    Pros

    Weatherford is pretty good about looking out for their people. The benefits are good and management is usually available if you need to speak with them.

    Cons

    grueling schedule. Some of their programs and reporting seem overly complicated. They tend to sugar-coat the job when you sign on by emphasizing pay.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received a call for interview within a week. Had an in person interview with two managers that lasted around 3 hours. After interview I was told what the next step in the process would be and I was given a tour of the facility.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly behavioral questions. They presented several work scenarios and asked how I would respond to them. Did not ask much about academic background, in fact they made it a point to let me know that they weren't going to ask about my grades. I was asked about things that were on my resume, like projects, volunteer work and internships. Only question that threw me off was when they asked me why I chose to go to the school I went to.   Answer Question
