    Geoscience Intern Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Details

    Interview took place through on campus reviewing for a summer internship in Retail Electric Operations. All fit questions, plus a few about why this company/why this position.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hess Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their website, and had an interview with an HR Generalist and someone on the IT team, though if I were to be hired, I would be working for a different IT group. The HR interview was a typical interview, asking me to describe myself, etc., and the IT person was more of a technical interview - nothing too difficult. About 3 weeks later, I was contacted to have another interview, this time with two members of the IT group I would be working for. A combination of technical and general - nothing too bad.
