    I applied in-person – interviewed at Halliburton.

    I heard about a job fair at the local Halliburton. I spoke to a woman who was recruiting and accepting resumes, she was friendly. She then introduced me to the man responsible for interviewing me, who was also quite friendly. The interview was straight forward, he reviewed my resume and asked fair questions. I was hired shortly thereafter.

    I had several one on one interviews. Overall the people were welcoming and nice, they just want to have an idea about who you are, what you know and what are you expectations from the job you are applying for.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview Details

    Got an on-campus interview. It was an one-one behavioral based interview. Somehow the questions were hard. For example: give an example of the things that you learnt quickly and the things which took longer to learn in your past positions.
    They required Driving Licence- Class 5 and being able to do physical works.

    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.

    Field Engineer - Cementing Interview

    Interview Details

    Unfortunately there is not much I can offer here. I had an internship and received an offer from that. All I would say is stress safety culture. Halliburton is big into safety. Show how you have been safe. Also show how you have successfully worked with people that are completely different from you. That would definitely make you stand out. You could mention how you like to get out doors and get your hands dirty. Those are all descriptive of a Halliburton Engineer.

    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiating as far as I know.
