    Supply Chain Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Easy and to the point. The job description was very generic, so do prepare to ask a lot of job related questions. The same title can have different job roles. Arrive early if you are going to the corporate office, it is lot of walking and you can get lost easily.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Questions were pretty basic; first interview was pretty much scripted, nothing out of the ordinary. The second interview was much easier--it was just a conversation with the hiring manager. He in particular made me very comfortable. Eventually I was involved with hiring new people as well, and was handed the same old worthless, scripted questions to ask. I immediately through it in the trash and asked what I wanted to ask, to ensure the candidate was a good fit.

    Negotiation

    Halliburton will always (like any large corporation), try to low-ball you. For any given position, they're likely to go 1-2% below market value.

    There was a total of 7 interviews including an presentation of my thesis research. The presentation was attended by the interviewers. The presentation was the main part of the selection process.

However, during the personal interviews, I was asked about the basics of electromagnetic theory and also whether I had rudimentary knowledge about oil wells.
