    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oceaneering International (Houston, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from a recruiter the following week. The week afterwards I was invited for a face to face interview. I had a 30 minute interview with the hiring manager followed by a 30 minute interview HR Director. Both interviews went well and I was expecting an offer. I followed up with the recruiter two weeks later and I was told that the job initiatives for the role has been changed per management and the job would be reposted and I was encouraged to reapply. Overall it was a smooth application process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Oceaneering International (Houston, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the head of HR for the company regarding their open position. I had never applied for the job, but was interested to hear about it. The HR rep told me about the position, talked about salary, and then setup a phone interview for me with the General Manager. I had a good interview with the manager I would be working with, and he told me that the next step would be to come out and meet with the other managers. I followed up with the HR rep and he was glad to hear the interview went well and asked me what my thoughts were on the position. I told him my thoughts were very favorable and asked him when I could expect to hear back on the position. That's when the HR rep apparently fell off the face of the Earth. I never received a reply from that point on. I sent 2 other emails a week later to "check-in" and still got zero response. Needless to say I was left very confused and peeved that this was the level of professionalism at this company.
