    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Aera Energy.

    Interview Details

    They came to the college and basically talked about the company's work culture and how much they focus on community involvement. I would suggest that you mention your volunteer skills in your resume because they really care about that sort of stuff. The lady from HR basically told us what they expect from their workers and very helpful in the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were pretty straightforward and nothing unexpected. They asked questions like "What is your biggest accomplishment?" and "Why Aera?"   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Aera Energy.

    Interview Details

    I talked to one of the recruiters at my university career fair, and I was the first call-back after the event. I signed up for an interview time slot for the next day, where I was interviewed by a panel of 3 senior engineers, each with a different position/specialty in the field. They requested that I come with copies of my resume and transcript for each of my interviewers. They were all extremely friendly, and it was a very comfortable dialogue. It was an open conversation, and I think it was a very positive and genuine reflection of their small company culture. At the end of the interview, they told me that it would be the only interview I would need to do in order to be considered for the position.

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Aera Energy in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met the people from Aera at career fair at Penn State. They were quite friendly and accepted my resume. Called me up that night asking if I could come for an interview the morning. They said I'd get an email with the results in a few weeks but nobody got back to me after the interview. It's been a year now. I had bumped into one of the interviewers at ATCE New Orleans last year where I found out that I hadn't got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • None. All the questions were very basic HR and read out from a prepared piece of paper. They migt as well have given it as a questionnaire to fill out rather than make it an interview.   Answer Question

    Production Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Aera Energy in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a two stage process. One on campus which was fairly in-depth. They asked a lot of questions about the ability to work in teams. Then they asked me to come up to Bakersfield where the selected engineers were put through two rounds of interviews.
    One round was with the senior echelon of the company. Which was easier than the second round which was with the newer and younger engineers. They were less friendly and more business oriented.
    We also had to take a field trip with one of the engineers who showed us their offices and took us to the field to go see the plants and oil rigs they had in bakersfield. Overall interesting experience.
