    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    The company made me drive to the location to have the interview which was 2 1/2 hrs away after a quick phone interview. The people were very nice but yet stern. Made you seem inadequate even though they offered the position.

    Category Manager - Travel and Real Estate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    HR Advisor emailed me based on my LinkedIn profile (Was a passive candidate as I am currently employed and not looking for employment.) Met with the Hiring Manager (HM) and other stake holders. Initially, everyone appeared to be nice and I had some great discussions. Overall culture appeared to be a fit. 1st red flag, however, was when HM asked me about personal things (family) during the 1st interview, which I told him was illegal. Entire process took 2.5 months - which seemed WAY too long. 2nd red glad was when HM set up an appointment to give me an offer and was a "no show" and I didn't hear back for 1.5 business days. Finally they gave me a verbal offer and discontinued talks after HM told me I was not being transparent (I refused to provide him current compensation at my company, but was willing to provide a range).

    I based my decision on the red flags I perceived during the interview process and how I was treated by the Hiring Manager during the interviews and follow up discussions.

    Associate Accountant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The main lobby was warm. The AC couldn't keep up while I waited an extra 20 minutes for my interview. As soon as the interview started, I felt like I was in trouble. I was sent here by a recruiter to fill a temp position. I understood it to be entry level for a new graduate. However the interviewer wanted someone who had experience with pre-credits, SAP, and actually working in the general ledger. I don't have that experience yet, so after fumbling through an answer, I admitted that I expected to gain that experience through this position, not already have it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    This was a group phone interview, but it was really more of an interrogation. I can't say I would want to work with these people now, so I guess it was good thing. Anything I said, they would question it derisively, from technical answers to past design decisions. Trying to explain something, I would frequently be interrupted. The whole thing was disrespectful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    The entire interview was comprised of personality based questions. Nothing very technical but it gets you to speak technically about previous projects or experience you have. This is a good way to find out if they can get along with you at the same time finding out what broad experience you have gained in your school projects, internships, or previous work experience.
