    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ION Geophysical.

    Interview

    Very gentle interviews. No technical drills at all. The interviews are one-to-one. They hardly ask any technical questions. It seems they trust the employee who brought your resume in. So, if they have an opening and if you have a friend who is in some good position there, then you can almost be sure that you get hired by them. I never see anyone hired through a recruiter there.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Reasonable.
