    Met with 2 drafting supervisors. They asked basic questions about drafting to make sure I knew basic drafting standards. Then I spend an hour or so with one of the main designers and asked him questions about his work. This was just to see what he thought about me. About 2 days later they offered the job to me.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    I was already a contractor there, so the interview was basically walking to the other department's manager's office one day. Nothing formal. Very insider. They "Posted the job externally for 24 hours because they had to for me to apply." There was no interest in accepting applications. Very back-doorsy. Good for me, but I felt like I cheated the system. The place really is "who you know". They also like to point to their nepotism clause if they don't like you and your spouse wants to apply.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    Obtained an interview on campus. Then onsite visit with exit interview. The first interview is more behavioral based. The exit interview is to see what your thoughts of the onsite visit were and to see how interested you are in getting a position. I recommend paying attention to details given during the onsite visit and mentioning some of the specifics during the exit interview.
