    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at PDVSA.

    Interview

    The interview was pleasant and we just went briefly through my resume. It helped that I had most of the qualifications the company was looking for. The only downside was that after knowing I got the job I had to wait for months until they called me.

    Interview Questions

    • Like many international oil companies, this company relies heavily on Lotus Notes, so there were many questions regarding email and database management.   Answer Question
