    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online after seeing the opportunity at a career fair. The recruiters sold me on the opportunity to travel parts of the country with the ability to switch to other parts of the country/world after a year. Contacted by a recruiter a few weeks after to go in for an interview. Interview consisted of 10+ candidates and about 4-6 interviewers. A group tour of the facilities and Q/A session. Process was straight forward, as they were interested in your school work and any/all past work experience. Work with hand tools seemed to be just as important as being able to operate a computer. Having people skills/ability to adapt to high pressure situations was also stressed as being an important characteristic of an individual that will succeed.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever worked with any hand tools or electrical equipment?   1 Answer
    • How willing are you to travel and be away from your friends and family?   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation unless you have previous experience in the oil field, especially with being an MWD previously. Salary and "Day Rates" are set in stone but subject to change. Raises are determined by individual effort and are knowledge/experience based. The faster you want to learn, the faster you are able to be promoted. I suggest that you consider other options before you say yes. You will be traveling 100% of the time and possibly away from home for months on end. Is the experience worth it? Yes. Will you be compensated well? Yes. What it breaks down is how much you are willing to learn and in how much time. The more you put into this the faster you will get out of it.
