Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Halliburton.

Interview Details – I applied online through my university's career website. I received an email confirming that I was accepted for first round of interviews about a week later. I interviewed on campus in a one on one interview. The interview started out sort of casual with the interviewer asking things like how many classes I had that day and then started asking about my resume. The rest of the interview was from a sheet of scripted questions about how I would handle myself in different situations or how I've handled past situations.

Interview Question – Tell me about a recent situation where you used critical thinking and problem solving skills.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Halliburton.

Interview Details – Got chosen for an on campus interview after talking with the Halliburton representatives at the information session they put on. The interview was not difficult. They started the interview with informal small talk and their nature was very good willed. The interview then proceeded into a series of behavioral questions that were not difficult for any well rounded engineering student to answer using school or work experience. About a week after the interview I got an email saying that I was selected for the second round of interviews.

Interview Question – What was something you did to satisfy a customer? When have you used a trick to make something easier?   Answer Question

Field Engineer Interview

Field Engineer

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

Interview Details – Got a first interview on campus. Flew out to their main office in Colorado a month after for a a second interview. Second interview was 2 days long. There were at least 10 other candidates there. They did a presentation about the company, and took us on a tour of their facilities. It didn't feel like an interview, and felt very informal. However, I felt like they were observing us the whole time (seeing how we interact, asked questions, etc.). There was one-on-one exit interview, asking what locations and product lines interested me. They also asked questions about what they presented, and what they showed at the facilities. So pay attention the whole time!

Interview Question – Name a good/bad decision that you have made recently. Why?   Answer Question

Field Engineer
Brighton, CO

I applied through college or university and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Halliburton.

Interview Details – Interviewed with a Human Resources Rep on campus. Approximately 3 weeks later I received an Email that I had been selected for a second interview and had to fill out a survey for my top 3 locations and product service lines. Filled out the survey but they decided to send me to a location that was not on my list. I went anyways and the interview experience was good. Was not extended an offer because I told them I wasn't interested in the locations they sent me to.

Interviewed at Halliburton

Interview Details – The interview was a laid-back experience, more like a regular conversation. I felt comfortable answering their questions and had a good feeling when the interview was over. They also asked me some quasi-technical questions to get an understanding of my grasp of basic engineering concepts. Nothing too difficult.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years?   Answer Question
