GIS Specialist Interview

GIS Specialist

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at AMEC in January 2013.

Interview Details – Recruiter from Alan and York in Dubai called me, saying they'd seen my cv on gulftalent.com. Interview was over the phone with him then with AMEC a week or so later. He seemed professional and open. The AMEC interviewer was very personable and asked no difficult questions at all. Actually the recruiter prepared me poorly because I got the impression I was being hired for a different project so spent a lot of time preparing for that. Didn't matter in the end.

Interview Question – Honestly there were no particularly difficult or unexpected questions, it was very easy although I had prepared well by practicing in front of a video camera.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The recruiter told me the range of salary I'd be offered. They offered the lowest of the range. Surprising given how well I did in the interview. I requested more and the recruiter lied saying 2 other people were being considered. I know it was a lie as I found the folder with interviewee ratings at work. There was only one other and he was recommended for another project. The offer generally was fairly good though so I was prepared to accept but they ended up increasing it by $10000

Negotiation Details – Very easy. 10 minutes with the HR director. Little room for negotiation, but their initial offer exceeded my wants..

Office Administror Interview

Office Administror
Austin, TX

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at AMEC in May 2012.

Interview Details – Previous Office Admin gave 2 weeks notice on Monday. That Thursday I secured an interview through a temp agency. Friday I received the call that they wanted me. Monday morning I went to my temp agency for a drug test and an hour later I started temping.

Interview Question – I was asked a little about IT. The question was a little vague and so I answered it verbalizing the assumptions, taking it in about three directions. The interviewer, which was the previous Office Administrator, was so impressed with my level of knowledge that she said the way I answered let here know I knew what I was talking about.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – At the time I would have answered that I thought it went well. Six months after I was hired I realized that the raise meeting we set up during the negotiation phase would not result in a raise but only a talk about how much I deserved one without it's implementation.

Entry to Mid Level Geophysicist Interview

Entry to Mid Level Geophysicist
Phoenix, AZ

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at AMEC in January 2013.

Interview Details – Found out about job opportunity from a professor. I emailed the company and filled out the application online. Within 24 hrs they contacted me and set up a phone interview. During this interview they asked me general questions about myself, nothing too technical. After the phone interview I was asked in for an in-person interview. This took about half a day and ended with lunch. I spent time talking with many different people throughout the company. The people who were not on the phone interview asked me some basic questions based off of my resume. Everyone else asked me a few questions, but again not really anything technical. A lot of the interview was them mostly showing me what they were working on.

Interview Question – The lack of technical questions was surprising.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They seemed very excited about having me, but the paycheck didn't seem to match this, especially since I would have to relocate for the position and that they have had trouble finding someone to fill the position.. They also seemed to think, that me being essentially guaranteed overtime hours was a pro and not a con.
