    Engineering Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Midland, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pioneer Natural Resources (Midland, TX (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Two groups of two persons each, first group had a great interview process questions and all. Second group, same questions basically but definitely felt a more hostile and dry environment, did not take much time trying to know about me, although I had excellent references and had been a former employee for several years. Even felt HR lady unprofessionalism on second group as if trying to just finish up and lack of interest from beginning.

    HR Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Midland, TX (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pioneer Natural Resources (Midland, TX (US)).

    Interview

    I applied for the position 2-3 months prior to being called for an interview. The Recruiter sent me an email template with the wrong name, most likely the person she emailed before me. I interviewed with three HR reps and the interview lasted around 30 minutes. I got an unwelcoming vibe from the interviewers and felt a little uncomfortable, which is surprising, because I've heard great things about Pioneer.

    Oracle DRM Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pioneer Natural Resources (Irving, TX (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call from a staffing agency. The HR scheduled me for a telephonic interview with the lead recruiter within a week. The lead recruiter asked a whole bunch of behavioral questions for 45 mins. Cleared the behavioral round and I was called in for an onsite interview . The onsite interview was very casual, I had a panel of 3 managers from different departments and they asked me general questions from my resume or about Oracle DRM. I told them that I didn't have enterprise level experience in Oracle DRM but I was willing to learn. They said they would let me know if I was selected for the next round.
    They never called again, so I asked the HR for a feedback and he said that they wanted someone more experienced. Well that was fair enough. But I was super impressed with their benefits and free lunch everyday! Oh boy....
    Great company though.
