    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Diamond Offshore (Houston, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewd with upper managenment first. Next visited with middle management - mostly as a meet and greet. Upper mngt was very professional and curtious. Middle mngt was less interested in spending time with you. You could tell since they had no say they were not very interested.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly asked how I felt about being away from home for long periods, any fear of heights, traveling, typical rig life questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Pay was set amount, not negotiable.
