    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was a long and enduring activity that spanned from October through to the end of February the following year. I had to travel approximately 3000 miles for a one hour meeting. Where in the end i found out it was for position I didn't apply too! In other words, the wrong job. All correspondence had been documented with the job posting IDs, inclusive of spelling out the job title in the job application yet in the end i was interviewed for the wrong position. The experience was amaturish and I caution that anyone applying to one of these postings is to VALIDATE the job posting before wasting your time with folllow up documentation, travel, and expenses.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    It was a Multi-level interview. At first you will meet with the recruiters who will go through a standard process of vetting, then the manager of the department you will be working for will meet with you to ask you more in relation to the job you will be working, and it could be multiple representatives from the department. They will ask about what training and certifications you obtained as well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Saudi Aramco (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very brief, informal video interview w. people in Saudi. They were done w. me after 20 minutes of very casual, general questions. They came across as having zero enthusiasm for me and made no effort to make the position/department/company sound appealing.

    A couple days after the interview, the HR person in Houston said he'd be in touch in two weeks. After more than three weeks I'd heard nothing and withdrew my application. (I'm glad I waited, didn't spend all the time on the loooooooooooong application.)

    At the risk of stating the obvious, the people in Dhahran and the person in Houston struck me as rude, unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saudi Aramco.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume online, heard from the company 3 months later. Had 2 telephone interviews and 1 video-conference interview. The people that I spoke with were friendly and professional. Asked technical questions and reviewed my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviews went very well. Everybody was very friendly. After 3 interviews they then they sent me an application to fill out that requested the gender and ages of my dependents and my spouse's complete name, birthdate, and social security number. Completely illegal practice. There was an actual line on the application that stated unless every line on the application was filled out then it would be null and void and every line must be filled in order to apply for the job.   3 Answers

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Everything was done via email. The recruiting team was top notch. Unfortunately, I was completely dissatisfied with the two men from Saudi Arabia who Interviewed me. They kept mentioning my age (I look younger than I am). It was quite uncomfortable. Lucky for me I was offered the job I wanted (not this one).
