    I have been working at BHP Billiton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing Culture. Leaders here walk the talk. Rare in the Oil space!
    Very flexible working. Great for females.
    Pays above market rate.
    Possible the best office space in Houston. Think Silicon Valley cool but even better!

    Cons

    Headquartered in Australia so you may have night calls if based in the U.S.
    Although the incredible flexible working culture more than makes up for it.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I came in through a temp agency so the process is different from usual. They knew a lot about me already and trusted my ability based on their trust for the company. The interview was short, laid back and sweet
