I have been working at Newfield Exploration full-time
Great environment for self starters. Young workforce but skilled co-workers. Entrepreneurial attitude and spirit. Need to wear multiple hats and be self driven.
If you need constant direction to motivate yourself or don’t know how to look for answers to problems it could be a challenge.
Advice to Management
Continue to give responsibility early. Resist the big company mentality. It is cropping up in the some CYA policies like deleting emails after 60 days.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Newfield Exploration (The Woodlands, TX).
I contacted NFX through my on-campus recruiting services. I attended a pre-interview dinner which really helped me to get hired. The company seemed like a typical place to work and the employees were very laid back for an oil and gas company. I had one behavioral interview with 2 employees, one of which was at the dinner.
