Analysis Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Dril-Quip.
Interview Details – This was an on campus interview that was pretty low key. Only took 30 minutes and a good portion of that was the interviewer explaining the companies operations. They also showed a video, which I thought was kind of strange for an interview. The couple questions they asked were behavioral. I was not invited to a second round interview. It took me months to find out, even after following up several times with both the employee that interviewed me and the recruiting manager. So that was frustrating, especially because the interviewer made it seem like I would be moving on to the next round both during the first interview and after following up.
Interview Question – Pretty generic behavioral questions. I think one was "talk about a time you solved a problem". Answer Question
