    Staff Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HighMount Exploration (Oklahoma City, OK) in October 2012.

    Interview

    There is not much to say regarding the hiring and interview process. From inside the company it seems as if you can breathe they will give you a job.

    Reasons for Declining

    The culture there did not feel right. It seemed as if the employees were happy on the surface but underneath held contempt for each other or the company.

    Communications Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HighMount Exploration (Houston, TX) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Began with a phone interview, it went very well. The 1:1 interviews were very positive, and I had a great energy with the interviewers (Two 1:1 interviews). They were forgiving of my mistakes and understood I was new to the corp. environment, made me feel comfortable, recognized my efforts from the beginning.

    The only problem is that they took so long to accept me. I can understand maybe one week, but they kept me strung for quite a while. Once I finally called to find out their final decision, they again said they'd call me back. I had to continue my job search just in case, so I picked up a part time to handle pending expenses. Once they'd accepted me, I told them I'd like to start ASAP, and they said that that was great, and they'd let me know. They kept me waiting about a month just to start, without ever giving me an official start date. So I continued with my part time, thank heavens I had that, because for them to just keep me waiting wasn't right. If they had just said that they'd like to start me with the first pay period of the new year, I would have understood, but to just string me along like that wasn't cool.

    In the end, my experience here has been positive so far, and I look forward to continue growing in more directions than I'd anticipated when I'd graduated. Thanks, HighMount!

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing unexpected; my interviewers were very social beings, and enjoyed talking.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Yes, I was able to negotiate, although I was clumsy! : ) As an intern, you don't get benefits, and the title, "Intern" allows for less pay. I was going to be getting paid $5 more per hour at my other part time, as they'd hired me as a beginning professional designer. But I wanted the corp. and growth experience, so for me it was worth the effort and pay drop. However, $5 less/hour is quite a drop, so I was able to ask for pay between $20-$25/hour. They accepted me at $23/hour, and so I'm getting only $2 less/hour than I was at my part time. That's a good start for a carreer, in my opinion.

    As a fresher to the corp. world, I would just advise that, especially as a female, you never pass up negotiations. It's definately a skill to be learned, and as you learn it, you will benefit in the future, for asking for pay raises, bonuses, and other negotiations. There are a couple ladies here that didn't learn to be assertive in this manner and now regret it, but also can't muster the courage to do it even now. Men are expected to be able to do this, and don't have as much pressure when they do it, so Ladies, you gotta have some courage! Learn your negotiations!!
