    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum.

    It was a very professional interview with two managers in the room. There were many questions specific to expected job duties and past experience within the industry. Everyone was polite, professional and easy to talk to. Follow up took several days but they told me up front that would be the case.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with two geologists at the AAPG Student Expo. Neither geologist looked liked they wanted to be there. They asked me very specific questions about my previous work/internship experiences. They wanted to know details rather than an overall summary of my previous work/internship experiences. Also I noticed the two interviewers dosing off during the interview. It was early in the morning but their lack of attention made the situation difficult. Also the interviewers were very stern.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no general questions. All questions were individualized and specific to my resume.   Answer Question
