    I worked at WorleyParsons full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about WorleyParsons is the high percentage of highly talented people that work there from which one can learn.

    Cons

    The organisation has become very full of internal politics and at the same time think very highly of themselves from past glory days.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on people and weed out the politics in the too-many old-school upper-level managers.

    Instrumentation and Control Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at WorleyParsons (Toronto, ON) in October-2017.

    Interview

    I had 2 telephonic interviews as I was out of town when the interviews were conducted. One interview was with HR and the other was with the Hiring/Reporting Manager.

    HR Manager Interview: It was generic and the HR discussed my Resume mostly and making sure that I was perfect fit for the position. Behavioral questions were tough and short time was given to answer them. Later, Salary expectation was also asked and the HR informed me about the maximum salary that they will be willing to offer me in-case the Hiring Manager decides to select me as final candidate out of 10 short-listed applicants. The interview lasted for about 30 minutes.

    Hiring Manager Interview: The hiring manager interview was quiet difficult. He had read my resume in detail and he asked me about my technical skills and level of knowledge related to the position. He then cross-questioned me from my resume to check my Technical Knowledge for about 30 minutes. Later, He asked me technical questions related specifically from the position which he had prepared before my interview. After technical questions, Behavioral questions were asked and lastly Salary expectations were also discussed.
    The hiring manager confirmed me that he will be selected me as the final candidate and will be later proceeding with further Hiring process. The interview lasted for about 1 hour 20 minutes.

    Every answer was typed both by HR manager and Hiring Manager.

    After my 2nd interview, I was contacted by the HR manager to provide contact details for my Referees to do reference checks and other back-ground checks were also done.

    Over-all, It only took them 4 weeks from date of application to Offer Letter Issuing.
    Overall, It was an Excellent experience.
