    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum (The Woodlands, TX).

    Interview

    Very laid back and personal. The process started with a dinner the night before on-campus interviews. The on-campus interviews were with 2 managers who asked mostly behavioral questions. Next step was an office visit that included a tour and two 45 minute interviews. Again, those were both conversational with a few behavioral questions. Each person I talked to was so nice and easy to get along with.

Questions were all behavioral.
