    Graduate Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Petrofac.

    Interview

    3 parts: Personal, technical, behavior.
    Personal questions were normal.
    Technical part was very difficult, I was supposed to draw schematics, for turbomachinery, hydraulic systems, refrigeration circuits.... too technical. I also had to take 3 IQ tests before landing the face to face interview.
    Behavioral questions were also a bit tough.
    It was my first interviewing experience, came away very tough. Still, it was a good experience for the future.
