### 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

### How do you define a team?

Yes it is very general. Some situational questions (What would you do if you saw this happening) along with some cashiering and integrity questions. Less

how long did you wait after the interview for a response on whether you got the job? I was told that it is a lengthy process and that I would receive a ring with good or bad news and its been 2 months already. Please any info would be apprec iated. Less

Is it multiple choice

### What is the angle between the hour hand and minute hand on a clock when it is 3:15?

7.5 degrees

The answer is 7.5 degrees. There is a 30 degree difference between each number on a clock. (360 degrees/ 12 = 30 degrees). Therefore, the hour hand moves 30 degrees every 60 minutes. The time given is 3:15, so we know that the minute hand pointed directly at the 3, but the hour hand is somewhere between the 3 and the 4. 15 minutes has passed and we know there are four 15 minute segments in an hour. We also know that it take the hour hand 60 minutes to move the full 30 degrees. So if we divide the 30 degrees that the hour hand will move in 60 minutes, by 4 because 15 minutes has passed by and there are 4 fifteen minute segments in 60 minutes, we find that the hour hand moves 7.5 degrees every 15 minutes. So at 3:15 the angle between the minute hand and the hour hand is 7.5 degrees. 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 ...

### 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

### "This will be harder than anything you've done. Gauranteed. Still want to do it?"

Your concern is whether not the job is hard to do, then you've chosen the wrong job. You have to enjoy your commitment. Less

The Hardest thing I ever did was survive Marine Corp boot camp and survive war. This job is exciting because it is challenging. Once "alignment" is defined then creativity and critical thinking kick in. Less

I'm curious as to why it's the hardest job I could do. I have already taken a seminar on how to be a writer's assistant from a person currently working as a writer for BLACKISH. I have already done research for a friend's published book entitled, "Mary, The Mary Tyler Moore Story." If your standards are very high, I look forward to the challenge. 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

just answer it how you interpret those technical concepts.

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

I talked about how i talked with that member if he/she had any problem

### have you ever been fired or asked to leave
