Senior IT Advisor - Enterprise Architect Interview

Senior IT Advisor - Enterprise Architect
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hess Corporation in July 2014.

Interview Details – The entire process was very thorough and professional. The HR / recruiter contact explained the process in advance. On the day of the interview, she also provided a full explanation of the benefits offered and some background information on each of the staff who conducted the interview The interviewers used the topgrading method as well as informal discussion. They allowed plenty of time for me to ask any questions as well. The interview lasted just over 4 hours.

Supply Chain Associate Interview

Supply Chain Associate
Houston, TX

I applied online and interviewed at Hess Corporation.

Interview Details – I was emailed by a recruiter about 4 months after I initially applied on the Hess website. No phone interview. The recruit immediately set up a face to face with the hiring managers. I interviewed with 3 managers at separate times in a 2 hour window. Each person was allotted ~30 minutes per the interview schedule. Most questions were pretty straight forward and were related mainly to my past experience. Not many of the usual behavioral questions. I was told to expect to hear something in 2-3 weeks. I'm still within that period so I don't have an offer yet.

Interview Question – Nothing really tricky. I was surprised by the lack of difficult questions.   Answer Question

Geoscience Intern Interview

Geoscience Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Hess Corporation in September 2013.

Interview Details – Got an campus interview through department for summer intern. Both of the interviewer are very nice and pleasant. Questions are very general. They will ask about yourself, your study, work history, why you are following your career and why you want to work for them. Prepare for few behavior questions, not too hard by the end of the interview and about 10 minutes for you to ask questions about the company and your position. Absolutely no technical questions which make me feel relaxed.

Interview Question – Describe a urgent situation when you need to finish work by early deadline!!   Answer Question

Piping Designer Interview

Piping Designer
Minot, ND

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Hess Corporation in March 2012.

Interview Details – initially I was quizzed on skills by a recruiting agency and was brought to the hiring managers attention, she then called me and was really selling the good conditions at their mancamp, comparing them very favorably to her experience with north slope camps such as I just came from the last 5 years. I was not selected because my expertise is with AutoPlant design software and not Cadworx, which indicates they must have had many other applicants with Cadworx training.

Interview Question – describe your expertise in adapting to harsh climate conditions.   View Answer
