Easy Interview

Application

The process took 2 days. I interviewed at National Oilwell Varco (Houston, TX) in April 2011.

Interview

The interview process was very relaxed and actually very fun. We met for cocktails at the hotel. This is a good opportunity to show your personality. You don't have to drink if you don't want to of course. Afterwards we went out to dinner with a couple of current employees and this allows you to ask questions that you may have about the process or company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Oilwell Varco (Houston, TX) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Focus is on leadership, team work, and communication skills. Technical ability is assumed at the on-site interview based on your resume and GPA so it is not the focus. You are put in many group situations and expected to talk and interact well with people. It seems being able to network is a valued skill.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between leadership and management?   1 Answer
    • Describe a time you had a team member that wasn't pulling their weight. What did you do?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate the salary based on the average salaries from the school and other offers I had received. I recommend negotiating.
