I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and through the university career center. Talked to the recruiters at the job fair and also attended their info session.
The interview consisted of discussing my resume with several STAR style questions mixed in that helped further describe my resume and experiences. Be sure to prepare for these as they are looking for a bit of detail. There was one lady talking to me while another was writing down my responses and marking up a copy of my resume.

Engineer Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in September 2010.

Interview Details – I did not like the personality test. Questions that don't have anything to do with your engineering skills- just having the right answer and being prepared for the curveballs. Why not a skills test? They show you a map of field locations you can go to for your first internship and when you don't act excited about them it is all over.

Interview Question – What locations would you prefer?   Answer Question
