    Easy Interview

    Application

    Network Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bartlesville, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Bartlesville, OK).

    Interview

    stupid easy, when interviewing for a technical role and you are competent in your skills you will probably be smarter than the interviewer. There are some smart people in this company but more often than not they aren't the ones making the decisions for hiring. Unfortunately you will find too many that are not competent for the reason mentioned above, the hiring managers probably don't know anything about the position you are interviewing for. Easy to stand out but frustrating when you realize you will not get any help from half your coworkers in the future.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The only thing I asked for was to delay my start date to let my children finish the school year where they were, I asked for an extra 30 days. They wanted me to start earlier but I told them that was the deal, take it or leave it.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavorial interview questions; they are using the STAR method. A lot of situational questions and questions about how you are as a person.

    Negotiation

    No need for negotiation. The offer extended was more than I ever thought I could receive for an entry level position. Very pleased with the benefits and compensation.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    They interviewed on campus, there was one HR person and one from the Supply Chain team. I felt like they cared little about my skills (they already had my resume on hand), but they cared a lot about my social skills, asking questions such as a conflict I have solved while on a team or a challenge I have overcome. I was really displeased that they let me know about the negative result only after about 4 weeks even though they said it would take less than one. My friend, who got accepted, did not enjoy the internship and turned down their offer.

    Interview Questions

    • What is a struggle you have overcome? Have you worked in a team before? How have you solved some conflict situations in a team?   Answer Question
