    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Statoil in October 2014.

    It was a very simple process. I was contacted first through an email. I was contacted for an interview, it was changed to a phone interview due to location logistics. The interview was twenty to thirty minutes long. After the interview, notification was given less than a month later.

    Facilities Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Statoil in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I spoke to them at career fair for about 5 minutes before they asked me to apply online. I was initially rejected but they scheduled me as an "alternate." Upon walking into the room, I was greeted by two Statoil engineers. They do not hire recruiters for this position. Full-time engineers will be asking you behavioral questions. No technical questions were asked.

    Senior Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Statoil in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Meet with HR representative, who provided a short <30min presentation of their culture, benefits, etc. One of the things that stood out was their view on career growth. I guess in Norway where the company is based, one has a job for life, so they take a "long" approach. I interpreted this approach is limited career growth. Secondly they work in what's called an open office concept so four cubes in a "pod," are put together.

    Senior Researcher Environmental Management Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Statoil in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    They contacted me after about a month and scheduled the interview for the following week. They started with a 15 min review on the company which I already knew and the benefits. The job description was a little vague on who they really want for this job. Based on the job description, they need someone to have a broad experience on every aspect on environmental engineering which is impossible. They asked me some questions like "do you have experience on this and that "which it was clear from my resume that I don't.

    Interview Questions
    • What motivated you to do that job?
      What is your strength? (But she meant what you can bring to us?)
      How much chemistry or biology do you know?
      Explain your previous research.

    On campus interview for an internship. Two interviewers both super friendly. It was more of a conversation than formal interview questions. They talked about my resume and got to know me as a person and then went on to ask some questions. Didn't talk about my GPA or classes.
