    Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anchorage, AK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Anchorage, AK) in March 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process took about 6-7 weeks including an onsite interview in Anchorage. The process was positive. Goals and needs were clearly laid out and relevant colleagues and managers were actively involved. This was what I would call the site-test following two in depth phone interviews which included several areas concerning past work history and relevant experience.

    Interview Questions

    • I really do not remember at this point. They were all pretty average behavioral or work specific questions.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips in September 2012.

    Interview

    I was still in school, getting a petroleum engineering degree, and COP came to recruit students for various internships. The interview for the internship struck me as very low-key and relaxed; the recruiters were friendly and gracious. The job offer was extended on the basis of my internship performance, so there were no further interviews.

    Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Houston, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I received a phone call about 2-3 weeks after applying for the position online. I was asked to join them for an onsite interview scheduled for one week later. The interview consisted of two short 30 minute interviews with a panel consisting of 2-3 people in each panel. Everyone was very friendly and the interview process was more like a conversation. They did ask some standard behavior questions to describe a time when you were in a difficult situation, etc. Each member of the panel shared their story and did most of the talking. I was able to respond and react to each of their comments and asked some follow up questions. One of the most comfortable and natural interviews I have ever been through. I received a brief phone call exactly one week after my interview that I would be receiving an email offer from them. This is a company that really feels like a family and I can't wait to get started.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you define good performance?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time where you worked with either an internal or external party to resolve an issue. What was the issue and how was it resolved?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation process takes place between an HR specialist and the hiring manager. They communicated my questions and counter offers to them directly and responded back in a very quick and timely manner. Overall, I believe there is room to negotiate but it might be difficult as its done indirectly through HR.

    Applied online and then haven't heard from them for a while. Finally I got an email asking about the availability for a phone interview.
