Human Resources Generalist Interview

Human Resources Generalist
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oceaneering International in April 2014.

Interview Details – 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.

Graphic Design Interview

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oceaneering International.

Interview Details – I applied online, got a call the next day for a mini phone interview, then immediately scheduled a face-to-face interview. I had a fantastic experience, and the people were all very welcoming. I felt like the interview was more like a conversation than an interrogating interview. Great company, great people, and great experience.

Interview Question – None of the questions threw me off. They were all your typical interview questions, which then lead to further discussion. They are very fair interviewers that are not trying to trip you up.   Answer Question

Designer Interview

Designer
Morgan City, LA

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Oceaneering International in November 2012.

Interview Details – Contacted by Technical recruiter which set up interview with Oceaneering engineer. Engineer liked credentials and experience, then was selected immediately. Told job would last as he (the Engineer) claimed the job would last a very long time as the company is "always busy." Was told to show up for work about 2 weeks following interview but when showed up nothing was ready and took weeks to get workstation that wasn't someone else's. Engineer was highly disorganized and would take enormous time to get equipment. Never was issued safety hat, was promised extras (business cards, company jacket, additional training at Houston facility) that were never happened.

Interview Question – Oddly there were very few questions, difficult or otherwise. Engineer bragged on himself and how easy going he was, which he was. Talked about doing projects that never happened. Talked about freedom to leave early anytime. Painted a pretty picture but fizzled out.   Answer Question
