    Senior Technical Advisor - Wireline and Proferation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and within an hour I had a response from HR to setup a pre-screen. After the pre-screen I had a phone interview 2 days later. The opportunity was awesome and sounded right up my alley of what I current did. The positions was put on hold for 2 months due to the oil crash. Then it was opened again. Went to the campus did a Panel interview and did a presentation on my background and technical skills as they can help the company. Then had 4 face to face interviews.
    Overall the team was awesome and really knowledgeable and had a passion to work! I had never seen such good chemistry just in the interview with the group.

    Unfortunately since oil prices were still low, when the hiring manager went to his boss for a signature to bring me on, he was rejected. It was unfortunate, but it will not stop me from pursuing them again in the future.

    Category Manager - Travel and Real Estate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    HR Advisor emailed me based on my LinkedIn profile (Was a passive candidate as I am currently employed and not looking for employment.) Met with the Hiring Manager (HM) and other stake holders. Initially, everyone appeared to be nice and I had some great discussions. Overall culture appeared to be a fit. 1st red flag, however, was when HM asked me about personal things (family) during the 1st interview, which I told him was illegal. Entire process took 2.5 months - which seemed WAY too long. 2nd red glad was when HM set up an appointment to give me an offer and was a "no show" and I didn't hear back for 1.5 business days. Finally they gave me a verbal offer and discontinued talks after HM told me I was not being transparent (I refused to provide him current compensation at my company, but was willing to provide a range).

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I based my decision on the red flags I perceived during the interview process and how I was treated by the Hiring Manager during the interviews and follow up discussions.

    Associate Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The main lobby was warm. The AC couldn't keep up while I waited an extra 20 minutes for my interview. As soon as the interview started, I felt like I was in trouble. I was sent here by a recruiter to fill a temp position. I understood it to be entry level for a new graduate. However the interviewer wanted someone who had experience with pre-credits, SAP, and actually working in the general ledger. I don't have that experience yet, so after fumbling through an answer, I admitted that I expected to gain that experience through this position, not already have it.
