    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – 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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed 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.
