    Electronics Technician Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Seadrill (Houston, TX) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Very rudimentary. Electrical questions like Ohm's law, two types of transformers, etc. I spent weeks rehashing AC and Electronic Theory and frankly felt disgusted that I had wasted so much time on so simple of an interview. The quality of some of the new hires reflects this. For a job that pays so much in a area that can be so detrimental to the safety and up time on a drilling rig, I would expect serious attention to be paid to the quality of employees selected for the position instead of a "let them sink, or let them swim" attitude. Such a sloppy process must take its toll monetarily on a business. I can assure you it takes it's toll with the co-workers of those employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Seadrill (Houston, TX) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Contacted through LinkedIn, did a phone interview which consisted of very standard questions (no strength/weakness, though). Next were some online tests, mostly simple, except the math portion. I don't think they valued the math portion highly, though. Then I did a group interview with individual interviews with HR and a technician. Neither were very difficult, and everyone was very polite.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Seadrill.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a third party recruiter with much back.m & forth until the phone screen with an He Manager was set up. The hr manager asked me what my benefits package is when I told He requirements, she aggressively asked “if we were to make you an offer would you negotiate and counter offer with you current company” which to me sounded like that is why the role had been open for so long. They sent me a 3 part assessment test following that. DdI not hear anything for another month and a half when I was dispositioned.
