    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nabors Industries (Houston, TX) in December 2014.

    Interview

    After applying for the Entry-Level Mechanical Engineering position, they flew me down to Houston to let me know they would not be hiring after the drop in oil prices. They were very frank during the interview, with very little BS HR related questions. They were adamant about knowing why I wanted to work for Nabors.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nabors Industries in June 2014.

    Interview

    My interview at Nabors was a panel interview which included five managers. Initially I was told there would be one or two hiring managers in the interview and I was surprised to see all five managers sitting around the conference table. At first it seemed like an interrogation, but I just rolled with it and it was a positive experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nabors Industries (Midland, TX) in December 2012.

    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 Questions

    • 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.   3 Answers

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nabors Industries (George West, TX) in April 2012.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nabors Industries (Houston, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Easy, but slow process. Took several days to hear back after first round of interviews. Took another couple of days to have someone call me back to schedule a second interview. Background check and drug screening had o be completed before first day of employment, which delayed process even further (I almost took another offer during this time).

    Negotiation

    Quick. Over the phone. Had to negotiate vacation time since the standard offered is poor. Standard is 2 weeks which is non competitive in this day and age.
