    The second stage was the technical interview, in my case rather than a personal interview, it was a group one. We had a test describing some practical situations in order to develop a maintenance strategy for a Major Equipment

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at PDVSA (Puerto La Cruz, Anzoátegui (Venezuela)) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The process is really slow, since in my case i just had to wait around six months. They initially contact you for the Interview, around two months later than the appliance and then around two more months to call you again to do some medical tests and then around three more months they call you to sign the contract. Some people have been waiting even more than a year for this process.

    Interview Questions

    • They normally asks a lot about your university projects and subjects, but for some people, the harder question are just those about politics, geography or History.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I actually doens't have the chance to negotiate since i was unemployed at the moment and i kinda liked the offer at that time.
