    Maintenance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bay City, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Tenaris (Bay City, TX).

    Interview

    Very positive and fast process overall. I applied to a position online and was contacted by a company recruiter the next day. I completed an initial interview at Tenaris the same week and a follow-up interview the next week. I received and accepted an offer the following week. Overall process from application to start date was less than a month. The interviews were somewhat challenging. The interviewers asked simple questions about my experience, but then challenged most of the points I made (for example: I don't see how experience XX is relevant to what we do here). I don't know if that is the style of many of the personnel with the company, or just the hiring manager I interviewed with, but I enjoyed the opportunity to defend my background and explain why I would be a good fit for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tenaris (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I met Tenaris at my university's career fair. The first step was to take a Numerical Reasonings test, which was fairly difficult. If you passed, you entered the next stage which was the group interview. The interview consists of Legos, instead of traditional interview questions, and then you got put in a group with a scenario and you have to present your case.

    First I took an online test that was analyzing a bunch of charts. It was hard, but I made it through. I don't know how they score it.

    It was a normal interview process. I had 3 managers that sat in on the interview. They asked questions regarding my experience, background and skill level. The questions were those typical of an interview.

    Global Trainee Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tenaris in March 2016.

    Interview

    A lot of tests with a lot of people, sort of working on elimination and competing against others there. Kind of awkward when they tell people to leave and everyone in the room knows what is happening. People seem friendly and cut-throat at the same time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tenaris (Houston, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was interesting, we were given a set of legos to describe our dream job. Then a case study followed by some QA (in group). Overall the interview was not bad at all, but I didn't like the recruitment process. The took long to answer emails, I was supposed to another interview and they never emailed back to confirm it, even though they scheduled before I left. I emailed them a couple of weeks after that and they said they decided not to hire, but they never bothered to let us know. Something I definitely not appreciate.
