    Facilities Engineering Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EOG.

    Interview Details

    It was very laid back and I was interviewed by 2 engineers (not HR people) one who had been with the company a long time and another who had recently graduated and was an intern. They asked questions more about how I would handle engineering situations and things related to my resume then technical things. Overall it wasn't stressful and pretty easy.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult one was probably a question about a time where you worked in a group of people and they didn't get along, what did you do? Still there weren't any gotcha type questions.   Answer Question

    Senior Environmental Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EOG in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was run through "the gauntlet" of senior and senior management staff with whom I'd be working as I was told that the process was made on a consensus basis. Interviews consisted of a series of visits to the Division Office...3 trips, which EOG paid for. Received accolades about my background and experience in oil and gas regulatory and my technical expertise from operations, permitting/regulatory and government affairs. Glowing recommendations from peers and former clients whom I encouraged them to contact.

    Never spoke to an HR person until I was set up for an interview with the Division Manager/VP. Spoke with two HR people prior to my same-day meeting with HR (a very young HR person and one very old). Conversation very general, and spent most of time going over the company benefits and perks.

    Was pressed for salary expectations, but only stated that I would be able to fit in their budgeted range were we to reach an agreement to offer me employment, Older HR person became visibly upset. Just kept telling him that I was confident if we agreed I was a "good fit" with them, I was sure we could work out a fair compensation package. Kept pressing me but politely refused.

    Interview with DIvision Mgr/VP went well, especially considering that the entire interview panel/management had "warned" me he was "quirky" and could be "off the wall." I found none of that in my interview and felt completely comfortable and confident in speaking with him as he was an obviously highly intelligent individual and not hard to hold conversation with.

    No one in the entire process asked me a single technical question about my work and background. Told my professional story and was only asked, "why do you want to work here," and "what questions do you have for us?" I did little or no talking except in my very first interview. By the time I had run "the gauntlet" I was 99 percent sure I would see an offer. Called back the next day to follow-up and was told by a senior staffer that HR had concerns and "the consensus was I didn't fit the EOG culture." Say what? I hardly discussed anything with HR, except "why do you want to work here?"

    Maybe it was the giant bruise I had on my chin from a mountain bike wreck a couple days before? LOL.

    Have never not received an offer for a position that I've gone that far with....all in all, that just seemed strange.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EOG in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Got an initial phone interview and was told I would hear back in a week. Initial interview went well and I was even sent a more detailed job description and the starting salary info including bonuses and stock options. After the initial interview I was suppose to get a call back to set up a formal interview but I never heard back from anyone and the recruiter would not respond to my email. Oviously some of ENRONS culture still lurks in the reformed EOG resources.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at EOG in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I loved the two people I interviewed with. Was honestly the most laid back and stress free interview I've ever had. I applied even though I didn't have the major they were looking for and they granted me the interview. Thought this was a plus for the company that they weren't afraid to look outside the box. Didn't get the job (the major), but they were so nice that they actually looked for other positions for me and the HR lady was so awesome that she even recommended me to another company,

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EOG in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    My initial communication was by phone and answered some interview questions. I didn't hear anything back for several weeks, but I kept calling to inquire about the position.

    Then I finally received a call for an interview which took about a month.

    Interview process went smoothly - first with someone I would be replacing and then I was interviewed by my boss. He was very easy to talk to and explained the position clearly.

    It took another 2-3 weeks before I heard back from the HR department offering me the job.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what my mode of transportation would be to get to work! I said I would probably ride the bus which they questioned because ther would be some nights I would have to work late. I let them know it would not be a problem as my bus runs pretty late or I could always get my husband to pick me up if need be.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
