Field Service Technician Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bryan, TX
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at National Oilwell Varco (Bryan, TX).

Interview

HR was super friendly, but interview process needs to be revamped. Interview took place in a room full of people, including an engineer who used his intelligence to belittle while the others laughed. If you are not familiar with the way they specifically do things you are considered an idiot.

Interview Questions

  • To draw electrical schematics related to specific pumps that they manufacture   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

Knot enough money or growth potential
