Gas Pipeline Controller Interview

Gas Pipeline Controller
Houston, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at El Paso in August 2008.

Interview Details The department manager looked at the resume I sent in with my application and called and asked me to come in for an interview. I went in prepared to sell myself. I had a portfolio and everything. None of it was ever looked at. I was never asked a single question outside of "what do you think of our gym?" I was told what the job was, had the schedule explained to me, met some people around the office, and went home. That night I was offered the job. So were 3 other people. There is a 80% turnover rate in the department...
