    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hess Corporation.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I meet with the HR person who asked basic questions. Then meet with the IT manager and a VP (via video conference) based in Houstin. Overall not impressed and the tone of the questions were negative and nothing technical was asked. And, they asked several illegal interview questions about my family status.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hess Corporation.

    Interview

    Found the job posting on my schools career website and applied through there. Was contacted and invited to a dinner when they were in town for a career fair the night before interviews. The dinner was used as a chance to learn more about the company and ask all your typical questions that you would normally ask during an interview to make the interview more meaningful. The recruiters were awesome and very easy to talk to.

    The actual interview was two, 30 min, 2 on 1 interviews back to back. Typical on-campus interview.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hess Corporation (Tempe, AZ) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy to talk to the Hess representatives. Had dinner before the interview, so I felt comfortable talking in the interview process. The representatives were not just HR people, they were actual Supply Chain employees, which helped us to understand what we could potentially be doing. Very open to answer questions and help us to understand Hess before we interviewed with them.

    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
