    I worked at Denbury Resources as an intern (less than an year)


    -Well compensated to handle large projects.
    -Denbury puts a lot of trust in their engineers to make huge decisions.
    -Less hoops to jump through as opposed to larger companies where you feel restricted in your decision making and aren't able to accomplish as much.
    -CO2 EOR leads to really challenging engineering which yields very few dull days.


    There seems to be a disconnect with the company's large financial decisions and their employees. Employees do not understand the real reasons behind these plans making it harder to stand behind the company and trust those making the decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a more thorough finance presentation for those who may not understand this side of things. This will gain more trust and grow a more positive & healthy atmosphere.

    Engineering Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Denbury Resources.

    Interview Details

    I landed an interview from our university career center and also from speaking to them at the career fair. I made sure to stay in contact with their lead HR recruiter who was very nice but was sometimes slow to responding to emails. The interview was conducted on campus by two engineers. They mostly asked me questions based on my experience and involvement listed on my resume. There was only a few behavioral questions. The recruiters were very friendly but professional. After the interview, I went into the next room and got to speak with the HR lady who answered any additional questions I had and also asked about job preferences.
