    Business Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hess Corporation in September 2014.

    Interview

    I went to an on-campus information session that was offered through my college and I got my interview by talking to them afterwards. There was a group of Hess employees conducting the interviews, half engineers, half HR. My experience was very negative, the engineers were very aggressive and rude, the junior one was CHECKING HIS PHONE during the interview and the senior did not seem to notice/care. I was told to expect a phone call the week after the interview, which never materialized, and I never received any communications from Hess after that.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (Houston, TX) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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.
