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

Electric Operations Intern Interview

Electric Operations Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hess Corporation.

Interview Details – Interview took place through on campus reviewing for a summer internship in Retail Electric Operations. All fit questions, plus a few about why this company/why this position. Interview was with an HR employee (not someone in the division) I'm pretty certain their electric operations group is fairly new.

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

Reservoir Engineering Intern Interview

Reservoir Engineering Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Hess Corporation in September 2010.

Interview Details – For internship, the interview is really simple. The interviewer just went through my resume and asked question tightly related to my resume. The reason why i didn't get offer is because that they did not have openning for PhD students that year.

Gas Attendant Interview

Gas Attendant
Binghamton, NY

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hess Corporation in September 2011.

Interview Details – The people when they interviewed me just seemed to not be ready. The general manager was training someone else to do the interviews so i was a test. They were asking me all sorts of behavioral questions which i answered right away. When completed i was told i would get a call back the following week, and after 2 0r 3 i just gave up and let it go. The number they have for the store is restricted so i could not reach them and was not going to just go into the store and ask. Oh well, i found a new job the next week and am very happy.
