I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum

Interview

I applied on school handshake and got an interview set up. There were 3 interviewers, one of them would write things down and the others would ask. There were quite many behavioral questions. The people were friendly. It was a 30 minute interview. I actually don’t know the outcome yet when I’m submitting it but there are no option for that on Glassdoor so I just click yes and I accepted:))
