    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum (Lubbock, TX (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewers were very friendly and easy to talk to. There was a pre-interview where they narrowed their initial candidates down. In this interview they just want you to talk about yourself and went through my resume. Before the 2nd round interviews they took about 20 of the candidates out to dinner to get to know everyone a bit better. Again, this was very low pressure and pretty laid back. From this dinner they narrowed down the candidates to about 14 people to be interviewed for the second round. I did not make it to the second round but did attend the dinner. They called me personally to let me know that I did not make it, which was nice. I heard from others who did have a 2nd interview that they mostly asked questions and talked about their previous intern experiences and projects they have worked on. Awesome company.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Anadarko Petroleum.

    Interview

    Really bad, because they ask you to record your interview and then send it to them. So if you are camera conscious you are toasted. Bad way to rule out good candidates. Lack of human interaction. No phone interview and no personal interaction!

    Interview Questions

    • One feels stupid looking into the camera and answering questions. And you have 2-3 chances to time yourself. Gave only a day and a half to submit the interview.   Answer Question

    It was a campus interview. Questions varied for each person. They start out broad but then ask specific questions based on your resume. Questions are more of "get to know you" rather than "how many skittles would it take to fill the Gulf of Mexico"
