    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the difference between c# structure and class.   Answer Question

    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.
