Supply Chain Associate Interview

Supply Chain Associate
Houston, TX

I applied online and 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 Question – Nothing really tricky. I was surprised by the lack of difficult questions.   Answer Question

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Fort Myers, FL

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Hess Corporation in December 2010.

Interview Details – This was a complete joke. Interviewed with a store manager first, then his boss, then human resources, then the time between the interviews was crazy. I had 12 years experience as a convenient store manager and you would of thought I was being hired as a CEO. Then had 2 half day training then stuck in the worst store in the territory!! Should have ran!

Interview Question – None they were all dumb questions like do you like working in the service industry? HMMMM, I had over 26 years in the service industry and I HATE IT! When can I start? Seriously, do I like working in the service industry?...is that all you got?   View Answer

Geoscience Intern Interview

Geoscience Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Hess Corporation in September 2013.

Interview Details – Got an campus interview through department for summer intern. Both of the interviewer are very nice and pleasant. Questions are very general. They will ask about yourself, your study, work history, why you are following your career and why you want to work for them. Prepare for few behavior questions, not too hard by the end of the interview and about 10 minutes for you to ask questions about the company and your position. Absolutely no technical questions which make me feel relaxed.

Interview Question – Describe a urgent situation when you need to finish work by early deadline!!   Answer Question
