    Drilling Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Apache in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    It started with Apache coming to my university's career fair and having a booth set up. I talked with a recruiter, shared my resume and discussed the different training opportunities at Apache. That evening, I was notified that I'd been selected for an interview slot the following day. The interview was a half an hour long. Following the interview, I was told I would find out within two weeks whether or not I was to be offered a position. A week and a half later, I received an email from HR letting me know that I'd been offered a position and the offer letter explaining the compensation, benefits and outline of the job description was attached. I was given a week to decide whether I would accept the position. I took the full week to think about it and replied that I would accept the position.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Apache in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very professionally managed, as I was flown in for the process, I met with the hiring manager first to discuss 2 job assignments, 1 was for a standard reserves engineer performing production forecast, economic runs for SEC and the other that was more geared towards identifying corporate impact opportunities. I interviewed with seasoned professionals addressing both jobs and decided upon the latter opportunity.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard procedure, talk about experience on the job and how that related to the job description which I was interviewing for. No trick questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Interview Details

    Completely arbitrary. Despite having more relevant work experience and coursework, I was passed over for a male. Very chauvinistic company, as confirmed by the career placement and upper level administrators at my university.
