    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BG Group (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Met with one HR and two geoscientists at the same time. The two geos were members of the team for which I was being interviewed. All three interviewers were courteous, gracious, and very interested in what I had to say. They were quick to tell me that their team was new and inexperienced and that they were hoping to add someone like me to round it out.
