    I have been working at Whiting Petroleum full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work with great compensation. The company is taking steps to improve and has slowly improved the entire time that I've been here.

    Cons

    Departments are very siloed. Not only do departments not work together but it seems that there is an effort to keep them from working together

    Advice to Management

    Work on fostering better communication throughout the entire company. Get rid of the need to know attitude of management.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whiting Petroleum (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had a phone call with the people I'd be working with. They asked some technical questions, but nothing too difficult. They seemed interested in giving their interviewees a good experience.
