    Corporate Security/Investigations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Received a telephone call stating that they were with BHP Billiton in Houston Texas and that they didn't want to waste my time or theirs so she wanted to ask me a question. She asked my current salary. I gave her my current salary but made it clear that I would be willing to accept less if given the opportunity as my main interest was to work for a quality company like BHP. I later received an email stating that they decided not to consider me. No reason given although I was more than qualified for the position after working as a Special Agent/Federal Criminal Investigator for over15 years. I feel I was not considered due to my current salary and they ignored the offer to work for less.

    I had an interview during my study in business school. The process was long and it was difficult to schedule interview time at convenient time.
