Drilling Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Houston, TX).

Interview

It was a decent interview, typical shuffle between different managers and future work colleagues. I was able to ask questions very candidly and be open.

The questions that managers had were rather insightful, I was surprised at the personal nature of questions that were sometimes asked (showed what I thought was a caring spirit)

Interview Questions

  • There were no technical questions. They know your experience and were more interested in who you were rather than what you knew.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in March 2008.

    Interview

    Very intimidating, Behavioral interview questions will be more pointed, more probing and more specific than traditional interview questions:

    Give an example of an occasion when you used logic to solve a problem.
    Give an example of a goal you reached and tell me how you achieved it.
    Describe a decision you made that was unpopular and how you handled implementing it.
    Have you gone above and beyond the call of duty? If so, how?
    What do you do when your schedule is interrupted? Give an example of how you handle it.
    Have you had to convince a team to work on a project they weren't thrilled about? How did you do it?
    Have you handled a difficult situation with a co-worker? How?
    Tell me about how you worked effectively under pressure.
    Follow-up questions will also be detailed. You may be asked what you did, what you said, how you reacted or how you felt.
