    Contracts Specialist Interview

    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX (US)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Represented by an outside recruiter, interview scheduled very efficiently and timely. It was a panel interview with hiring managers from different business units as there were several positions open. Allocated time seemed too short for panel interview and one interviewer did not show up. Of the kother two, one had to leave before interview was finished due to double booking.

    Interview Questions

    • Hard for interviewer to ask appropriate questions on behalf of several business units. This resulted in very general questions.   1 Answer
