    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Canrig Drilling Technology (Magnolia, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Submit resume with NABORS, wait for 6 weeks, finally get called in, finally get a sit down with plant manager. The entire process took a long time due to an immense backlog of potential employees. The plant manager was pompous and self absorbed so as long as you seem just a little desperate for the job, you will get it.

    Interview Questions

    • They were already pretty intent on hiring me, so there really weren't any difficult questions asked.   Answer Question
