    Quality Manager Interview

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

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Weatherford in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took too long. They had me come over to the corporate offices three times to interview with one person each time, these could have been done in one session. Wasted my time. The interviwers had no clue on how to conduct an effective interview. All three of them spent 50 min talking about their background and the company in a 60 min interview. After 3 weeks I haven't heard back from them. I consider this as lack of courtesy and professionalism.

    Engineer Trainee Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Weatherford in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application in late October 2012, and got contacted for an interview in December 2012. The recruiter was slow in responding to emails about the position, but once she scheduled the interview, the process picked up some.

    My interview was over Skype and it lasted 30 minutes. The questions ranged from my resume to getting water up a 7 story building. The interviewer spent sometime trying to get to know me better and understand why I would be a good fit.

    Once the interview was completed, I received an offer in early January 2013. I was then placed in the training program for February 2013.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Weatherford in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied on their company website for one position, but was interviewed for a totally different one. This was ok but I was given no information regarding the new position at all. I found out what job it was in the interview. Well first HR called me asked if I was able to an interview "next week" and asked if I could be back in town. I was away and had moved away from Houston, they would not pay for my travel expenses back to houston (2200 miles away). Emails and questions beyond that call were not answered and were ignored. I made my way to houston thinking that I would get a good job and a good offer. I received an email the day before the interview was to take place of when and where.

    In the interview I met with the manager and another engineer we spoke for some time with the standard questions being asked. The interview oddly took place late in the day and lasted for 3 hours. The interview ended in a tour of the facility.

    I received an offer ~5 days later from HR with only 2 days to accept or decline.

    Interview Questions
    • Random questions concerning past experience. Nothing special.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was low considering the lack of bonuses, vacation, benefits etc and only allowed for 2 days before it expired. I declined and asked for a new offer due to the obviously low offer. There was no reply or anything to that email from HR. Then when the offer expired 2 days later the original HR hiring rep called me very angry that I refused the letter. He was very rude and blunt, he called every number but my mobile and everyone he spoke to told me "some rude guy called from weatherford". I then contacted him and stated my case about the low offer and said I was expecting a counter offer, he then agreed to go back and talk about the offer. He said that he would contact me either way concerning the offer, he did not reply again. He was very snappy and upset.

    The main reason I turned down the offer was because lack of communication from HR. If I was given an offer and no emails or calls were returned with my questions, what am I to expect from a company HR if I am to work there. I did not trust HR at all they were very distant and rude. Although the manager that interviewed me was great.

    Any company that will not negotiate or at least admit they will not, is not a company worth working for. I was not some new graduate looking for a job that would accept the first bone placed infront of me.
