    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rowan Companies (Houston, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was seemless and not structured at all. HR manager interviewed me on my past experience and my skill level of excel and other office products. I was asked about my past experience and how I handle conflict.
