    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum.

    Interview

    On Campus Interview with Meet and Greet the night before. Two Anadarko employees were present at the interview. One professional asked questions while the other wrote down my answers. Most questions were taken from a company-wide template. I was told that I would hear back with an answer within a month, but it took closer to two months to receive an email.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum.

    Interview

    I had been applying for years at any available position possible. And finally after two years I finally got a call from HR. They scheduled my interview and I ended up having an interview with my whole entire group! (apparently there were problems of not mixing well before me). After answering questions from everyone in the group, I thought it would be another long wait, but it was not! Moments from leaving the interview, I was getting calls from my references that they were already calling!! The next day they extended me an offer upon passing a drug test, background and credit check. The drug test is a hair sample. Some people said they cut a big chunk out, but the nurse was nice enough to cut two different places so there wasn't a huge gap.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum.

    Interview

    Really bad, because they ask you to record your interview and then send it to them. So if you are camera conscious you are toasted. Bad way to rule out good candidates. Lack of human interaction. No phone interview and no personal interaction!

    Interview Questions

    • One feels stupid looking into the camera and answering questions. And you have 2-3 chances to time yourself. Gave only a day and a half to submit the interview.   Answer Question
