    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Maersk Oil.

    Interview

    Very thorough, but unusual for the US. They require all candidates to complete personality and logical assessment tests before interviewing, even management candidates. The technical part was interesting and challenging. You will have to spend about 3 hours interviewing with everyone, but they are fast with the decision after that. The company has excellent benefits and pay scale. On top of it, they offer free lunches every day to all employees (very nice).
