At Concho we look for adaptability, critical thinking skills, sense of ownership/accountability, integrity, organizational fit, and humility. We use a behavior-based interviewing technique to ensure our applicants align with Concho's core values.This interview technique helps us to gauge how a candidate will act in a given situation and has the potential to tell us one of two things: first, that they possess the knowledge and skills for the position. Second, it can show that they hold values and beliefs that are consistent with Concho's culture. We believe our employees are our greatest assets, therefore hiring the right fit for Concho is a top priority. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
