The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at National Oilwell Varco (Houston, TX) in April 2012.


Submitted my Resume through a University Career Management Center. Was accepted for initial on campus interview. The interview was a easy behavioral 1:1 interview with a IT manager. Received a call back and was invited to a corporate visit in Houston, TX. At the corporate visit the first night was a social mixer with current BIT employees and some current employees, this was mainly a Ice Breaker make sure to become friends with the current BIT that picks you up at the airport and they will help introduce you to important managers/VP that night. After the social mixer is a small group dinner that is to get you to relax and meet some current employees. After dinner their was a optional "bar night", in which the current BIT's take out the candidates, dont be afraid I attended and was still offered the position, so use it as a chance to really talk to the current employees and learn about NOV. The next day was a long day with presentations by the CEO, and Benefits package. After is your interviews these are all very similar to the first interview mainly behavioral questions allow the managers and directors to get to know you in these interviews because the fact that you have been invited this far NOV is interested in you, they are mainly looking for fit now. To finish the day are tours of their facilities and a dinner with top level managers and VP's alot of whom you will have interviewed with just make sure to continue talking and letting people get to know you.
