    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    There was a total of 7 interviews including an presentation of my thesis research. The presentation was attended by the interviewers. The presentation was the main part of the selection process. I was being judged on how I dealt with questions that seemed very imposing on the outside but were very simple in nature. However, during the personal interviews, I was asked about the basics of electromagnetic theory and also whether I had rudimentary knowledge about oil wells.

    Drilling Consultant I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    For this position, I was referred by an employee and former colleague. I corresponded with the hiring manager only during the interview and during subsequent conversations involving an extension of an offer and my acceptance. The reason for the lengthy duration of the entire hiring process was due to scheduling problems in also interviewing with the client that had particular interest in using me as a resource. I performed only one panel interview, in which I presented my past work, most desirable skills, and knowledge of Halliburton Consulting. The presentation subject outline was given to me before the interview, with little time to deviate at all. I would not suggest deviating anyways. The presentation was followed by a questioning period, which was performed predominantly by the 7 or so panelists involved in the interview. The hiring manager offered a solid summary of Halliburton Consulting's outlook and operational processes, which can be found on their website (I was quizzed briefly about one of these processes, in fact). Overall, the interview was enjoyable (save the question portion). Everyone was professional, encouraging, and acknowledged any difficult questions with a bit of humor, which was much appreciated. The final question - asked by the hiring manager - was the standard "Is there any reason why you would not accept this job if the offer was extended?" question.

    Negotiation

    I think it is always best to negotiate salary, but do not expect to get much more than the initial offer. I had a competing offer of a much higher value from another company, but was not offered any additional increase in salary by Halliburton Consulting upon signing with them. To be fair, a month later, Halliburton Consulting decided to go ahead and honor the higher salary offer, after I had already signed with their smaller initial offer. I do not know if this is internal policy or if this was given to me specially for reasons unknown to me, but it was a nice surprise regardless.
