    Interview

    Interacted through email. The people I interviewed with were great people that really tried to calm me down during the interview. The questions were difficult, but they accepted all of my answers very politely even if I didn't give the answer they were really searching for. They are definitely looking for a person that is the right fit for the company, so answer all questions honestly, and if they feel you are a good fit for the position they will offer you a job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Newfield Exploration in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied for the position through the career fair at my university. Two weeks later I received an email prompting me to schedule an on campus interview with them. The interview was an hour long and was comprised of two Newfield representatives and myself. One of the Newfield interviewers was a younger reservoir engineer who graduated from the university I attend. The other was a woman from the corporate headquarters who was in the HR department. Both were very friendly, personable interviewers and made it easy to feel comfortable and confident. The questions asked during the interview were predominately based off of my past internships from my resume, which they both had in front of them. There were no nonsensical behavioral questions and the interview went smoothly. Unfortunately, I did not get the job, but none the less, it was a pleasant experience.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked for specific details and duties of the my previous internships. Just have thorough knowledge of what you have done in the past.   Answer Question
