Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Baton Rouge, LA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Weatherford in February 2014.

Interview Details – Submitted resume at school career expo. Received phone call and asked where I saw myself in 5 years, and was told about campus info session. Received email about interview. About two week turn around. Interviewer was nice and easy going.

Interview Question – Went over my resume, where I worked and what I did at my jobs. They pretty much want to know how you think, what kind of person you are and how you deal with various situations. They asked three specific questions to everybody regarding safety and ethical situations. Other then the resume review and 3 ethical questions it was getting to know who you are and if you will fit into the company needs. Still waiting to hear back after that 1-1 interview - because turn around after 1-1 interview is about one month since they were going to other schools for final hire choices.   Answer Question

Mudlogger Interview

Mudlogger
Dickinson, ND

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Weatherford in June 2010.

Interview Details – It takes a long time for Weatherford to call you back as they have so many applications. I was a former employee that came back 4 years later and it still took 2 months to finish the paperwork. My boss was actively trying to hire me and spoke to me weekly through it. They are looking for people with good computer skills and that are easy-going enough to work with anyone. They will ask you what if questions and how you would respond in that situation.

Interview Question – If a client asks you to do something that you think may be unethical, who should you talk to?   View Answer

District Manager Interview

District Manager
Fort Worth, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Weatherford in January 2013.

Interview Details – Took a long time to get on. Phone interview then two in person interviews and then background and drug screen, which took about 2 weeks for them to complete.

Interview Question – Pretty much the normal interview questions. What did you do in this scenario, How would you handle that or this, What were you accomplishments.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Weatherford does not negotiate. What ever offer you get is pretty much what they are going to pay you. I would say be careful with this, if you know without a doubt they want you and want only you, you might ask the HR guy for more money. But if they come back and say no and you want or need the job, better take the offer.

CNC Machinist Interview

CNC Machinist
Big Spring, TX

I applied online - interviewed at Weatherford in December 2013.

Interview Details – Fill-out application on website and submit resume.

Interview Question – No crazy unexpected questions. Just a warm interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I don't have any experience with the job and Weatherford is willing to train me. I thought that was enough, but they went above and beyond. They offered to get me a hotel for a month for my move, a sign on bonus, they are paying for all my PPE including boots, uniforms, and prescription safety-glasses; not to mention a wage much higher than most would pay. I couldn't be happier with Weatherford's negotiations!

Engineer Trainee Interview

Engineer Trainee
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – How to get water up a 7 story building and what you would use to calculate the answer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – One offer was put on the table, and it was very reasonable. With the benefits included, I accepted within a day.
