The Halliburton Recruitment Was a Five Step Procedure
- Telephonic interview
- Personal interview
- Telephonic interview with leads in US.
- Telephonic interview (technical)
Before company calls you for a telephonic interview you will be notified at least 24 hours before. The company will schedule call based on availability of manager and you and gives you a specific time slot. In telephonic interview technical questions were asked by a person who has a good technical knowledge and can dig to roots of topic you are discussing, (therefore I assume that he was not from HR).
The questions comprised and varied from desktops, printer, routers, servers to different software applications. The duration of interview was 15-20 minutes and stress was given on Microsoft application like Microsoft outlook.
After the telephonic interview you will get an email informing venue and time for PI. The PIs are conducted by team leads however I was pretty lucky because I was interviewed by Manager. This interview in Halliburton was very comfortable as technical questions were very few and questions were more on general side to know your personality.
Questions asked were like, what will you do in … conditions? What was your best day, bad or worst day in your last job rtc. This interview will not be a great challenge for you if you are really good in communication skills and crisis management ability.

After personal interview in Halliburton the next round is Telephonic interview with leads in US. You will be required to attend this interview from Halliburton’s office.
