    Interview

    Interview process is mainly for checking ur temperament under strenuous conditions. Interview is mainly hr and very less technical questions. Technical questions are easy. In hr they might give an situation and ask u how will u handle that situation. They try to prove ur answers wrong u have to calmly and patiently prove them hw u are right.
    Halliburton had come to our campus..so the complete process was aptitude round (maths and few questions gk time_ 15 min) gd round ( 2 topics general and technical topic) last round interview.

    Interview Questions

    • How will u rate urself as an engineer?

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    Hiring process is too lengthy. Apart from this the process is very unprofessional. First round is technical which is driven by some very good technically sound people but when they call you for face to face interview the process is not at all professional. They will tell you to give a powerpoint presentation on some testing scenario. You have to give this presentation in front of other candidates who are there for the interview. Even though your presentation is good the other candidates will always try to make it look bad. Other candidates will ask lot of irrelevant questions and you will loose your focus. the interview panel will have a lunch with all the candidates. during the lunch interview they will judge you on non professional things like your hobbies and all. This seems like their favorite pass time with cracking jokes on poor candidates

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    This was a group phone interview, but it was really more of an interrogation. I can't say I would want to work with these people now, so I guess it was good thing. Anything I said, they would question it derisively, from technical answers to past design decisions. Trying to explain something, I would frequently be interrupted. The whole thing was disrespectful.

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Halliburton.

    Interview

    You will be notified via email when your interview is. Normally two people are in the room, HR and the hiring manager. HR representative had no clue about the role she was interviewing you. Sales manager was not energetic. It shows little involvement on their part when they don't know what their looking for or can't describe the role in detail. Maybe have someone that knows the role to do the interview.
