    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waco, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Halliburton (Waco, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Opened with asking what I knew about the company. Then moved to talking about myself, my experiences, and they asked a few questions about my resume. There was a brief behavioral section where they asked questions regarding decisions, teamwork, and other life experiences. The end was asking if I had any questions. Pretty chill and standard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Halliburton (Austin, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter that interviewed me was great and very helpful. The type of questions asked were behavioral and meant to judge how I would handle certain situations and also what I knew about myself. The interview was very laid back and fun. I received a verbal offer the next day.

    MWD Field Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Halliburton (Lafayette, LA).

    Interview

    The interview was barely even a conversation. They needed people badly. I was called into the room with three supervisors and they hardly asked any questions for most of the interview. It was a couple hours of basically describing the job to me and talking about safety, then a short tour of the facility with a future co-worker.

    Senior Technical Advisor - Wireline and Proferation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    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.

    Associate Technical Professional Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brighton, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Halliburton (Brighton, CO).

    Interview

    It took FOREVER. I kid you not, it was over 9 months from application to offer. I submitted an application through my university, then I had a ~30 min interview on campus, then I had an in person interview, then waited 3+ months for an offer. It was ridiculous.

    The in-person interview was a 2 day process. This was actually good, because it gave you an idea of how long the days are, and you also got to see a drilling rig or frac site and check out what it all looked like.

    Interview Questions

    • Name the equipment you saw today and its purpose. Why do you want this job? If you were offered a cement job in Vernal, or a coil job in Brighton, which would you choose? Give me an example of when you had to work with someone difficult in order to solve a project?   1 Answer
