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.

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.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in November 2010.
Interview Details – There was a first round interview with human resources. Basic information - asked about my resume and experience. After the second round I was invited to the headquarters where I was given a brief tour of the grounds. I interviewed with 4 different people in the communications department. I then took a writing test, AP style test, and wrote a sample press release. The press release was the toughest because it talked about natural gas terms that I knew nothing about - even though in the interview they said that it did not matter if I knew nothing about the oil and gas industry.

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?

Interview Question – What is your definition of Working Capital? What happens if this gets larger? What happens to this if your Current Liabilities go down? View Answer
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in December 2011.
Interview Details – The interview opportunity was given through my University. I applied for the interview and was chosen to be selected out of the pool of applicants. An interview with ConocoPhillips is unlike a typical one. They ask questions that enable them to see what your character is like; leadership skills, working in a team atmosphere, confidence in your abilities. The questions are along the lines of "What is the biggest obstacle that you have come across in your life"....and questions that follow up you answer such as "And how did you handle that situation.". The best advice I have for an interview with this company would be to be honest, be yourself, and be able to talk about 4-7 different times in your life that have shown a successful track record such as school accomplishments, work experiences, and life changing experiences.
Easy access to management.
Lots of incentives to work hard.
Younger culture is starting to take hold.
I interned here several times before graduating and accepting an offer.
