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

Anonymous Employee
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.

Wireline Field Engineer Junior/Trainee Interview

Anonymous Employee
Oklahoma City, OK

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Weatherford in February 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online via the company website. Phone screening/interview approximately 1 week later with a corporate HR rep. This consisted of some standard interview questions such as: Tell me about yourself; Why are you interested in this job?; What makes you a good candidate for this job?; Where do you see yourself in 5 years?. About 1 week later a local HR rep from the OKC office called to schedule an interview. Arrived 15 min early for interview. Probably waited for 15 min for the interviewer. Interviewer was the Business Unit Sales Manager. Shook hands with him and went with him to the break area to get a cup of coffee. Ran into an acquaintance from college while getting coffee. Went back to interviewers office he asked what I was looking for and he would tell me what he had available. Asked what I wanted to know about the position/company. At first seemed like he might be a tough interviewer. However, the interview overall was laid back and conversational, though direct and to the point in terms of what he was looking for. About 30 minutes into the interview an offer was made.

Interview Question – Tell me what you're looking for and I'll tell you what I've got.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate. From research that I had done the offer was in line with what I was expecting. ~$60k to start + small sign-on bonus. Field bonus to start following completion of training (6-12 months) pushing salary to $75k-$85k range.
