Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Conroe, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Oilwell Varco (Conroe, TX) in October 2015.

Interview

Interview process was very easy and relaxing. I had the opportunity to meet with the hiring management boss who was very nice and open. I also interview with the sales managers which provide some great insight on how the department operation process work together. Got an overview of their software product and awesome facility. Also met with other developers. The hiring manager did not ask too many difficult technical questions.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Oilwell Varco (Houston, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Went through a consulting company. Had 2 interviews with the hiring manager. Was offered the position right at the end of the 2nd interview. On the 1st interview, I was asked if I knew a certain language which I didn't and told them that I am very quick learner. After talking to me, the hiring manager gave me a URL for a tutorial and asked me to review and come back in a week to see how much I learned. I told my recruiter that I wanted to come back in 4 days. After I came back in 4 days I was able to demo the application that I created and the hiring manager was very happy with my performance.

    Interview

    Skype interview on what would become my department manager. That was it. Interview was a lot about cultural fit, and somewhat about experience and future objectives. They also asked for references and later I was contacted by HR with the offer, which was above my expectation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Oilwell Varco (Leduc, AB (Canada)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I applied to their online application. I got a phone call from the manager after about two weeks and he asked me to come for the interview. The interview panel had 3 senior software engineers (including the manager, no HR people). First, they asked some personal and behavioral question (where did I study, which courses I have taken, my projects, thesis, my previous experience, my goal etc.) then there was a short skill test where I had to answer a few programming / Db questions. I only had to give the algorithm for the programming questions and only one was really tricky. I got an offer in 7days.
