    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Hess Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview then a team interview.

    My peers were great but the hiring manager and business head seemed skeptical. In reality, I didn't like the business head and found out she didn't last. I'm happy my offer was cancelled in the end.

    I tried applying for another job 2 years later but I could never get their website to work.

    Interview Details

    Found the job posting on my schools career website and applied through there. Was contacted and invited to a dinner when they were in town for a career fair the night before interviews. The dinner was used as a chance to learn more about the company and ask all your typical questions that you would normally ask during an interview to make the interview more meaningful. The recruiters were awesome and very easy to talk to.

    The actual interview was two, 30 min, 2 on 1 interviews back to back. Typical on-campus interview.

    Supply Chain Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Hess Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I was emailed by a recruiter about 4 months after I initially applied on the Hess website. No phone interview. The recruit immediately set up a face to face with the hiring managers. I interviewed with 3 managers at separate times in a 2 hour window. Each person was allotted ~30 minutes per the interview schedule. Most questions were pretty straight forward and were related mainly to my past experience. Not many of the usual behavioral questions. I was told to expect to hear something in 2-3 weeks. I'm still within that period so I don't have an offer yet.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really tricky. I was surprised by the lack of difficult questions.   Answer Question
