    Interpreter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Petroleum Geo-Services (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Brief and not very deep. Interview only lasted an hour and there were no really challenging questions. I was interviewed for interpretation but hired for depth model building. I preferred depth model building but there were no questions regarding it.

    Interview Questions

    • How I would pick a water bottom. And would I consider a job in depth imaging instead. Only one series of interviews. Very different from previous company where there were two sets of interviews of two to four hours   1 Answer
