    I worked at Pioneer Natural Resources full-time (more than 3 years)


    Great people, benefits, pay and has a culture where everyone is involved.


    In Dallas the pace is pretty fast, so if you enjoy that then you'll fit right in.

    Interview Details

    First round interview on campus, second round on-site in Midland. The interview was very conversational, and they were more concerned about cultural fit than skills. The onboarding process is a bit of a mess. Some other candidates didn't receive an offer letter or know they were hired until after getting invited to an orientation. Many candidates never heard back at all. Some hiring managers make mistakes, such as promising sponsorship to international candidates and then withdrawing the promise after the orientation session.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were very easy with the intent to learn about cultural fit.   Answer Question

Oil and gas explorer Pioneer Natural Resources' frontier is not in the Western prairies, but below them, and below the Rocky Mountains, the Midcontinent, West Texas, South Texas, and elsewhere. The large independent exploration and production company reported proved reserves of 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent in 2010. The vast majority of the company's reserves are found within the US (including in Alaska, where the company was the first independent explorer to produce from a North Slope oilfield), but Pioneer also explores for and produces oil and gas in South Africa.
