Equipment Engineer Interview

Equipment Engineer

Interviewed at Halliburton

There was some misunderstanding between the management personnel because of which I worked for six months at a much Junior position than I was recruited for.

Interview Question – The questions were typical electrical and instrumentation theory questions.   Answer Question

Aberdeen, Scotland

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Halliburton in November 2012.

Interview Details Applied online through Oil Careers and within a week heard back from a member of the Halliburton HR staff to come in for an interview. Had interview the following week after my invite. Much of the interview was be told about the company from a senior staff member while an HR girl writes notes. After interview is done a past graduate employee takes you for a tour of the company.

Interview was very layed back, in fact the majority of the interview was spent listening about the company and the role i had applied for.

Field Engineer Interview

Field Engineer
Bakersfield, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Halliburton in March 2014.

Interview Details A phone interview was conducted initially for the employer to explain the position. The emphasis was on the long work hours (7 days on call, 7 days off). They did ask about my knowledge of the industry and my career goals. I was then invited to an interview. I was not informed that it would be a lunch interview until the day of the interview. I was interviewed by 2 recruiting specialists and 4 Field Engineers. The lunch interview was informal and seemed more of a meet and greet to see if you would fit into their team. They also continued to emphasize the long work hours and predominantly being on the field in direct sunlight.

Interview Question – As a female, how do you feel about leading a team compromised of only men and how would you handle any problems that you had with your male team members?   Answer Question
