.

    Interview

    One phone interview. we just talked about the job and my experiences, they wanted to see if I was willing to work a pretty hard/awkward schedule, then the onsite interview was with 5 or 6 other potential candidates. It was pretty informal, we took a trip to the wireline shop and we were asked technical questions in the car. Overall, it wasn't very high pressure.

Paid for lodging, food, and travel to the location. Was given an offer, and accepted.
