    Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Employee in State College, PA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (State College, PA (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    One round of behavioral based interview questions. Not super difficult and the interview is fairly relaxed! Be sure to study the STARR model and run through some standard behavioral based interview questions before hand. They will ask you to tell them a little bit about yourself. Don't be intimidated by the oil and gas industry and be willing to ask questions about it to show your willingness to learn.

    • Can you tell us about a time where you had to accomplish a long term goal and how did you accomplish that?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Tulsa, OK (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I signed up for an interview on campus. I interviewed once at school and was invited to interview at the IT Headquarters in Bartlesville, OK (all expenses paid). The interviews in BV consisted of several 1:1 behavioral interviews all of which were pretty standard and enjoyable. One of the interviewers was a bit rough around the edges and it was obvious he had "better things to do." I didn't care for the personalities of most of the CP employees I met and knew I would not enjoy life working at CP. They have amazing benefits and their resources are out of this world but there are more important things to consider when looking for a job.

    Interview

    I was recruited through Lynced In, It was a simple process. I really liked the managers, and decided that a larger company wouldn't be so bad if I got the chance to work for these guys. Safety is a core value at COP.

    Reservoir Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    There were two interviewers. They basically just go through my resume from top to bottom and ask questions related to my resume, in great detail. Some questions involved the specific scientific term or experiment. Sometimes they ask me to describe the work experience and share some work knowledge with them.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are mixed with technical and behavioral. I didn't find the question to be that hard if you know your resume really well. I find the toughest question is at the end, when they ask you if you have any questions for them. I still don't know what kind of question should I ask to get give interviewers the best impression.   Answer Question

    Construction Management Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Houston, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Was given one week notice for the interview. The interview itself was condeucted by the construction projects manager himself, and was mainly about my personality, and motivations for applying. I was also the first intern they interviewed from my program, so they asked a lot of questions about that and the content of my classes.
    Was asked a few of the typical questions like:
    Why do you want to work for us?
    What would you say makes you a good fit for this job/internship and for this company?
    What is you view/philosophy on safety?
    Their website was also very helpfull in preparing for the interview. It had a lot of tips on what kinds of question I would be asked and what they expected me to know coming in. Apparently that whole section is gone...
    As a side note, make SURE you memorize COPs S.P.I.R.I.T values, and their motto. (At ConocoPhillips, our work is never so urgent or important that we cannot take the time to do it safely and in an environmentally prudent manner." You will be asked about the spirit values for sure.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your view on safety? That is a tough question for a construction manager. I answered that safety is THE priority, but that it also had to be managed intelligently in order to keep a project moving forward. Prevention was the main tool in managing safety. That answer seemed to satisfy them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very simple. As an intern, they make an offer 2 weeks after the interview (a good one), and i accept.

After the initail interview I recieved an email to meet with an additional interviewer. This time there were some light technical questions. It felt like they were evaluationg where I would best fit. After this interview I recieved a formal offer.
