    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bartlesville, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bartlesville, OK
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • "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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ConocoPhillips in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Recruited at on campus job fair and I applied through my university. The interview was completely behavioral, and they expect answers to follow a STAR format (Situation, Task, Action, Result). I also think they asked me to walk them through my resume. After interviewing, they told me I would hear back in 1-2 weeks if I would be continuing in the process, however it took a little over 4 weeks.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ConocoPhillips in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    They took us out to a pre-interview dinner the night before, at a nice place. The next day we were taken to a "holding" room where we were greeted by a current employee who answered any questions we had and gave us some confidence. We were then taken back to the room where I was greeted by my two interviewers who I had met the night before. Since we had chatted at the dinner, the atmosphere was pretty relaxed. All behavioral, nothing hard. Took a little over 2 weeks for the to get back with me.

    • Tell me a time when you had to recruit other people? Was it difficult?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation as the price is very high compared to other firms for an internship.
