    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cameron in September 2014.

    Interview

    The company was very friendly, but the overall process was somewhat exhausting. The first interview was done on campus and the second interview was done in Houston. We went to dinner the first night and then they put us up in a hotel for the evening. The next day, we had to do a presentation in front of the other candidates and interviewers. We then followed that by 3 back to back 30 minutes interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cameron in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was really easy. It was based off their core values. They want you to answer all interview questions using the STAR method. Situation, Task, Action, and Result. All behavior questions such as have you ever had to deal with someone you didn't like? Have you ever worked in a team? Pretty straightforward. The recruiter was really out of it. She kept yawning and seemed unfocused. That's my only complaint. You can imagine her yawning was a total confident booster.

    Interview Questions

    • Hardest part is answering the questions using STAR... Recruiter was very picky if you skipped a step of the method   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cameron (Houston, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was not your traditional interview that one is generally prepared to have. Upon arriving I met with the HR person who was nice and gave me a good overview of the job. The interview was with the Operations Mgr and a Procurement Mgr. Which didn't say much at all. The interview begin awkward with questions that would have been better suited for an individual who has already been working at Cameron. I got the feeling the Ops Mgr was already leaning in another direction and was going to make the interview as difficult as possible. The line of questioning was ambiguous for the most part. When he finally did ask a couple of easy questions it kind of made me over think the questions due to the other ambiguous questions

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Cameron.

    Interview

    My interview experience with them was not all that great. They came to my university for the first interview. For the first interview it was really quick, probably about 20 minutes long. The recruiter did not ask me many questions. For the most part I was the one asking questions, so it felt more like I was interviewing her. I would then have to sell myself based off of their responses rather than them ask me straight forward questions.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cameron (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Cameron came to my university engineering job fair spring 2014. I stopped by to talk to some of the recruiters then left them my resume. Later that day they called for an interview the very next day. Easy typical behavioral interview. Then a couple of weeks later I was invited for a second round interview to Oklahoma city. First day there was a simple meet and greet with other employees. Be relaxed and just talk with others. Next day is where you have to give a presentation about yourself in front of everybody (easy) . After that are the interviews. I did three interviews with three different managers back to back. Each one of them had there own select questions but most were typical STAR questions. Three weeks later I got an offer.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. I should of though.

    Interview

    Cameron recruits from my school and got my first round through a career fair. Great interview experience, I really like the guys over at Cameron. There are a lot of qualified applicants!

    1st Round: My interview was a 2 on 1 style situation that was initially intimidating since it was one VP and one current GRDP. Very informal behavioral, no hardball questions. Seems like this round is purely a culture fit.

    2nd Round: Got the email a few weeks later and connected with a travel agency that works with the company to fly us out to Houston. Had to give a presentation about myself which was very interesting. My advice: don't make a presentation about past achievements They want to know who you are as a person. That's more important.

    Interview Questions

    • Relating the relevance of my current job to what will be expected of me as a GRDP was pretty difficult.   1 Answer
