    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Weatherford.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received a call for interview within a week. Had an in person interview with two managers that lasted around 3 hours. After interview I was told what the next step in the process would be and I was given a tour of the facility.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly behavioral questions. They presented several work scenarios and asked how I would respond to them. Did not ask much about academic background, in fact they made it a point to let me know that they weren't going to ask about my grades. I was asked about things that were on my resume, like projects, volunteer work and internships. Only question that threw me off was when they asked me why I chose to go to the school I went to.   Answer Question

    Design Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Weatherford.

    Interview Details

    Got the first interview via University recruiting. Interviewed with a recruiter who asked typical interview-type questions.

    Got an email about a week or two later inviting me for an on-site interview in Houston. Flew out there with a few other people from my school. We each interviewed with 4 different engineering managers, about 30 minutes each. They all pretty much had me talk about my resume and they also wanted to know what my interests/hobbies were. Then they fed us lunch and then they took us on a tour of the facility. Flew back that evening.

    Received an email about 2 weeks after that with an offer.

    Overall the process wasn't bad. Everyone I met in the office that day was very friendly and welcoming. Definitely seem like a good group of people to work with.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Weatherford in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Weatherford treated me like royalty. Great experience overall. Two people who ran the program interviewed me, nice guys. Questions asked were mostly based on what I've done via my resume...a couple of tougher questions were asked. If you have taken machine design or statics and dynamics it won't be difficult to answer the technical questions.

    For this program, they have a set rate I assume at which the salary is set. I didn't negotiate.

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Weatherford.

    Interview Details

    I received a "cold call" from a recruiter regarding the position. I had a phone interview on a Wednesday. The phone interview went well, so they scheduled me for an on-site interview two days later, on Friday. The actual interview process was quick and painless - it lasted about two hours. It consisted of a sit-down interview with two individuals, each in their own office. There was a perfunctory review of my resume; most of the time was taken up with general questions about my background, project management skills, accomplishments, etc., until I turned the conversation to the company and specific HR issues. Each interview chat concluded with a smile and a handshake and a definite feeling that the decision was already made in my favor. No indication that any other candidates were even in consideration. I received a call on Monday morning from the recruiter offering me the job.

    Overall, the interview and hiring process were very well organized and it was a good experience. The recruiter and HR Generalist were extremely helpful and attentive.

    Interviewed for a contract software development position. Originally called by a recruiter for a short phone interview.

On the next day, the recruiter called with an offer without any on-site interviews with regular employees or management.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Weatherford.

    Interview Details

    My interview was very short. Weatherford in Casper, Wyoming tends to hire family members or close friends even if they are not qualified. The interview process was very unprofessional and short. My application and resume we're not even looked at. They had me do my application online during the interview and told me I was hired because they needed to hurry and fill spots.
