    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX (US)
    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ConocoPhillips.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed at a job fair and a site visit a few weeks later at the HQ in Houston. Interviewed with 5 different people who asked a lot of cliche behavioral questions from what I believe was a prepared list. Everyone I met with seemed professional and pleasant. Didn't hear back from this company for 3 WEEKS after this interview, but was finally given a verbal offer (salary, start date, etc).
    Was told to expect an official written offer in a few days, then was asked for my college transcript which no one had asked for during this whole process. Didn't hear anything for a few days, then received a call saying they were retracting my offer due to lower than expected grades on my transcript.
    Obviously I thought this was poorly handled, if it was so important to them why did they not ask for it before?
     I recommend you take a strong look at this program before you potentially waste over a month of your time with these people like I did.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ConocoPhillips in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Takes a while to get through the system. HR and recruiting is somewhat unwieldy. Once they are interested, opportunities come up. Interviews are not particularly difficult if you are competent and knowledgable about your subject matter.

    I don't rate the interviews as too difficult, but if I was applying outside my depth, I think I would have been weeded out.

    Interview Questions
    • Only surprise was they drug test. (Very safety conscious).   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They start with a very competitive offer. Consider any offer you get to be about 50% higher when you factor in the generous benefits. (Great profit-sharing, bonus, on-site health facilities, etc.)

    If anything, they aren't aggressive enough in presenting the opportunity.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ConocoPhillips in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter initially and interviewed with 4 different people a week later. All 4 were from different departments and had different outlooks. It was good to get multiple opinions and answers. It was mostly a behavioral interview process but was very "down to earth" and welcoming. They were not intimidating like most interviews like this. They provided great insight on the company and we talked about my skills and most importantly my hobbies outside of work. They were very concerned about a work life balance which I thought was great. A week after interviewing I was offered a position with the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared for behavioral questions that focus on analytical ability, team work, leadership, and initiative. Come prepared with answers that highlight those things and that relate to the position open.   Answer Question
