    Interview Details

    I was invited for an interview 4 months after applying, which was a first for me, but is common for SA due to the high volume of applicants. The interview was the most engaging, challenging, and positive interviews I've ever had. The panel was knowledgeable and interested.

    Project Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Saudi Aramco in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    It takes a long, long time to go through the process and the background check is very thorough. Sometimes, it seems as if there are lot of hurdles to cross (and there are) but Aramco has a process that works. The interview and information session went well and if they are really interested, you get a call back rather quickly after interview. In my case, I got an offer within a week of the interview. The information session is spot on as they do a great job of describing life in Saudi Arabia. The staff at Aramco Services is very good and they are very pleasant and they do a good job of working for you. If you are going through the process, be patient...it will eventually happen. The waiting is the most agonizing part of the process. Interview is fairly standard and just be sure you know your job and you'll get an offer. They know if you have been doing the job through your answers so apply for something you are good at. Best wishes and hope to see you here after the process!

    Engineer I At Consulting Services Division (Engineering Services) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Saudi Aramco.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a position - but I got a call for interview for a similar position after 3 months. The interview was scheduled within few days in London. We couldn't agree a mutual time for face to face interview in London - so I attended the video conference / Skype interview in September 2014 with two interviewers who interviewed from London Office. Both interviewers were nice and pleasant persons to deal with, but no idea how the interview in Europe or America is conducted. After few minutes of introduction, they started asking questions. Only one general question - why I changed so many jobs in my 25 years of career. All other questions are purely technical, but very basics. I could have answered 100% correctly if I was interviewed 15 or 20 years back. As I worked in a senior team lead role, I answered 80% correctly and remaining 20% I told them where to find those information e.g. code paragraphs etc. But, they were expecting me to answer exact value e.g. a specific value from a code paragraph. Overall, the interview went very well and the interviewers seem happy. I am awaiting for the outcome. I would have asked more tricky / situational type / competency based questions / a normal technical discussions rather than memory check type questions for such a position. Anyone with 5 years exp. could have answered Saudi Aramco questions correctly, but may not be able to perform the job what they are looking for.

    I have been contacted by HR Agency in UK. They submitted my CV to Saudi Aramco who found it acceptable for the role in object and then organized the face-to-face interview at their UK premisses within few weeks. After the interview I have been notified about results within 15 days.
