    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Algiers (Algeria)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    I concluded the interviewer had already decided not to offer a position before the interview started. I would like to think this was because the oil price had just fallen off a cliff.

    ITS Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Anadarko typically only hires new college grads out of the intern program, so if you're wanting a job with us, start by interning. I applied for an internship, accepted, interned, and was hired. I interviewed in September on campus and heard back in late October. The ITS intern program takes 10-12 interns from all schools. At one school alone, they received 130 applications, interviewed 13, and took 2.

    It's very competitive. Anadarko is essentially the Goldman Sachs of the oil and gas industry.
    The average employee at Anadarko equates to $3 million of revenue per year, so only the best is accepted. Out of 10-12 interns, typically only 1-2 are chosen for full time. This is based purely on performance, and how well you match up with our company values.

    Negotiation Details
    I was blown away by the offer, so I accepted on the spot. I felt it was more than fair, and had no desire to negotiate.

    Compensation for the internship is lower than companies such as Chevron, PwC, and COP. However, compensation for full-time employement is unbeatable.

    EHS Summer Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a summer internship with Anadarko through my university. I first met with a hiring manager who conducted the initial interview. I was very nervous at first and the hiring manager seemed very tough but warmed up quickly when I asked her questions about the position. It went well though and about a week later I received a call from my would-be supervisor who said he wanted to discuss the position more. When I called back it turned into a conference call interview, so I didn't feel as prepared. He also asked less generic interview questions and more difficult, position-specific questions. A week went by after this second interview before the supervisor called me again to offer me the intern position. I was elated!
