    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Wood Group Mustang in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very ad hoc - no structure. The interviewers were always busy. Drove to the interview several times only to be told that the interview was cancelled. No coordination and they did not even apologize or make amends. Very smug - take interviewee for granted.

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt that there was too much politics. Too many cancelled interview appointments when I reached there - points to lack of good culture

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Wood Group Mustang.

    Interview Details

    Referral by existing employee who was well respected. Initial interview was casual. No technical questions or questions regarding work experience. Mustang values the opinion of existing employees who are good performers and referred candidates are not as thoroughly vetted as someone who submitted a resume through a job board or who is an unknown.

    Facility Engineer Interview

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

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Wood Group Mustang in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Knew a friend who worked at Mustang, he gave me the initial recommendation. The interviews are incredibly casual. Most times if you get an interview with a department manager you probably will get the job. Being a TAM grad is a big bonus, and will help out alot.

    Interview Questions
    • Two managers asked me where I wanted to be in 5 years (technical versus business level) and they had completely opposite expectations for the right answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None. I tried asking for a sign on bonus, but the contract they send you is what you will get.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Wood Group Mustang in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    An employee of the company contacted my university advisor who spread the information to interested students. I was asked to come in for a face-to-face interview, but scheduled for a phone interview first to see if it was a good fit and was sold on the job opportunity. I was wiling to relocate on my own expense for the position (and even meet up in person for the next round if needed), but did not end up progressing to the next round/offer stage. Oh well, their loss!

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were behavioral-interviewed based, but the conversation flowed both ways which was nice.   Answer Question

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Wood Group Mustang in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    An employee referral landed me an interview with 2 mechanical engineering managers.

    I was able to interact with a lot of other engineers at the company through my contact there, and I really enjoyed the experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The culture was very relaxed, but you could tell there was a lot of hard work put in by everyone.

    The interview was with both managers at once. I felt very relaxed the whole time. They were very personable and joking with me for parts of the interview. Multiple times I got them rambling about different topics. Unfortunately, at the time they did not have a position available or I believe I would have received an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unexpected. A couple questions I think the managers found online as suggested interview questions like "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"   Answer Question

    Face to face questioning style. Interviewer was in business casual and polite. Mostly just an interview to get to know my personality and see what kind of experience I have had.
