    Field Engineer - Cementing Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Unfortunately there is not much I can offer here. I had an internship and received an offer from that. All I would say is stress safety culture. Halliburton is big into safety. Show how you have been safe. Also show how you have successfully worked with people that are completely different from you. That would definitely make you stand out. You could mention how you like to get out doors and get your hands dirty. Those are all descriptive of a Halliburton Engineer.

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiating as far as I know.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Halliburton (Zanesville, OH) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for entry-level Frac and Cementing positions in various locations online using the Halliburton website. I think I applied for about 10 openings over a 2 month period. A Halliburton recruiter finally contacted me to set up an in-person interview for Entry Level Cementing position Showed up at county job center for the interview. It was a "mass" process. They had 10 or more people they were interviewing, with two Halliburton managers conducting one-on-one interviews. Felt a little bit like cattle moving through the process. The interview lasted about 10 minutes. Briefly asked me what I knew about Halliburton, oil fields and cementing (all of this info can be found on Halliburton website). Then the rest of the conversation was about the long hours - 100 hours/wk, the potential to transfer to any desired location after 6 months, and the interviewer talked about his experience in Halliburton. He didn't discuss my work experience at all. I was offered the position on the spot. I later found out that my interviewer would be my manager. I was then given a welcome packet with benefits information and a training schedule and told to complete some documents on Halliburton.com website. I was told someone from HR would contact me about setting up background check, drug testing and physical exam. I was given a start day and told that I would be gone for two weeks for orientation and training, and I would be responsible to get there (3hrs away) on my own dime. 5 days before my start date HR contacts me and asks if I've gotten my CDL permit. Not a SINGLE word was mentioned about me getting a permit. She told me I had to get the permit BEFORE I could even start. It took me 3 weeks and 5 attempts to get my permit (it's the written test only). I was supposed to start beginning of January - ended up starting end of January.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions. Just be sure you have general knowledge about Halliburton and the area of work you are applying for (ex: cementing, fracking, coil tubing, etc.) They DID NOT let me know the requirement to have a CDL permit. In your best interest to get one if you are thinking about applying.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    He asked me what salary I wanted. I requested $16/hr. He said $14.50. I asked for $15/hr. He said $14.50. Not sure why he asked when he already knew what he wanted to pay me. He told me I had to live within 1hr drive-time of the facility. I asked if they would pay for moving costs, and they would not. He said after 6 months employment if I decide to transfer somewhere else Halliburton would cover cost.
