    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Aker Solutions.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Aker Solutions.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Electrical Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Aker Solutions in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two hour job interview on site with a technical manager, and an HR assistant then a walk around of the workshop.

    First of all, the interview started 20 minutes late due to Aker.

    For the first hour and a half the manager went over the role and asked limited complexity technical questions about my background, then the HR guy - who looked uninterested throughout - asked some behavioural questions.

     On completion of interview there was no "next step" or timeline on the decision. Instead the HR guy just slipped off without a word leaving me with the manager to show me around. That was the last time I heard from Aker - they didn't even have the courtesy or the integrity to notify me as to their decision - despite having my email address - which is rather dispiriting since I drove 8 hours that day to attend the interview ( I have since heard from others, Aker ONLY respond if the job is offered). It should also be pointed out that the actual job function was misrepresented and didn't bear much relation to job specification sent out - it was a much lower level position than what I was led to believe .

    Overall, I found the process disappointing and dispiriting and do not recommend this company to others thinking of applying. Neither interviewers displayed professional outlook - the HR guy obviously bored and the manager didn't give the impression he knew his remit or organised enough to take the interview.
