    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hunt Oil Company.


    Three person interview with the hiring manager, area VP, and another manager. The questions are basic questions regarding your goals and who you are, nothing too difficult. There is not much advanced communication so outside of the hiring manager don't expect the other interviewers to know your background.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions are basic with an emphasis on what are your goals and where do you see yourself in the future. Also expect to walk through your resume in some detail.   Answer Question


    Fairly straight forward, not much negotiation.
