Pdvsa Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Electrical Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I interviewed at Pdvsa in September 2010.
Interview Details – They needed to start up the turbines because they fired all the people and the plant was stopped. They were looking for someone who can help them to put the turbines into service again. There were no many people who could help in this sense because the turbines control system was not known by many people
Interview Question – The most difficult question was about my salary because I was exactly what they needed. I wanted a good salary and I got it Answer Question
Process Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 6+ months - interviewed at Pdvsa in May 2010.
Interview Details – 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.
