    IT Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nabors Industries.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a Sr PM who was ok. He did most of the talking about himself and didn't really ask many questions. Then after he was finished he left the room and I heard him and another individual speaking loudly , as in a heated arguement, then an Indian woman came in and she introduced herself as the Sr Director. She said that she had to "straighten out"the guy I just intrviewed with because he was behind schedule on his projects. One scary place. I would not want to work there. They seemed very unprofessional. The indian woman seemed like she was not interested in conducting the interview. This was a waste of time.
    One thing the 1st guy mentioned was that they've been through 4 - IT Directors in the last 3 years. and that the Sr Director looks to blame everyone for her mistakes. Sounds like a snake pit. Very bad and uncomfortable experience.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Nabors Industries (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    It took HR approximately 4 months to contact me for an interview. The interview was very relaxed and not much was discussed about technical abilities. More was discussed about if my availability was flexible. I was offered a position almost a month later with surprisingly generous compensation package so I took it.

    Interview

    After applying for the Entry-Level Mechanical Engineering position, they flew me down to Houston to let me know they would not be hiring after the drop in oil prices. They were very frank during the interview, with very little BS HR related questions. They were adamant about knowing why I wanted to work for Nabors.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nabors Industries in June 2014.

    Interview

    My interview at Nabors was a panel interview which included five managers. Initially I was told there would be one or two hiring managers in the interview and I was surprised to see all five managers sitting around the conference table. At first it seemed like an interrogation, but I just rolled with it and it was a positive experience.
