    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Halliburton in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was brought into the office for an interview when I was dropping off my application. I was asked some questions about my motivation for the position and my skills. I was told they were only hiring contractors at the time, but HR would instruct me how to set up my own corporation and the type of insurance I'd need.

    Interview Questions
    • It wasn't particularly difficult at all, but I already had oilfield experience.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was in a motor vehicle accident shortly after the interview, so I couldn't dedicate the time out of town and thus didn't bother setting up the corporation.
