    Interview

    Two interviews were needed these were held in the managers office they were in a hurry to fill the contract it started out as 6 months and was extended Origin used a labour hire agency to hire the contractors so they were at arms length.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Origin Energy (Melbourne) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview followed by face to face interview by junior people. Typical style of questions and a skills test which I consider lower level than the job offered. Never heard from them again.

    Interview Questions

    • Questioned my experience on something which I had not represented any knowledge. Was able to talk to it, but I found it odd to be put on the spot for a random, non-relevant topic.   Answer Question

    Senior Reservoir Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brisbane
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Origin Energy (Brisbane) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Prior applying for this job, I did some consulting work for Origin APLNG and was well-received.
    3 rounds - I was interviewed for LNG reservoir engineer, Origin/ConocoPhlips/Sinopec project.
    1.HR telephone interview (20min), just general information, typical HR question
    2. Spoke with Chief Petroleum Engineer on phone (15min-20min)-also more general background verification, work inspiration, finding out why I want to join Origin. Chief PE is function role so not related to the team who has the vacancy.
    3. Technical interview (1hr+)-this is a serious and most important one. Panel include the Team leader who also happened to be a very experienced hardcore RE + 1 more principle level reservoir engineer (both COP secondees) + 1 function team representative and 1HR . Very tough technical questions, in a friendly and non-threatening environment.

    Interview Questions

    • I guess I am not used to those "what if" questions that came from the HR templates.   Answer Question

    Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brisbane
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Origin Energy (Brisbane) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview was first. Always with technical colleagues (and one reporting manager up); HR attended a later (Skype) interview but I don't recall any questions. Once a suitable role was identified and the hiring manager (and I) were happy to proceed, it took several months to mature the contract. When it arrived, it had errors (incorrect bonus percentage) and it took another month+ to correct.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Origin Energy (Brisbane) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied directly with Origin
    It took a couple of months before being invited to a formal interview.
    It was a relaxed environment with HR and a member of the team.
    There style of questions were behavioural based and I had to give many examples of previous situations I had been in and how they were planned/resolved.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Origin Energy (Brisbane).

    Interview

    I applied online. The next stage was a video interview recording with three questions. You were able to re-record your answers as many times as you wanted. These were about motivation and they also asked you to describe a project that you enjoyed working on.
    Next was an assessment centre. This included a group exercise where you discussed a problem and you presented as a group. There was also a 20 minute face to face interview with one technical question and a Q and A session.
