Proudfoot

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Proudfoot (Houston, TX) in Mar 2021

Interview

I had 5 separate interviews. 1 in person and 4 on Zoom. I was asked to put together a 30-60-90 for them regarding my approach to building the Oil and Gas business. I sent in my first pass and was asked to make it more detailed. I suppose my free work was insufficient. My final interview ended up being with the actual person I would be reporting to. 20 minutes into the interview with that person they stated they did not want to be in Oil and Gas. Interview over. My time was wasted (2-3 days in total) and I was strung along. I was offered a "finders Fee" position. Absolute joke. Do not waste your time. This company is poorly rated on here for a reason.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Proudfoot (London, England, England)

Interview

The interview process is very straight forward. it consists of two phone interview, one with the recruiter and another one with a senior manager about your motivations and experience. The second stage of the interview process consists of an assessment day where you will be confronted to a case study with other candidates, which you will have to present after 3 hours of preparation in front of three members of the company. During that test you will be summoned to do 2 small interviews/mini case study about your experience and aptitudes to react in certain situations. After you will have presented your final presentation about the case study you will have to do one very standard translation from english to another language (French/German) and finally you will have to do a Excel test. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The most important thing you need to know is that these people are truly and simply charlatans. You need to avoid this company at any cost. After having completed the assessment day I was contacted the next day by them, where they made me an offer to join their company. Thus I took it for granted which might have been the worst mistake I have ever done... They told me they contact me back in a few weeks time to discuss further about the contract and when I should join the company, which I did. After a while and no signs from them, I started wondering why I still had no news from them and contacted them, and was told that finally they didn't sign their initial contract with their clients, thus I would have to wait a bit more. I contacted them many times after and didn't get any answers at all. 3 months have now passed and these ******** have gone silent ever since. They made me waist so much precious time I could have spent looking for another opportunity which at the time I had but I neglected because of their fake offer. DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY AT ALL, they are a bunch of liars and charlatans who treat people like they are a piece of garbage. They just proceed to interviews in the eventual case of futur clients cases which basically never happen due to their lack of professionalism and they really bad reputation of the market.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Proudfoot (Atlanta, GA) in Dec 2015

Interview

I was referred by an employee. There was a phone interview first, then a face-to-face. Those involved weren't very experienced in the process and I felt like I was one of the first people they had ever hired. There was also a background check.

Interview Questions
  • There weren't really any interview questions asked but rather babbling about how great the company was.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Proudfoot (Atlanta, GA)

Interview

The interview process was actually pretty fun. The lead contact/recruiter was an enjoyable party to work with. He was very detailed on how the process would flow throughout the day. The interview was multiple layers of executives analyzing your responses, attitude, and behaviors. Numerous role playing exercises. The experience took the entire day. There were three different one on one interviews throughout the day. The first is getting to know you, which was made difficult due to the interviewer's superior ability to hide all emotion and body language. The second, which involved the first role play was interesting... The group process where you work with other candidates was enjoyable. It was nice to see other candidates with the same ability, aptitude, and desire to succeed. They did a phenomenal job weeding out candidates who did not fit in with their culture.

Interview Questions
  • Why are you interested and tell me how you can make a change.
