    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Swift Energy in September 2012.

    Interview

    I had two interviews with Swift but in two separate years.

    The first interview I received through getting to know the lead recruiter at a career fair dinner. I interviewed with one of the chief reservoir engineers and one of the younger engineers. I was mostly asked questions by the chief reservoir engineer. Questions were mostly conversational and the atmosphere and attitude made it very easy to talk. The questions were a little generic (i.e. Tell about a hard time in a group, what discipline are you interested in...). I followed up with a thank you email and the lead recruiter replied to me but I did not hear anything significant for a couple of months until I received a letter in the mail about being denied the offer.

    The second interview I received by seeing the same chief reservoir engineer again at the next year's career fair. He helped to get me through the new lead recruiter and onto the interview schedule. I was interviewed by the same chief reservoir engineer and a different young engineer. This time the young engineer asked me questions because I knew the senior engineer. Again, the interview was more conversational but the atmosphere was a little less day to talk under as the first interview but it still went well. This time I did not hear back from the company at all and I was extremely disappointed in the way it was handled.

    Even though I had a negative end to my experiences, I think I would interview again, given the opportunity because I know the company culture sounds wonderful and right up my alley.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Swift Energy (Houston, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Call with HR rep about experience and which department I thought my skills might be well suited for. HR rep talked through several of the options but was frank that many positions would be filled based on relationships with senior executives. Overall, there was little competence-based hiring for these positions.
