    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ION Geophysical.

    Interview

    Very gentle interviews. No technical drills at all. The interviews are one-to-one. They hardly ask any technical questions. It seems they trust the employee who brought your resume in. So, if they have an opening and if you have a friend who is in some good position there, then you can almost be sure that you get hired by them. I never see anyone hired through a recruiter there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at ION Geophysical (Houston, TX).

    More conversational and behavioral questions. Open to work extra hours if needed and necessary. A motivator. 3 separate person interview - includes HR rep as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't have any difficult or unexpected question. Very intuitive questions that can be easily answered.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered a very competitive market salary; unnecessary to negotiate. Vacations are nice and sick days are accrued separately from PTO days, which is a perk.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ION Geophysical (Houston, TX) in July 2012.

    Interview

    This company did an interview that consisted of multiple interviews with various team members and multiple managers, as well as the VP of IT, and The World Wide Applications director. I had one interview that lasted about 3 hours. They had already called and left a message that they wanted me to join their team before I had even reached my home after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked pretty softball questions like what languages had I worked in and to what level of complexity. There were very few technically specific questions. They also wanted to know what analysis methodologies I had worked with. That was pretty much it.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ION Geophysical (Houston, TX) in April 2007.

    Interview

    this had to be one of the best interviews i had ever been on. The Manager was very pleasant and easy to talk to. After all introductions were completed, I was given a formal orientation on what the company was all about. After this we took a tour around the facility and I had a chance to interact briefly with the rest of the Engineers present. I was introduced to the primary systems and given a crash course on its functionalities. I would say this all took close to 1hr.20mins. total. At the end of the interview, i was told i had what they were looking for and i would be contacted shortly. Great interview.
