    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oceaneering International.

    Interview

    It was simple. There were not any technical questions. Most of the interview was like a conversation. The interview probably lasted about 1 hour. The employer wants to make sure you will be happy with company and the environment of place.

    Accounting Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oceaneering International.

    Interview

    First a recruiter called me and asked why I was looking for a job, then she set up the interview. I met with a manager and he asked me a couple questions. I don't think it took him long to decide I was not the right for the position because the interview was about 15 minutes. He claimed he had another meeting. He also made a lot of comments how some of the people that work there are not very nice and you need thick skin.

    Senior Technical Role Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oceaneering International.

    Interview

    Very dysfunctional, unorganized and partly chaotic interview process [red flag]. Recruiter didn't even clarify specifics on which language they would test against. Recruiter says "we're professional here", along with one senior level employee saying the identical phrase (when they announce that their professional, it's the opposite) [red flag]. I studied both languages mentioned, leaning more towards one particular coding language. In the technical phone interview, an immediate technical coding assessment was expected (as mentioned by the recruiter), yet we did a > 1 hour long discussion of my background, introductions, details about the role, high details about all of my experiences with data science (which was taxing/exhausting) [red flag]. After, they presented several coding questions with Collabedit that they expected you to complete in a live demo. I immediately backed off and said I'm either taking these coding exercises home or dismiss my application. They hesitated and seemed like they wanted me in their group, so they transferred it to a take-home coding exercise. The questions disappeared in the Collabedit link (luckily I copied them to Word during the interview day), although I contacted the recruiter about this ridiculous situation. I completed all 4 questions (any 2 were required) and even fixed one finicky code block on-time. I received a standard rejection email with no feedback 2 days later. I didn't even ask for feedback because it was too ridiculous. I'm certainly glad they rejected.

    Two senior employees on the technical interview, one was completely incompetent and reading from pieces of paper/Googling answers, the other was completely competent in relational databases. It's obvious the weak employee was "hiding" behind the capable employee here (I've seen this before). It was obvious I was more capable in technical abilities across several disciples than the weak senior employee who had power over the capable senior employee. The weaker employee gave strange comments in the early part of the phone call as well. Ridiculous interfacing with these two people.

    Overall, a horrible interview and it would annoy any candidate. It reflects these poor reviews about this company, particularly in the San Diego office. They do lie about their "fast-paced" environment - again the opposite. This company is removing benefits from their system with time. Keeping honest with the interview doesn't work with this company (they have trust problems as well). Many red flags waving.

    The interview consisted of having a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager. I thought it was very straightforward and succinct, nothing else was necessary. Eye contact helped make the interview more effective.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Oceaneering International.

    Interview

    It was super easy, and also incredibly nepotistic. Panel of 3-4 people, and I pretty much was offered the job on the spot. All older white men, incredibly not diverse, which should have been a red flag from the get go.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oceaneering International (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The process was good, I was invited onsite for a panel interview. I was called a couple of weeks after by the recruiter stating that I did not have the required experience. I wish I was told this before being asked for an interview onsite.
