    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview Details

    Halliburton did a recruitment event on the university campus. I submitted my resume online on the college career center website, submitted a survey, and went to an informational meeting that was scheduled the day before on-site interviews. I was contacted late evening the day before for an interview. After the interview, I was contacted about 3 weeks later to complete a survey detailing my job and location preferences and informed that I will be contacted for a second interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview Details

    I was recently interviewed for the Field Engineer position in the Wireline and Perforation PSL in the Rockies Region.

    Halliburton came to my university for an information session and on campus interviews. The on campus interviews were simple STAR questions with unexcited employees. After the interview, I was notified via email that I had been moved on to the second round and was asked my top location (region) and PSL choices. I was later offered a second round interview for my second PSL choice (wireline) and first location (Rockies).

    With the offer came instructions for the interview, such as arrival time, method of transportation, etc. It wasn't until the day before my interview that I noted that there had been a mistake in my reservation. The email I received from HR instructed me to go to a location over an hour away from the Halliburton camp. Confused, I called HR and they informed me that a mistake had been made and they provided me with the correct hotel. I was thankful to have called them, or else I would have missed the interview due to their slip up.

    The second round interview was rather unorganized as a whole. The first afternoon the other candidates and I (9 of us total) went to the camp and were given a presentation on the specifics of the PSL. We then went out to dinner and returned to the hotel with little information for the next day, besides the fact that we would be picked up at 6:30 and might go to a frack pad.

    On the second day, we drove out to the frack pad after getting PPE from the camp. We arrived at the camp and looked at the wireline set up, though operations were down due to a malfunction. We left after about an hour and returned to the camp for interviews.

    The interviews were again very straightforward. It felt more like a conversation than an interview. They ended up taking far longer than expected so I believe some candidates may have missed their flight out. Again, it was rather unorganized. I was driven back to the hotel after my interview, and headed home.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional process, for the second round interview one of the interviewees that worked at Halliburton was a real jerk and because I did not pick his PSL he played on his phone the entire time I interviewed and was very unprofessional. Also when I said I wanted to move up to management after breaking out they chastised me and said that I needed to work in the field.

    Interview Questions
    • No tough questions, for first round interview all behavioral based. Second round was just about position you wanted to be placed in.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview Details

    I applied online from my university's career website. Halliburton provided an information session the night before the interview. The hiring process consists of two interviews. The first interview involves standard behavioral-type questions with an engineer in any of Halliburton's service sectors. The second interview involves interviewing with an engineer in the service sector you wish to be apart of.

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with 2 Engineers. Talked about the position then asked theoretical questions. Questions were difficult and they did not talk during this part. They also communicated with each other while muting themselves. Entry Level positions doesn't mean 0 year experience, Halliburton would like you to have some previous job experience.

    Meet on campus for a 30 minute interview really nice guy that was optimistic towards my resume and told me he would send me through to the second round, but I guess I got cut in screening because I did not get the second interview. I had a 3.4 but they do not seem too concerned about GPA...

    Interview Questions
    • They want a lot of leadership experience so be prepared to have answer questions and talk about when you had to be a leader.
      How do you motivate people?
      Other than that just the typical interview questions
