    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, received a call approx. 1 month later and they asked all screening questions (Do you think this sort of lifestyle would suit you, etc.). Two weeks later I had a phone interview with an engineer and HR rep, another two weeks later I was asked to go into the Halliburton office. There had an interview with the operations manager, two engineers and a HR rep. Two weeks after this final interview I did a medical and was offered the job.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were really easy just behavioural questions, for example give an example of a conflict situation that you diffused, how do you deal with a client that is unhappy, where do you see yourself in 5 years.   Answer Question

    Field Engineer - Cementing Interview

    Interview Details

    Unfortunately there is not much I can offer here. I had an internship and received an offer from that. All I would say is stress safety culture. Halliburton is big into safety. Show how you have been safe. Also show how you have successfully worked with people that are completely different from you. That would definitely make you stand out. You could mention how you like to get out doors and get your hands dirty. Those are all descriptive of a Halliburton Engineer.

    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiating as far as I know.

The second interview involves interviewing with an engineer in the service sector you wish to be apart of.

    Applied through school's website and got an email to schedule an interview a few weeks ago. Interview was simple. It was about 30mins. Only one person was there asking some basic behavior questions. Interviewer has engineering background but didn't ask any questions relevant to skill. He was really nice, taking notes while you were talking.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a Wednesday and received a call the following Thursday. I had a brief phone interview and was told I was a great candidate and would hear back soon to set up an interview. They called the next day and my interview was scheduled for the following Monday! The interview began as scheduled, however I quickly realized how over prepared I was. The questions and style of the interview were VERY relaxed and laid-back. It felt less like an interview and more like a nice chat about my work experience. As much as I had prepared, I wasn't expecting that since they are one of the biggest and most successful companies in the world. But like I've read in other reviews, this seems to be their style. The entire interview lasted about 30-45 min. In the end, I thought it went well and I was grateful to have had the experience. I sent a brief follow-up e-mail the next morning but never heard back. I only recently received a rejection letter via e-mail, 2 months after the in-person interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any difficult questions, but I was not expecting the interviewer to talk more than me. I learned a lot about the person and position, but they did not get to learn enough about me and how my skills and experience would value their department.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with 2 Engineers. Talked about the position then asked theoretical questions. Questions were difficult and they did not talk during this part. They also communicated with each other while muting themselves. Entry Level positions doesn't mean 0 year experience, Halliburton would like you to have some previous job experience.
