- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Weatherford (Houston, TX).
Was brought on by a friend, so my interview was very minimal. I was a previous vendor that assisted Weatherford for years so my skills and support grabbed their attention.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Weatherford (Houston, TX) in February 2015.
Met at a neutral site, had met before. Reviewed state of the oil industry. This was the second interview for the same position. Unfortunately, no feedback from Weatherford was received. Neither, good, bad, nor indifferent. There has been no close out to this interview. I would like some feedback for closure to the process.

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Weatherford (North Houston, TX) in October 2014.
I applied on September 22, 2014 and got a call to come in for interview on October 13, 2014. The Interview was scheduled the next day (October 14, 2014) that is 3 weeks after my application. My interviewer started by telling about himself and the department I will be working in if hired. Then he went on to describe the job responsibility to me and made clear that it is an entry position even though I have almost 4 years experience working in the upstream industry. However, he explained that I would have the opportunity to move up the ladder if made an offer and I accept. The interview was conservation like. I really enjoyed the interview. It was best interview in terms how it went and how comfortable he made me feel during the whole process. It was by far my best experience during an interview and I have done quite a lot of them. 1. He asked me to tell him about my experience and what I have done before now. 2. He asked if I have any question for him to which I responded by asking a question and he answered honestly and diligently. 3. He asked me to tell him my greatest strength as a Geologist, and then followed that with asking that I tell him my greatest weakness also. 4. What made you think that you are equal to the task involved in this job (Wellsite Geoscience Specialist Position)? 5. He asked if I have PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) used on the rigs. 6. What project have you done or been part of that prepares you with the skills needed to succeed in this role? 7. He told me that the job involves 60% lab/office work and 40% Wellsite work, which he said is the worst case scenario, that in fact, it is more like 70% lab/office work and 30 Wellsite assignment. 8. Why do you want to leave your current job for this one? 9. Then he asked me if I have any further question. 10. He told me to expect a call 3 weeks out for the outcome of the interview, then escorted me to the reception area and told me to wait for him to get his business card for me. 11. The interview lasted for about 35 minutes 12. After 23 days I called and they told me that the position has been filled. I was disappointed that they did not email to tell me about the outcome of the interview until I felt tired of waiting and gave them a call.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Weatherford (Houston, TX) in September 2014.
Face to face. Simple and quick. If you think logically, can do simple math, are good with detail, and can work almost unsupervised, then this maybe for you. It's a simple job, but if you can't slow yourself down and work within time constrains then this can turn into a quick trip to no job.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Weatherford (Houston, TX) in September 2014.
It was very quick, was interviewed the same day by 3 different management employees and they didn't make it intimidating. They payed for my traveling expenses in order to interview me. The most fun interview I ever had. They were supportive and responded to all my questions. They also showed appreciation for my time in there and the interview ended.

I applied in-person – interviewed at Weatherford (Houston, TX) in August 2014.
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.
- Can you talk about your work experience? Oh by the way we have 10 min left. 1 Answer

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Weatherford (Houston, TX) in July 2014.
It was very easy. They ask you behavioural questions first and then they ask you about previouus experiences with supply chain management. Then, you go through multiple panel interviews when they ask you the typical: "tell me about a time when...." Also, you get to do a presentation for a couple of VPs of the area.
