Very Easy Interview
I applied online and interviewed at ConocoPhillips.
Interview Details – I received an email from a recruiting coordinator asking me for an initial phone interview. I did the phone interview and then did not hear a word for over a week. Then they scheduled me for an office visit and flew me in. During the office visit I met with 3 supervisors who asked a few behavioral type questions. Then I met with 2 engineers for a technical interview.
So when it was all said and done, they flew me across the country (which was a logistics nightmare for me) for a lousy 2 hour interview.
It has now been 3 weeks and I have not heard a word from anyone there despite my follow-up emails and phone calls. Don't waste your time with this company. They are inconsiderate and just waste your time.
Interview Question – Nothing was really difficult. Very easy interview compared to my current company's interview standards. View Answer
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in October 2013.
Interview Details – Met with representatives at an on campus career fair and they held a follow up dinner that same night. They made it very relaxing and not an intimidating atmosphere. It was nice to talk with them and ask questions before the actual interview.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time you worked with a team and something didn't go your way Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips.
Interview Details – Was given one week notice for the interview. The interview itself was condeucted by the construction projects manager himself, and was mainly about my personality, and motivations for applying. I was also the first intern they interviewed from my program, so they asked a lot of questions about that and the content of my classes.
Was asked a few of the typical questions like:
Why do you want to work for us?
What would you say makes you a good fit for this job/internship and for this company?
What is you view/philosophy on safety?
Their website was also very helpfull in preparing for the interview. It had a lot of tips on what kinds of question I would be asked and what they expected me to know coming in. Apparently that whole section is gone...
As a side note, make SURE you memorize COPs S.P.I.R.I.T values, and their motto. (At ConocoPhillips, our work is never so urgent or important that we cannot take the time to do it safely and in an environmentally prudent manner." You will be asked about the spirit values for sure.
Interview Question – What is your view on safety? That is a tough question for a construction manager. I answered that safety is THE priority, but that it also had to be managed intelligently in order to keep a project moving forward. Prevention was the main tool in managing safety. That answer seemed to satisfy them. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very simple. As an intern, they make an offer 2 weeks after the interview (a good one), and i accept.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in March 2014.
Interview Details – Met with managers and a hiring manager for a job interview. One of the project managers looked over my resume and became snarky and made remarks about where I went to college and assumed my religious preferences. Clearly, this person was biased and religious intolerant. The other people in the room let this unprofessional behavior continue on. This made the whole interview uncomfortable. However, I acted as a professional and knew that I was already disqualified from the job because of this person's assumptions. The whole interview, this person was aggressive and asked most of the questions, seemingly to attack my character and goals in life. Again, the interview was not fair due to one person's bias. I'm not entirely sure that ConocoPhillips as a whole is free any discrimination of any kind and promotes diversity.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in November 2012.
Interview Details – There was first an on-site interview on campus where there was a 1:1 interview and I was asked 4 different behavioral questions. In one week I got a response and given an on-site interview in Bartlesville, OK. They paid for everything. I got there on Wednesday night and the interview was Thursday. This was a rotation with 4 different people asking very similar behavioral questions. After that it took another week when they finally extend an official offer.
