    Petroleum Engineering Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Bureau of Land Management (Oklahoma City, OK) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First I went through the application process on usajobs.gov which was very time consuming. A couple of months after that I received a email that said that I was chosen for an interview. Prior to the interview I was sent a study guide of a math assessment and a video. The interview consisted of a handful of questions and was conducted over the phone. About a week after the phone interview I received another email that gave me a link to take the math assessment. I had a week to take the assessment and it covered 16 different questions that were on the study guide. This is as far as I have got so far so I do not have any more insight.

    Interview Questions

    • I cannot remember all of the questions that I was asked but I will do my best. I was asked what my short and long term goals were. I was asked how I handled managing a lot of different task at the same time. Other than that I cannot remember. They were all pretty basic and easy to answer though. The interviewer was really nice and easy to talk to. I asked a lot of questions and he was able to give me a lot of insight into the company.   Answer Question

    Law Enforcement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Bureau of Land Management.

    Interview

    Panel phone interview with two managers - general questions in STAR format. In my opinion, and I could be wrong but I do not necessarily feel that the people who interviewed me were very knowledgeable about the facets of the position which I was trying to obtain. They seemed genuine, just uninformed.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a very precise STAR Format question with extremely precise details and build-up and ended with what would you do. In hindsight, I do not believe the interviewers had any idea about the details which were included in the question, but were just reading it from a form.   Answer Question

    IT Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Bureau of Land Management.

    Interview

    One interview, via phone. A few basic/background questions, then some to gauge your ability to perform in a team environment. Interviewers were enthusiastic and personable, seemed knowledgeable on both the questions being asked and the responses. Last questions were highly technical, and I believe there was no single 'right answer' - they were looking for problem solving skills. Note that all of the interview panel members are in a field related to the job in question, and your technical answers will likely be discussed after the call.

    Interview Questions

    • "How would you deal with a personal offense committed against you in the workplace." (It felt pointed, as though it's been a problem before?) Caught me off guard.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiated start date only. Salary, moving expense and benefits were all locked.
