    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (College Station, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    30 min On-Campus interview. Talked with one recruiter in hallway before interview just a simple conversation, and once in the interview it was strictly behavioral type questions. Be sure to be prepared to answer any kind of question like this they can be difficult to come up with on the spot. The 2 recruiters I talked to were very interesting seem to love what they do.

    Interview

    Once you get selected for an interview, they first took us for dinner the night before the interview. Then at the interview they just asked the basic behavioral type of questions. It didnt really seem that they are interested or hiring at all. Not sure why. I havent heard back from them for 3 weeks now.

    Data Integration Contractor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Interviewed me once on the phone and then offered me the job. They usually have some immediate project need when they are hiring a contractor, so they would like you to start as soon as possible. If you want to be a full-time employee, it is easier to get on as a contractor, and then get hired on full time when they like you, than to get a full-time offer up front.
