    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 an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Halliburton (Carrollton, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview first. Asked basic questions about engineering, school experience, projects and expectations from a job. I did about 10% of the talking, my interviewer did the other 90% explaining what the job entailed.
    Next was a lunch interview. it was a rehash of the phone interview - they were looking for social skills and communication skills. Asked more questions concerning standards compliance, writing standards, and verified my expectations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Halliburton (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Came in as contractor. Took one face-to-face meeting and was offered the position on the same day. Started one week later.

    Hired on as fulltime later, the process of converting to employee took nearly 6 months. Kind of ridiculous.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. Just asked about tools/technology in my field that relates to my job. Standard interview question like: what are your strength and weaknesses, when did you get your certification, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Rate was pre-negotiated before the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Halliburton (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Entire process took about 1 month. 2 rounds of interview. 1 interview with local manager and 1 teleconference interview with US manager. Interview with managers were pretty fast but HR took some time to prepare for the package and were quite unwilling to negotiate.

    Interview Questions

    • Both interviews were simple and straightforward. Asking about your background/experience to find out if you have relevant experience for the position. Local manager also described some of the challenges involved in the position and asked for your opinion on how you would overcome the challenges.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiation, even though I didn't ask for very high pay. I would advise to write much higher expected pay and let them negotiate down. Also, bear in mind that there is no bonus for technology department.
