    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aker Solutions in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was recruited from my LinkedIn profile by a recruiter, couple of phone screens, job looked promising, esp. as it paid more than 20k more than my current job. After phone interview with the hiring manager, radio silence for over 2 weeks before finally getting a rejection e-mail. Which I replied to with "thanks for the timely e-mail; Having not heard from you for over 2 weeks, I assumed I did not get the job". Communication could have been a lot better. But, I didn't apply, I was recruited. so whatever....

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Aker Solutions (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interview process went smoothly. I was contacted by HR to schedule an interview with the Manager onsite. He had a scripted interview question packet. It was very formal. He asked about past work experience and I had to give some examples to show how those experiences related to quality.

    Negotiation

    They did not negotiate on anything. The only thing I did not like about the process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aker Solutions (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. This occurred several years ago and the process has changed. Back then, it was a matter of asking about your previous work experiences. Now, the questions are more behavioral based. The questions are a bit more though-provoking if you are interviewing for a managerial position.

    Interview Questions

    • You will most likely be asked about any difficult work situation that you've encountered and how you handled it. The answer you provide is really to see how you handle less than ideal situations, since you will probably encounter a few challenges along the way. The answer will be tough if you've never really had any challenges or difficult situations at your previous job, or any others in the past. Some managers (like me) will ask questions that try to delve into the interviewee's personality. Experience can come along with the role, but sometimes I really want a true team player who can learn and grow.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aker Solutions (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very friendly assessment centre. Two interviews: 1 HR (going over the CV, why aker, etc) and 1 "technical". Then a group exercise..easy.. and then a 5 minute presentation on something I am passionate about: hint, talk about a hobby;they appreciate an interesting presentation. Heads up: I received an offer which was withdrawn 2 weeks later as they decided not to hire (crude price effect kicking in). Be careful if you are just going for contractors

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aker Solutions.

    Interview

    For an Engineering position First interview involved a 5 minute presentation about myself. Timing is strict so make sure you don't go over the 5 minute mark. From previous interview experience I structured it like this: Brief introduction of myself and current academic position, my passion/interests that fueled the pursuit of my course choice and the job discipline. -Brief outline of achievements and competency skills gained from employment. -1 group and 1 individual project example using STAR approach, and a sentence at the end on what I could have done better if I had repeated these projects. -Extra-curricular experience and activities/hobbies, what you do in your spare time, during summer, do you read any newsletters, unrelated interests such as music, languages etc. Continuously relate each point to how it can benefit you in the job either competently or technically. (read what they would require you to do in the job description and relate it) Second interview was informal, about an hour, competency based, which involved a more in-depth talk about some group projects at University. Provide some handouts if you can of a project that you did and harp on about what you enjoyed most and least, and what you could have done to improve. Time management is good to mention. Research into the company, what things are going on project wise, organisation wise, industry prospects. Learn a bit about the system architecture.
