Tulsa, OK

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in February 2014.

Interview Details – The interview process was started by seeing ConocoPhillips representatives at a job fair. After my resume was considered, I was invited to an interview. The interview was a one on one sit down with a refinery engineer. After a little casual talk and "get-to-know-you" type questions, a line up of 6-8 detailed questions were asked. The questions were largely situational, asking what you did in a certain type of situation. For instance, "How did you deal with a difficult team member holding up a project?" This made the questions difficult because I have not worked in environments with these types of dynamics. If you have not had a full-time, office-type, interpersonal job, it will be difficult to answer the questions with satisfying answers.

Interview Question – When did you go against the rules to accomplish something, and how did you convince others to support that effort?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in September 2010.

Interview Details – Too many Anecdotal requests, "what would you do" "think of time when"

In hindsight, I'm glad I didn't receive an offer, because I couldn't stand to work with these people, the culture, and day to day grind in a cubicle in Houston.
