    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Scientific Drilling in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was a pre-interviewer that called me up from scientific drilling. She told me he was in kind of a hurry and thought I would be a good fit in their company. Expect a phone call from him next week. Never heard from him. Kind of discouraging. That is one thing that makes it hard nowadays to apply for jobs "The internet". You cant call or go up there to apply. They want it all done online so the computer can filter through potential employees. Well, I don't remember when knowing how to write a resume can show you that you are a good employee. I was raised on persistence and determination to get a job (squeaky wheel gets the oil). I like to meet face to face, that at least shows you your character to them and to see if you would be a good fit with the rest of the employees.

    Interview Questions

    • what did I know about Scientific Drilling. Do you know how directional drilling works and what it entails. since I had derrick hand experience. I would be a better fit for the regular motor technician.   1 Answer
