    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wood Group (Houston, TX) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through other source and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Wood Group in September 2013.

    Interview Details – Position applied for was an internal auditor position based in Houston, Texas. The primary offices for internal audit are in Aberdeen.

    Contacted through LinkedIn by Aberdeen based HR recruiters. Had an initial interview phone interview with HR lasting about 1 hour. Next i was scheduled for an interview with a peer. This interview lasted about 1 hour and consisted primarily of a review of my resume. Mostly softball questions and a discussion of the company.

    The next interview took place several weeks later when the department head came to Houston. I was scheduled for a 1 hour interview at 11:15. Due to the odd timing of this interview I was convinced that the interview would be over lunch and would be a long process. So, I took the entire day off for it. As it turned out, the interview only lasted about 1 hour and during the first 15 or 20 minutes the Internal Audit department head spent most of his time probing me about how the audit department at my current company is organized and functions. This was an immediate red flag for me as the questions were about processes within an audit function for which I would not be responsible. He was basically using the interview process to determine how my current company's audit department functioned. It was quite obvious that this individual had already decided that he was not going to hire me before the interview ever began. He also inferred that I had lied on my resume and he said that he had not yet decided how the department would be organized in Houston and he was going to let the employees fight it out and see who was standing when the dust settled. What the hell ?????!!!!!

    The remainder of the interview was primarily filled with softball questions and a discussion of Wood Group. At about the 1 hour mark, there was a knock on the door and it was one of my would be peers (obviously pre-arranged). He poked his head in and asked if we were about to wrap things up. I politely said that I didn't want to detain them if they had pressing matters, to which the department head responded "you can have five more minutes". I wrapped things up and got out of there.

    They told me that I would hear back from them (phone call) the following week regarding another round of interviews with Wood Group and Mustang financial higher ups. Standard practice to have 3 face to face interviews they said. Of course I never heard back. About 4 weeks after the interview I get this email response:

    After 1 phone interview and 2 face to face interviews, I get an automated response telling me that my status is 'Unsuccessful'.

    Very Cold. Very Unprofessional.

    Glad I didn't get the job.
