Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Occidental Petroleum.

Interview Details

I applied through a recruiting event. The only negative thing was that they told me to expect a call, but they never got back to me. I would have appreciated it if they told me I didn't get the internship so I could make other plans.

    On-campus interview only. Had a panel of three people asking me questions for a period of about an hour. I thought that I had done fairly well; unfortunately, I was not given an offer.

    Handed in resume to a professional at a student organization career fair. Attended info session at university. Networked with professionals. Applied through an university career website and the company's website. Went in for an on-campus interview. Nice people, but did not enjoy the structure of the interview. Asked for business cards, but was told only the recruiter may be contacted. Received decision by email almost a month after.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Occidental Petroleum.

    Interview Details

    During the interview I was first taken into a room where the head HR lady introduced herself and asked me a few questions that did not pertain to the job (mostly just formalities. I was then taken into another room and interviewed by two men. The first thing one of the men asked was how I was enjoying my Petroleum Engineering classes when it was very clearly stated on my resume that I am studying Mechanical Engineering. The whole interview was pretty much a waste of time. After several minutes of pointless questions they told me to go back and talk to the HR lady again. I knocked on the door and she said "Good morning! I'm glad to see you here this morning." Note that this was 15 minutes after she had already talked to me. It was very obvious that she had no memory of me being there before. Big waste of time considering that OXY asked ME for an interview!
