Mechanic Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person - interviewed at Sanjel in October 2011.
Interview Details The Company was advertised on Craigslist. I contacted the recruiting department and discussed my qualifications and was given an application. There was an urgency on their part and they scheduled an interview in my home area, nearly 1000 miles from the job location. I didn't take the job initially, but I called back one year later and got an interview with who would be my direct supervisor and was hired.
Interview Question – Why do you think the head mechanic at your last job didn't like you? View Answer
Negotiation Details – The manager told me my salary would be low twenties per hour. That was more than I expected, and when Recruiting sent me the official offer, It was twenty two. So there realy wasn't any negotiation on my part.
Driver, Equipment Operator Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Sanjel in September 2012.
Interview Details Hiring process very meticulous. Had to have every detail done in full, faxed back and forth with Denver Office for 3-4 days. Bounced between people and departments before interview. Communication about status not always clear or precise. Interview was not too hard, no room for negotiation on salary. Found out later that they probably weren't as selective as I was led to believe, so I had little reason to be nervous.
Interview Question – Nothing significant. I don't remember any real difficult questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I found no room for negotiations as an entry-level employee.
Frac Driver Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sanjel in January 2012.
Interview Details Everything was easy. I had my cdl learners permit and they liked me. I got a drug test right away and was told I am a shoe in so I just waited for a call back with an offer. I had to chase my offer becuase my file was misplaced at the office. My friend who was interviewed at the same time recieved his call a week before i did, which was three days after the innitial interview. I later went through the physical test and passed and at the last minute before I recieved my start date orders which I was told to be on the following Monday, I was told my back ground check was bad and I will get a letter telling me about it. They could not hire me though. Very dissapointing call when I was all packed. I am as squeeky clean as it gets so that back ground check must go back to the over due book at the library when I was ten.

Junior Field Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Sanjel in May 2010.
Interview Details A couple of weeks after applying through their web site an HR from Sanjel called and briefly wanted to know the usual "What do you know about Sanjel?, What was your favourite university course?, What do you know about the position?". After that the HR setup the interview a week later at the University. Then it was a 1 on 1 interview which consisted of the supervisor engineer explaining about the the various service lines with Sanjel. Not very difficult, wasn't behavioural based, it was all very casual chat.
Interview Question – Explaining my poor driver's abstract... Answer Question
