Logistics Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Woodbridge, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hess Corporation in November 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process for this position was split into two days. The first day was a one on one interview with an HR representative. The questions are primarily behavioral. Essentially, the representative wants to figure out how you'd fit in the company. The second day took place in the Hess building in Woodbridge, NJ. During the second day, all potential candidates are given an interview schedule including an overview of the company, scheduled time slots with industry experts, and a cocktail networking session. Decisions are made about two months after the second round of interviews.

Interview Question – The interviews aren't very structured. The interviewers are primarily concerned with how your personality would fit in Hess's atmosphere.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary and benefits are non negotiable.
