    I have been working at DeGolyer and MacNaughton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Since it's founding in 1936 there has NEVER been a layoff. Employee turn over is very low with people spending their entire carriers with the company. Something almost unheard of in todays business environment. Pay is good, thus the low turnover. As a professional there are around the world travel opportunities and work with the best client companies in the world. This leads to work experience that is invaluable, you will work on top projects with top of the line companies internationally though you will be able to live in the US. As support staff, the jobs are challenging and diverse and you will have the opportunity to meet and work with people from all around the world.

    Cons

    You may have to put in a short trial period at a lower salary. D&M is looking for the best people to maintain their excellent reputation built up over decades. If you go into an interview and don't know what the company "makes" you will not get far. Our clients are often from very conservative countries and companies and expect D&M to present a totally professional appearance and demeanor. Though the day to day work environment is business casual, you must be prepared to present a more formal front.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient and hire good people.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DeGolyer and MacNaughton (Dallas, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Standard in-person interview with a couple of overpaid big shots. In a nutshell, they want their administrative staff to live hand to mouth while the principals all make 6 figure salaries. They want to get the admin staff on the cheap, but expect them to fully take care of the companies needs before they leave work each day. It's a privately held business, so it is difficult to say exactly what the company makes, but it is safe to say it's a multi hundred million dollar corporation. These guys are cheap. Don't apply for an admin position unless you still live at home with mom and dad or you are a say at home mother returning to work after 18 years out of the workforce. Cheap

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask you your salary requirements. Better say something like, "who cares about money? It's making you guys happy that counts" or you will never hear from them again   Answer Question
