    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nexen (Austin, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruitment website with a resume, and got accepted for an interview soon after. Interviewed on campus - very standard procedure. The interview was mostly a resume review. The interviewer was interested in my past experience so I was asked about what I did in the past and answered some simple technical questions about the subjects.
