    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stillwater, OK (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Stillwater, OK (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was great, interviewer was very respectful as well as respectable. The only complaint I have is that I never received anything after the interview, not an email, phone call, or anything. The interview went very well but apparently the number of applicants overwhelmed their contact process. I would recommend sending a follow up email after the interview to improve your chances.

    On campus interview for a petroleum engineering internship. Typical behavioral interview questions. The interview was on-on-one and took about 40 minutes.

    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.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips in September 2014.

    Interview

    Invited a couple of my colleagues in for interviews without any intention to hire them and told them so at the end of their respective interviews. My own interview felt aggressive, like they were trying to throw me off balance. Possible interviewing technique? Recruiting called everyone who interviewed to tell them they were their ideal choice but HR wouldn't let them pick you. Felt a bit dishonest. Not all bad but left with a negative experience. Recruiters were nice/ pleasant during their info session and at the career fair.

    Landman Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips in September 2014.

    Interview

    I did an on campus interview at my college. Instead of having you wait in a waiting room, you sit at a table filled with different free give aways, other students waiting for their interview, and one worker. This is your opportunity to display to the worker that you can network with the other students. A friend who interned with them during a previous summer told me that this is a sort of test to see which students will be worried about their interview and which students will be relaxed. The person who is going to interview you comes to get you and takes you into a small room where there is a person who asks the questions and a scribe. Both seemed very intimidating at first giving little feedback. Be very very familiar with behavioral questions and try to have an array of different stories lined up to tell. The interview took about 45 minutes. After the interview I immediately received an offer to join the team for dinner, where the people who interviewed me seemed much less intimidating and told me a did a very good job. Overall it was a tough interview but because of thoroughness it was easy to play up my strengths and really talk about why I was most qualified.

    IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bartlesville, OK (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips (Bartlesville, OK (US)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The communication in the beginning is fantastic. Once you get to the onsite interview it completely changes. The employees don't make you feel welcome and it is relatively hard to get conversation going. The process is long and you shouldn't get your hopes up. They don't hire a lot of people and you need to be pretty much perfect to get a job.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral based interview. The questions are basic for the interview.   Answer Question

    Geoscience Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ConocoPhillips in September 2014.

    Interview

    There were two interviewers, one who was asking the required questions and one who more carried on a conversation. It felt a little like "good cop, bad cop" and I wasn't sure what my chances were for an offer after the interview. The interviewer who carried on the conversation was very positive and easy to talk to. The other interviewer (who was asking questions from a paper) was a little less easy to talk to, and the questions weren't easy to answer. I guess with the two interviewing styles intermixed, the questions just caught me off-guard and I really had to switch gears to think of an answer.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation in which you failed. What did you do afterwards?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had another offer in hand from another company and had not heard from ConocoPhillips, so I let them know. They responded with a better offer, which I accepted.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.
