    Interview

    Phone interview, about 40 mins, lots of questions about C#, if you know about this language, it shouldn't be too difficult. However, I'm not the one who knows C#. So I failed that interview.

    Electronics Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paso Robles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Scientific Drilling (Paso Robles, CA).

    Interview

    Quite a messy operation there. HR is out of touch with the needs and desires of those they are trying to fill jobs for. They work off a structured template of money and experience and would rather leave a position open for years than give someone a chance to grow into the job. Run from their Houston office which dictates structure and treats new employees like a commodity. Cold and heartless and incompetent at the same time.

    Reasons for Declining

    Poor communication with HR and never felt comfortable with the company culture. It went from a family operation to an insulated corporate giant run by human robots without any heart or passion.

    Interview

    I applied, interviewed and got hired within a month. The interview was about an hour long and a little nerve racking. The questions they asked weren't difficult to answer. It was a relaxed setting. They showed me around a little bit. Managers and supervisors were the ones interviewing me, not someone from HR.

    Interview

    Two person interview, somewhat informal. Had to answer questions regarding development of document control system, and oil field manuals. Was informed that the plan was to take approx 2 to 3 years to complete so there were no guarantees of long term employment. Well at least they are honest.
