    Category Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Williams (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    The interview process started with basic phone screen followed by a video interview. I was supposed to record answers to three questions. Each answer was supposed to be no longer than three minutes with three attempts for each answer.

    Shortly thereafter, I was invited for an in-person on-site interview. It was supposed to be conducted by a hiring manager and two of his direct reports. One of the direct reports didn't participate because something was going on. The interview lasted for one hour and was the shallowest interview I have ever had. I had an impression that neither of the individuals were comfortable interviewing.

    Shortly after the on-site interview, I received an offer and had several conversations with the hiring manager trying to get more clarity about the position, the future of the department, work environment, etc. I attempted to negotiate the offer with the hiring manager, but he said that "for his sake and for the sake of hist team" he could not improve the offer. At the end, not a single item of the offer was improved and I declined.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Williams (Tulsa, OK) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Received a link and instructions to do an online recorded interview. Questions were straightforward and standard for interviews. It was odd answering questions and recording myself but you are allowed to go back once or twice to re-record if things didn't go well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Williams (Tulsa, OK) in November 2015.

    Interview

    They use an online interview software, where you record yourself answering a few questions. There are three tries for about ten questions. Once you have submitted this, it could take up to a month to hear back. After the recorded interview, they did a phone interview. Very low key, mainly behavioral questions. Safety is one of William's key values. If the interviewer does not mention safety, I am sure they would be impressed if you brought it up. The interesting thing about the interview process for interns is that they do a general intern interview. Typically the people that conduct your interview will not be your manager. Williams hires on a large group of interns and then sends a questionnaire after you are hired to help select your placement.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Williams (Tulsa, OK) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Phone Call and In-Person Interview

    This was for the Business Analyst (Professional Development) Program.

    The Phone Interview was easy. They basically said you didn't need to know anything about the industry. They were looking for recent graduates who wanted to learn about the industry. A day later, I got a phone call for me to come to an in-person interview. I was out of state, so they did provide travel for me to interview. When I got there, it was like 5 hours of interviews. The interviews went great. Then at the end, you had to do a team presentation with the other candidates for the position. The presentation was on the Oil Industry. So there were 1 or 2 guys in the group that knew A LOT about the Oil Industry because they previously did internships with the company or had a lot of knowledge about the industry. At the end, they were the ones that job the job. Waste of time.

    Also, Williams says you have opportunity to travel to other states like PA or TX if you get the job. You don't. Mainly all the Business-Related positions are at the Corporate Office in Tulsa. Expect to spend the rest of your life in Tulsa. Everyone there who I interviewed with had been working with Williams for 15-20+ years.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Williams (Tulsa, OK) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was first required to submit an application online along with my resume. I then spoke with someone from HR who works with Talent Acquisition to make sure that they bring the best candidates in for the open position for interviews.

    The next step was for me to conduct a phone interview with my would-be boss as well as his supervisor. Once they determined it was worth bringing me on site, I went to corporate headquarters and performed an in-person interview.

    After that, it was a discussion between them and the HR department as to whether they offered me a position.

    Interview Questions

    • What is my experience within IT?
      How do you handle relationships with external customers/those you serve?

    Professional Business Development Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Williams (Tulsa, OK) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was offered an interview through the Oklahoma State University's Hire OSU Grads Website.

    The minimum GPA allowed was a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale to be considered. They required a resume, cover letter, transcript, and a document for references.

    I was offered an interview on the second week of February and interviewed with them on the 16th of February at OSU's Stillwater campus.

    It was a great interview! Though I did not receive an offer, the interviewers were very nice and I felt like I could be myself.

    I do warn anyone who interviews with them to be fully prepared about their understanding of Williams. They asked a lot of questions about if I knew Williams past company history and what they do today. So just be fully prepared for any and all questions. The interview lasted approximately 45 minutes.
