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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pioneer Natural Resources.

    Interview Details

    The interview felt extremely rushed. There was HR man and a young engineer. The questions would have been simply about my resume but the HR man kept getting side tracked and would talk to the engineer about unrelated topics while I sat and watched. I was asked a question about my work experience but the man began talking to the engineer about something else again. He then tried wrapping up the interview before I could even answer the question. Not very professional at all.

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.
