    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Williams in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and after a week I received and email asking to complete an online interview. I was directed to a third-party website that recorded my video responses to six questions. The questions were fair, however, I did not enjoy recording myself without talking to someone. The interview was convenient and I would like to hear back from them. Hopefully, they understand that I am more comfortable talking to people, rather than recording myself.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Williams (Tulsa, OK) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Phone Call and In-Person Interview This was for the Business Analyst (Professional Development) Program. The Phone Interview was easy. They basically said you didn't need to know anything about the industry. They were looking for recent graduates who wanted to learn about the industry. A day later, I got a phone call for me to come to an in-person interview. I was out of state, so they did provide travel for me to interview. When I got there, it was like 5 hours of interviews. The interviews went great. Then at the end, you had to do a team presentation with the other candidates for the position. The presentation was on the Oil Industry. So there were 1 or 2 guys in the group that knew A LOT about the Oil Industry because they previously did internships with the company or had a lot of knowledge about the industry. At the end, they were the ones that job the job. Waste of time. Also, Williams says you have opportunity to travel to other states like PA or TX if you get the job. You don't. Mainly all the Business-Related positions are at the Corporate Office in Tulsa. Expect to spend the rest of your life in Tulsa. Everyone there who I interviewed with had been working with Williams for 15-20+ years.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Williams (Houston, MS) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was invited through an agent, got accepted phone interview, and got passed through to 2nd round of in person interview, there were 2 people interviewing at the same time, one suppose to be project manager, and the other is the department manager lady, she kept on asking project management/budgetary/scheduling related questions, which is a function of project engineer/manager or planner. Which is totally none related to the job description of the post on their website, totally waste of time and gas. Also she has mentioned they want to hire someone to mentor the newbies, basically baby sit their interns or entry-level designers. Which was not mentioned in AD. I have more than 4 years of field experience and 5 years of EPC experience and posses P.E. license, never heard engineers main responsibility is the schedule progress report, and risk analysis. I have seen their AD is up looking for someone since Oct. 2013, and re-posted Mar. 2013, I doubt they will find anybody anytime soon.
