    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Horizon Well Logging - Oklahoma.

    Interview

    The interview for the job I applied for was fairly straight forward. I arranged for a phone interview with a recruiter at their headquarters a few days after applying online. The interviewer asked a series of questions on my background, education, and overall career goals. No behavioral questions were asked. I feel that it was a relatively easy interview since I felt confident and prepared.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Horizon Well Logging - Oklahoma (Tulsa, OK) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I sent Horizon a cover letter, resume and college transcripts, I was scheduled for a phone interview a day or so later. The phone interview lasted 30 minutes or so and covered my educational experience and research. An easy interview if you are confident in you abilities. I was sent an application package which included an application for employment and forms for background screening. An offer letter appeared in my email a couple of days after returning the application package.

    Do not expect any salary negotiation, you either accept their offer or you do not.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Horizon Well Logging - Oklahoma.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email requesting a phone interview 2 days later. 90 minutes after that phone interview I received a job offer email, in which I had 3 days to accept or reject. I originally accepted and was told to purchase a plane ticket to Tulsa, and I would be reimbursed. I did so and attended training. Horizon paid for a motel for you to stay at and you are in a run-down motel room with a roommate and one full size bed and a couch. Day one of the training, you are escorted to a lab for a drug test. Then there is classroom training, safety training and mock rig training when you are in a trailer analyzing samples. This was not difficult at all, but after seeing the trailers you are expected to live and work in, and learning that getting days off was more or less a lottery, I decided not to take the job. I got a ride to the airport and no reimbursement for my flight as promised.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were if I knew what a well logger did, questions about previous employment, why did I want to be a mudlogger, how well did I do in sed/strat. I was asked about my skills in identifying minerals and rocks. Nothing really out of left field.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary and working conditions was not high enough to justify relocating to Oklahoma.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Horizon Well Logging - Oklahoma (Tulsa, OK) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Easy phone call, a few questions to verify that you are who and what you say that you are, and an offer letter. They are pretty desperate for new hires. Interviewer was friendly, and informative. Most of my co-workers had a similar experience. Training in Tulsa was easy and the only people I know to have been rejected were unable to pass a drug test.

    Negotiation

    There was none, they wanted me to show up in Tulsa in 3 days, and I told them i could not make it. The gave me another month.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Horizon Well Logging - Oklahoma.

    Interview

    I initially emailed the company in early August. I had a friend who worked for the company and he was really positive about the whole thing. I didn't hear back until mid-September. After numerous emails back and forth, I was interviewed in mid-November and finally officially offered a position in December. I was formally hired mid-January. The interview was really great. The interviewer was friendly, positive, and responded quickly to any of the questions that I had. It was very conversational overall and a really good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you determine the number of spherical marbles you could place in a hexagonal container?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. It was simply: this is the position, this is the pay, this is what you'd be doing, this is where you'll be doing it. Horizon isn't really big on negotiation. They want you to be flexible but aren't themselves at all.

    Interview

    very pleasant interview. Conversation based instead of a question/answer format. Lasted around forty minutes. questions ranged from personality questions, past experience, and situational questions. Provoked an honest interview, wanting to hire the appropriate candidate.
