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

Supply Chain Interview

Supply Chain

Interviewed at ConocoPhillips

Interview Details – The process was a little bit slow, but that it to be expected for a large company. They posted updates on their review of application/resume after you apply on the website. It took about 5-6 weeks from application to an initial phone interview with HR. That interview was short and straightforward to see if salary expectations and basic skills are a good fit for the job. 1 week after the phone interview i heard back and had a face to face. The face to face was about 90 minutes total with 3 people. It was a behavioral interview asking for examples of scenarios from previous employment. All questions were reasonable, no curve balls. They felt out for some technical experience and interest in future aspirations

Interview Question – No curve ball questions. Typical behavioral interview. Explaining difficult situations or difficult bosses at previous jobs can be hard but isn't anything you wouldn't expect.   Answer Question

Accounting Interview

Accounting
Bartlesville, OK

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and I heard back from a recruiter approximately 2 weeks later to schedule an interview. I was told the interview would last 2 hours, but it only went for a little over an hour. There were three interviewers who took turns asking almost all behavioral questions. Though the constant onslaught of behavioral questions became a little daunting after the first 45 minutes, everyone was very laid back so I was comfortable.

Interview Question – "What is the easiest way for a company to cheat on their income statement?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The offer was better than I expected so there was little negotiation. They were very accommodating when I told them I would need to take off a few weeks after my start date for a vacation I previously planned.
