    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Newfield Exploration (The Woodlands, TX).

    Interview

    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.
