I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in March 2012.
Interview Details – I have applied to the position through their corporate website. 2 days later got a call from HR about telephonic interview.
Telephonic interview is more technical and focus on getting a feel about the candidate. Lasted for 30 minutes. Hiring manager and other technical person talked on the phone.
Got a call from HR next day about in person interview in Bartlesville following week. Used company shuttle to fly and stayed there 1 day.
In person interview is the best interview I ever had. Had a tour of ConocoPhilips campus for 30 minutes. It helped me a lot to calm down and focus.
After the tour they take me into a meeting room. 3 member panel interviewed me. Very friendly and its a two way communication. They asked some technical questions and then some behavioral questions.
After the interview had a lunch with the team.
Felt very confident after the interview.
Got a call from HR next week and he asked my salary expectations.
Got the offer letter few days later.
Interview Question – Tell me about a situation you did learn new things and how you applied them. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not negotiated much. Offered me the salary according to my expectations.
Once you tell the salary range they will send you an offer letter with their figure. I don't think there is a scope for negotiation after offer is made.
They have very good benefits like 401k , pension plan..

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in January 2012.
Interview Details – I received a phone call about 2-3 weeks after applying for the position online. I was asked to join them for an onsite interview scheduled for one week later. The interview consisted of two short 30 minute interviews with a panel consisting of 2-3 people in each panel. Everyone was very friendly and the interview process was more like a conversation. They did ask some standard behavior questions to describe a time when you were in a difficult situation, etc. Each member of the panel shared their story and did most of the talking. I was able to respond and react to each of their comments and asked some follow up questions. One of the most comfortable and natural interviews I have ever been through. I received a brief phone call exactly one week after my interview that I would be receiving an email offer from them. This is a company that really feels like a family and I can't wait to get started.
Negotiation Details – The negotiation process takes place between an HR specialist and the hiring manager. They communicated my questions and counter offers to them directly and responded back in a very quick and timely manner. Overall, I believe there is room to negotiate but it might be difficult as its done indirectly through HR.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ConocoPhillips in October 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.

Interview Details – So, this is after they fly you down for an onsite interview. It involves about 5 different interviews strung out throughout the day, and a presentation you have to give likely on your thesis.

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