Condensate Truck Driver Interview

Anonymous Employee
George West, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nabors Industries in April 2012.

Interview Details – Speedy getting you in there. Confusing about pay because what they tell you & what your check stub reads is totally different. Half the time they can't even explain it to you

Interview Question – Most common question is "why Nabors?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None they offer a little higher compensation than most so usually everyone accepts

Employment Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Midland, TX

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nabors Industries in December 2012.

Interview Details – An initial telephone meet and greet. A second telephone interview, still with the recruiter, but more in-depth about work experience, computer programs that I have used, etc. The three phone contacts were then followed up with an in-person interview with the hiring manager.

Interview Question – The three pre-employment assessments, which left me cold because I had not been forewarned. One was a psychological assessment, then a math skills test, the last was a spelling/grammar test.   View Answer

Administration Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Nabors Industries in March 2009.

Interview Details – The interview was a mixed bag. The first two people with whom I interviewed had experience in my functional area had considerable experience with the company and with my functional expertise. My eventual boss did not. Good, salt-of-the-earth people for the most part. Work culture is pretty much a one-way street, not a partnership or contract type of culture. The company pays you, so they treat the relationship as more of a superior/"we own you" relationship than a partnering relationship.

Interview Question – There really were no difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Be firm and they will pretty much pony up, but that is probably because they consider everyone expendable and interchangeable and know they can adjust the salary structure at any time by plugging someone else into the job.
