    Interview

    The interview started with one of the company's offshore(not very sure of his job title, but definitely not HR person) who immediately got me into the swing boat of the company; drilling me to know how seriously i had taken the safety induction that visitors are given upon entering the office premises.

    I also had an opportunity to meet with an OIM who also did his share of the quizzing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Transocean (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I had 1 phone interview with a Human Resources representative and 1 in person with engineers from the company. They were very open and honest interviews and I felt very comfortable which is not usually the case. They were interviewing me to see who I was as a person rather than to see how I operated under pressure.
