    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Day one was a dinner with a few personnel which was pretty laid back. We drank, ate, and talk just to get to know one another. Day two involve a lengthy presentation of each product line that was hiring at the time. This lasted all morning and until after lunch. Once the presentation were done, the individual interviews started which were pretty relaxed and not too formal.

    Interview

    I have completed the first interview and was asked to come back for a second. Very laid back interview, just asked what I was interested in then went into a very corporate, fill-in-the-blank type interview sheet. Other than answering the required fill-in-the-blank questions, majority of interview was conversational and put me at ease.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was very difficult. Just simple questions about myself and situational questions like "tell me about a time when...."   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    The first round of the interviews consisted of four situations/behavioral questions. The interviewer will go through a packet and take notes on your response based on the STAR analysis. (Situation, Task, Action, Result). My interviewer was very nice and would prompt me for more details if she felt that I did not elaborate enough.

    Interview Questions

    • All the behavioral questions are pretty standard. (ie. Talk about a situation where you had to resolve a conflict)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Halliburton in December 2014.

    Interview

    Two interviews. First was a one on one interview with a employee who was performing the same job I would be doing. Second interview Halliburton brought me out to one of their locations for two days, gave me a tour of the facility, a detail info session about the company and what it is like to work for them, then a quick exit interview. Overall a fun and easy process.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a couple of technical questions in my exit interview that were conceptually hard to answer. I believe they just mainly wanted to hear my thought process as I reasoned through the problems.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, the first year on the job is all training, so they have a very set first year salary. They allow for re-negotiation to occur once training is finished.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Halliburton (Yukon, OK) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I initially went to the job fair held in Yukon Ok. Drove all the way from Texas the hiring managers where straight forward in questions regarding my previous work place and employment history. Asked about what I had known about the company I studied for that test :) and was just my self throughout the whole process. That's what I think they really look at is how you respond under pressure. Don't think just be honest and truthful.
