    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview then a team interview.

    My peers were great but the hiring manager and business head seemed skeptical. In reality, I didn't like the business head and found out she didn't last. I'm happy my offer was cancelled in the end.

    I tried applying for another job 2 years later but I could never get their website to work.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hess Corporation in September 2014.

    Interview

    I went to an on-campus information session that was offered through my college and I got my interview by talking to them afterwards. There was a group of Hess employees conducting the interviews, half engineers, half HR. My experience was very negative, the engineers were very aggressive and rude, the junior one was CHECKING HIS PHONE during the interview and the senior did not seem to notice/care. I was told to expect a phone call the week after the interview, which never materialized, and I never received any communications from Hess after that.

    Geology Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Dropped of my resume at their booth at the AAPG Student Expo. They called that evening to set up an interview the next morning. The interview was with a panel of 2 employees. They mostly asked the stereotypical HR questions which provide no significance or insight into the candidate, in my opinion. I was fairly ready for them though and just gave my pre-rehearsed answers. Didn't talk to me much about science. Never heard back from them that I didn't get the internship. Just radio silence.

    Interview Questions

    • Here at Hess we are very committed to employee safety. Can you describe a time where you recognized a potentially dangerous situation and acted in an appropriate manner to promote health and safety?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I was emailed by a recruiter about 4 months after I initially applied on the Hess website. No phone interview. The recruit immediately set up a face to face with the hiring managers. I interviewed with 3 managers at separate times in a 2 hour window. Each person was allotted ~30 minutes per the interview schedule. Most questions were pretty straight forward and were related mainly to my past experience. Not many of the usual behavioral questions. I was told to expect to hear something in 2-3 weeks. I'm still within that period so I don't have an offer yet.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really tricky. I was surprised by the lack of difficult questions.   Answer Question
