    Negative Experience
    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    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).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Saudi Aramco (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed twice.

    First time the team was very disorganized and I was shifted from room to room while they tried to determine "fit". People who interviewed me had no idea who I was or even a copy of my resume. Saudi just read his phone throughout. No offer from that one - hardly a surprise.

    Second interview went very smoothly: focused, good conversation and to the point. I was told right there that an offer would come.

    You should know how you can add value and explain how they will benefit. Understand the history of the company, have knowledge of the country and its customs. You should also try to network with people who work there. I contacted them and they were quick to connect, but did not continue when I asked them follow-up questions.
