    Graduate Engineer-Graduate Programmer, Aberdeen Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Subsea 7 (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and no interview was carried out before the assessment centre day. The assessment day is held at Subsea7 office in Aberdeen. It is a really beautiful campus and the facilities are outstanding. .

    Interview Questions

    • There is first a presentation about the company and how the day is going to be divided. They split us into gruop of 8. I had first a face to face interview with one person from HR and the possible future team leader/ manager. Before the assessment day I was asked to prepare a 15 minutes presentation about my final year project and potential opportunities for the Oil&Gas market and Subsea7. If you are invited to the assessment day, you will receive information about it Anyway, for the possibilities of SS7 focus a lot on how they will affect SS7´s values. I was a bit disappointed cause no questions were asked on the presentation. They probably just want to see your presentations skills. The interview was followed by approx. 1 hour presonality question. Describe a situation where you had to use your technical skills. Describe a situation where you led as an example. Describe a situation where you overcame a technical challenge. Describe a situation where you act as a leader. Basically all the classical behavioural question and some questions about how you take decisions and plan. After this I had a group exercise were we have to plan a route to extract as much gold as possible. It is a bit tricky and the difficult thing is to coordinate a group of 8 people. They look if you have leadership personalities and you are able to cooperate (more important). After this we had a technical questionaire about Oil&Gas activities. Example of questions were: -which factor should be considered during laying of flexible pipes- -which factor to take into consideration when choosing the materials for a flexible pipe Everything is related to design and you should focus on safety and costs beyond a bit of technical knowledge. The more you know about pipe design, the better :) That is it!   Answer Question

    Cost Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Subsea 7 (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    This was initially dealt with by recruitment team, much like an agency they were clueless. It was odd given that I'd applied a number of times before and then got offered yet another interview despite having just signed a contract. The interview was short and informal, there were no difficult questions. Shambolic comes to mind. The job details were vague and I should have realised they didn't have a clue what job role they had in mind

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    got a phone call, they offered a salary I deemed acceptable.

    Vessel Superintendent Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Subsea 7 (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Initial interview on site with HR and new manager, very convivial and friendly; I found it easy, nothing difficult, but I enjoy talking about myself, knew I was qualified, experienced and had done a lot of research and preparation, (who wouldn't?). This was followed by an informal interview one to one with the next level of management.

    Interview Questions

    • 1 question on Classification Societies, but I was able to cover it. No trick questions; on reflection, as I'm trained in interviewing and did a few years selection interviewing, I thought the panel did too much telling/selling and not enough quizzing me and I had to find ways of dropping in my skills, experience and evidence that I'd thoroughly prepared.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had a guaranteed promotion at existing job with a new bonus scheme, so I was able to ask for that. I negotiated up twice on salary, but only got 1 escalation, but also ago car allowance. There is a superb benefits scheme, salary sacrifice, industry leading pension etc
