    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Maersk Oil.

    Interview

    Very thorough, but unusual for the US. They require all candidates to complete personality and logical assessment tests before interviewing, even management candidates. The technical part was interesting and challenging. You will have to spend about 3 hours interviewing with everyone, but they are fast with the decision after that. The company has excellent benefits and pay scale. On top of it, they offer free lunches every day to all employees (very nice).

    Interview

    Interview questions were pretty standard, nothing unusal. They rushed through the process. I interviewed with HR and the hiring managers in 1.5 hrs. I could tell they really weren't interested in my candidacy and just going through the motions of the interview process. It seemed like it was an EEO interview when in reality they had someone else in mind. They went with an internal employee. The HR person asked if I had any kids so I'm unsure what's going on with their hiring practices.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Maersk Oil (Houston, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The overall impression during the interview was very good. The interview started with HR Recruiter and was focused mostly on behavioral aspects. Right after I was interviewed by the hiring manager as well as by the department head - here the questions were more concentrated on the job and past experiences. Unfortunately the company has decided to proceed with another candidate for the job but I would be glad to take part in a recruitment process with them again.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about the worst on the job decision ever and afterwards how I would handle the situation having the knowledge and experience I have today. It was not necessarily the hardest question, but not one I was expecting so took me a while to come up with an answer.   Answer Question
