    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Saudi Aramco.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume online, heard from the company 3 months later. Had 2 telephone interviews and 1 video-conference interview. The people that I spoke with were friendly and professional. Asked technical questions and reviewed my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviews went very well. Everybody was very friendly. After 3 interviews they then they sent me an application to fill out that requested the gender and ages of my dependents and my spouse's complete name, birthdate, and social security number. Completely illegal practice. There was an actual line on the application that stated unless every line on the application was filled out then it would be null and void and every line must be filled in order to apply for the job.   1 Answer

    I applied online – interviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Everything was done via email. The recruiting team was top notch. Unfortunately, I was completely dissatisfied with the two men from Saudi Arabia who Interviewed me. They kept mentioning my age (I look younger than I am). It was quite uncomfortable. Lucky for me I was offered the job I wanted (not this one).

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed twice.

    First time the team was very disorganized and I was shifted from room to room while they tried to determine "fit". People who interviewed me had no idea who I was or even a copy of my resume. Saudi just read his phone throughout. No offer from that one - hardly a surprise.

    Second interview went very smoothly: focused, good conversation and to the point. I was told right there that an offer would come.

    You should know how you can add value and explain how they will benefit. Understand the history of the company, have knowledge of the country and its customs. You should also try to network with people who work there. I contacted them and they were quick to connect, but did not continue when I asked them follow-up questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    There is a significant difference between being employed as a contractor and being employed directly by Aramco. If you have the opportunity be employed directly by Aramco as the benefits and pay are significantly better than working only as a contractor. This does not only include pay but also benefits such as housing, air plane tickets, length of vacation, and many other perks.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no inappropriate or unusual questions. Just know the job and what you are expected to do.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Some people negotiate for higher salaries, especially if they are not a direct hire.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Interview was conducted in their Houston location in a jammed packed 10x10 small room, with 3 individuals + myself; so 4 of us total. I believe they were interviewing for multiple positions in a very short span of time, my guess 10 interviews per day minimum... almost on a scavenger hunt. I believe I met their CMO out of Dhahran, an American but then there was a weird individual; who almost intimidated me and looked like a Saudi individual but on a higher position (well connected / influenced). I was easily intimidated because they put me in a spot, the Saudi guy made it look like... he is doing me a favor or something. Anyways, interestingly enough they even had a local Graphic Designer (from Houston) in the room for asking questions - how does that make any sense? They were not even sure which position I was called in for. And on top of that I felt I was discriminated by that "Saudi King" in the room.
