### If water in a well rises 2 feet each day and falls 1 foot each night, how long til the water reaches the top of a 10 foot well

It will reach the top on the 9th day, the question only asks about reaching the top and not remaining at a 10 foot level. The level will be 8 ft at the end of 8th day and then it will go up to 10ft the next day; day 9. Less

every day it rises 2 feet during the day and one feet at night it drops basically it rises only 1 foot each day and shall take 10 days to get to 10 feet. Less

net gain per day of 1 ft, with a peak gain of 2 ft. If day=12 hrs and night = 12 hrs, then the peak on day 9 will reach the 10 ft mark, or 8.5 days Less

### Have you repaired any electrical item. What how next time if encountered how different u will do that.

I guess no one has heard from them ...

I have a hirevue interview after 2 days any recommendations and the interview questions? Less

Did you hear back from them?

### If you placed a perforating gun 2000 ft underneath the ground and ignite the charge. Which direction would it blast? If you were do the same, but the depth was 200 ft, would you expect the same direction? Why?

would you mind to tell me were i can find the answer ?

Unless you are using TCP with an orienting sub, or some gyro method with wireline guns, you cannot orient wireline guns. I have not heard of any orietation for wireline guns. Guns run on wireline, assuming equally balanced, will rotate as per well geometry with turn and when blindly perfingbat 2000 ft and 200 ft the holes will be oriented differently. Less

At 2000' assuming maximum stress is in vertical direction, the fracture will move in vertical direction. And at 200' the fracture will move in horizontal direction. Less

### Why aren't you interested in the role?

"We did not choose to hire the applicant due to the fact that some from more challenging, especially Urban cultures are not the most productive workers." That's actually racist as hell!!! I'm disappointed in you B.W. - that's if you are the same B.W I knew SHAME ON YOU... But I guess that doesn't surprise me considering that place a shambles lead by a dictator who rips off their clients and treats their staff like slaves &amp; is more concerned about looking the part than actually investing in their staff. I'm beyond angry at your comment and i say again - SHAME ON YOU Less

I had a 2nd interview with Netstar yesterday and I have to say it was the most uncomfortable experience I have had in my professional career to date. The Ops Manager and People and Culture Manager couldn't have been nicer. Shame the same cannot be said for the SDM.... his style of interviewing appears to be one of intimidation and constantly trying to assert his authority by giving negative scenarios and putting people in a corner to see how they react. Very much gave me the impression that it is either done his way or there is the door. Actually found him to be rather intimidating, almost to the point of bullying. When answering his questions the feed back from my answers was 'hmmm ok'. To pretty much all of them. There was no actual engagement around my answers from him. And the scenarios got more and more negative and, frankly ridiculous the more further through the interview I got. I would suggest that the SDM needs to work on his interview techniques, and move away from the alpha male approach and actually engage with candidates. Less

Family commitments, looking to continue in '2nd line' which is traditionally break/fix, not '1st line' which is helpdesk. The two cannot be done together Less

### What was your best McGuyver moment?

This question is just a creative way to ask you how you solved a problem at work that required you to think outside the box, improvise or invent a solution that was not proposed by someone else. Proper preparation for this question is identifying a significant project where you had substantial impact on the success of the outcome, hopefully by identifying a solution on your own. Less

Have real MacGyver answer ready, but start out with a MacGruber answer like "Once I was in the control room of a deserted power plant..." Less

How about spelling MacGyver correctly? You didnt even come close

Dude, is it easy to pass even if you are a fresh graduate? And is there any training? And how many days did it take for you to acomplish upto the final interview? Thanks, needed some answers, i appreciate if my questions are answered. Less

^yeah i guess it's easy. I'm also a fresh grad, the exam is super easy. There's a training about your job once you accepted their contract. You're under probation for 6 months. It took me just a day to get interviewed, took the exam, and their job offer. Less

### Asked me to describe a time where i faced a technical challenge to which i hadn't been trained on before and how did i handle it.
