    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum (The Woodlands, TX).

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum in The Woodlands, TX. The process was very long and drawn out. From application to the first phone interview was 4 months. One month later was the face to face interview. No follow up phone call to notify if I did not get the position. I emailed the recruiter two weeks after the interview to check the status of the position and she stated a letter would be sent out in the event that I was not offered the position. That letter never came either.
