    Average Interview

    Interview

    I did not no apply through my campus recruiting. I applied through Indeed.com. I heard back from them about 2 weeks later and then I was scheduled for an online prerecorded interview. I completed the interview in about 30 minutes. I then waited for about two more weeks and then I got a phone call from their HR representative and then I had a phone interview and right after the interview I got the offer from Marathon.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Marathon Oil.

    Interview

    I only had one interview and I got cut after that so I don't know if there were multiple or not. The interview was over the phone and they put me on speaker phone with three employees who took turns asking me questions. The employees were a senior reservoir engineer, petrophysicist, and human relations. They didn't ask any behavioral questions. They asked about things I had on my resume.

    Software Tester Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marathon Oil (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I was asked several situational questions and some very generic questions about technology. The interview was done by two people. This was after my initial interview with the staffing company I would be contracted to Marathon through. Their mood was serious and they didn't seem to know what they should ask me. I had thought of so many other questions that would be better suited for the job they were going to hire me for, yet they stuck to very generalized subjects and questions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marathon Oil.

    Interview

    online interview. very informal. I did not like that you had to look at yourself and that you had only once chance yo record yourself. But the internship was a great experience. It was for an internship in Houston. Interns get their own office which is a great perk.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marathon Oil (Robinson, IL) in February 2010.

    Interview

    it was interesting because they fly you out to Houston, TX to do the interview. it is a little nerve racking because when you are in the city you don't really get to enjoy your surroundings. but you will meet alot of excellent candidates and make some great friends.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marathon Oil (Houston, TX) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The initial meeting with two representatives from the company and subsequent discussion led to a sit down interview where I was made to feel extremely comfortable and important. This proved to be one of the most pleasant and enjoyable interview experiences I have ever had. I was made to feel welcomed rather than judged, which allowed me to be more honest and better describe my qualifications.
