Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX).

Interview

Came in as contractor. Took one face-to-face meeting and was offered the position on the same day. Started one week later.

Hired on as fulltime later, the process of converting to employee took nearly 6 months. Kind of ridiculous.

Interview Questions

  • No difficult questions. Just asked about tools/technology in my field that relates to my job. Standard interview question like: what are your strength and weaknesses, when did you get your certification, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Rate was pre-negotiated before the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Halliburton (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Entire process took about 1 month. 2 rounds of interview. 1 interview with local manager and 1 teleconference interview with US manager. Interview with managers were pretty fast but HR took some time to prepare for the package and were quite unwilling to negotiate.

    Interview Questions

    • Both interviews were simple and straightforward. Asking about your background/experience to find out if you have relevant experience for the position. Local manager also described some of the challenges involved in the position and asked for your opinion on how you would overcome the challenges.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiation, even though I didn't ask for very high pay. I would advise to write much higher expected pay and let them negotiate down. Also, bear in mind that there is no bonus for technology department.
