    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Devon Energy.

    Interview Details

    Went through on-campus internviews. From talking to them to the career fair to the day of the offer, the entire process took about a month. First round interviews were on campus with three employees, second round was at their building and was three back-to-back, one-on-one interviews. First interview had questions that you would never really think of. Not hard, just very specific. Second round was a lot more conversational and behavioral.

    SCADA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Devon Energy in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    HR is over whelmed. Can take months before they contact you. Upper Management has little oil & gas experience & fear anyone that does.....so don't expect the job. If you have experience that equates to more money for them. They will ask you questions & have no idea what they need to be looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult question if you are qualified for the job. Only apply if you are a veteran and young.   View Answer

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Devon Energy in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very casual. I am not sure if it was to to get me comfortable or if it was a tactic to throw me off. It was very different from most interviews. It definitely changed up my typical responses. They focused on personality and drive more than resume specifics.

    Accounting Inern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Devon Energy in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was in a room with 3 other people who took turns asking me various questions. They had a huge list of questions and would randomly pick from the list so the questions asked are not the same for each interview. They do ask a good amount of behavioral questions related to your resume and some tricky questions to trip you up. After the initial interview, they had a morning on-site interview process where each candidate would have 3 one-on-one interviews and lunch. After the on-site interviews, they would make their selection for the internship.
