Drilling Engineer Interview

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

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips.

Interview Details

It was a decent interview, typical shuffle between different managers and future work colleagues. I was able to ask questions very candidly and be open.

The questions that managers had were rather insightful, I was surprised at the personal nature of questions that were sometimes asked (showed what I thought was a caring spirit)

Interview Questions

    Very intimidating, Behavioral interview questions will be more pointed, more probing and more specific than traditional interview questions:

    Give an example of an occasion when you used logic to solve a problem.
    Give an example of a goal you reached and tell me how you achieved it.
    Describe a decision you made that was unpopular and how you handled implementing it.
    Have you gone above and beyond the call of duty? If so, how?
    What do you do when your schedule is interrupted? Give an example of how you handle it.
    Have you had to convince a team to work on a project they weren't thrilled about? How did you do it?
    Have you handled a difficult situation with a co-worker? How?
    Tell me about how you worked effectively under pressure.
    Follow-up questions will also be detailed. You may be asked what you did, what you said, how you reacted or how you felt.
