Weatherford International Interview
Hi there, a few weeks back when I was about to attend an interview session with Weatherford International (Malaysia) on July 2011, I searched hints for the interview. As I searched through Google with keywords 'Weatherford interview' I hardly found related information about it. There were about 2-3 posts on forums. So I feel that by this posting will bring more traffics from keywords Weatherford International Interview.
Actually I am not selected for the Graduate Development Program as a result of the interview but sharing is good in blogging.
The interview starts on 8 o'clock in Crown Plaza Hotel Kuala Lumpur. There were a few activities conducted such as an overview talk by the HR, tower building competition (with starws and tapes), 1 on 1 interview, group discussions and 5 minutes presentations on 'promoting outsiders to join weatherford' etc.
During the 1 on 1 interview there were a couple of tricky questions that tested your mind. One of them is 'Let say your leader shorten your project duration to 2 hours although by safety reasons, it can only be completed in 3 hours, will you bypass the safety regulations?' You must have a good reasoning for your answer but I highly recommend you to stick with the safety regulations (although I mistakenly answered the opposite).
Another tips for the interview with weatherford international is show them that you are hardworking during your university level. Do not stop talking until they are satisfied with your answers. Put some technical knowledge when answering and be confident...That's all.. I think that I can do better if I am more prepared. Pity on me because I really anticipate to join the company when I know about the benefits and experiences that previous students obtained and shared during a session with them.
