    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Transocean.

    Interview

    15 minute personal interview with a Captain of a drillship. Read through my letters of recommendation and engineering evaluations. Then two weeks HR contacted me. I heard others had a technical interview. Technical interviews consisted of basic marine engineering, diesels, electronics, refrigeration, propulsion.
