    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Nabors Industries (Houston, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    After applying for the Entry-Level Mechanical Engineering position, they flew me down to Houston to let me know they would not be hiring after the drop in oil prices. They were very frank during the interview, with very little BS HR related questions. They were adamant about knowing why I wanted to work for Nabors.

    Interview Questions

    • CDL is a must, tanker and hazmat are preferred. can you work outside, swing a sledge hammer, lift and carry 100lbs? Work rotating schedule, two weeks on, one week off, also rotates days/nights? Paid training is provided, ten days I think. Many good people but also a few nuts. Rough industry but worth it for me. Not great for a family man, lots of divorce   1 Answer

    Interview

    Speedy getting you in there. Confusing about pay because what they tell you & what your check stub reads is totally different. Half the time they can't even explain it to you

    Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Nabors Industries (Houston, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Easy, but slow process. Took several days to hear back after first round of interviews. Took another couple of days to have someone call me back to schedule a second interview. Background check and drug screening had o be completed before first day of employment, which delayed process even further (I almost took another offer during this time).

    Negotiation

    Quick. Over the phone. Had to negotiate vacation time since the standard offered is poor. Standard is 2 weeks which is non competitive in this day and age.
