Drilling Engineer Interview

Drilling Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied online and 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 Question – There were no technical questions. They know your experience and were more interested in who you were rather than what you knew.   Answer Question

Once that happens they will notify you if you have been selected for the final round and go from there.
