    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Dropped my resume off at our campus career fair. Received a call and scheduled an on campus interview with one of their recruiters. Basic behavioral interview that lasted approximately one hour. The majority of the interview was spend discussing my prior internships, extra curricular activities, and research. Received a call about a week later and scheduled an on site interview for the following week. The on site interview included five interviews: two behavioral with supervisors, one technical with a technical expert, one with HR, and one with an executive. The whole day ran from about 7-2 including lunch with new hires and breakfast with a host. Received an offer two days later. The whole process took about 3 weeks from initial interview to offer letter.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    They were great to work with throughout the whole process. Initially talked at my schools career fair, then had a 1:1 interview the next day. Was given a phone interview from the specific location I was interested in a couple of days later. Flown down for the final site interview the following week and given the offer on the spot during the 3rd and final interview of that day. Note - process was expedited as I had other offers that I was considering.

    Interview Questions

    • I had previously worked on a very small project in an SRU unit, but had limited exposure to the actual SRU process. I was asked to draw the entire unit on a marker board and explain how it worked.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was blown away by how high the offer was and didn't feel I needed to negotiate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through EM Malaysia website. In 2 weeks, they called me saying I have been chosen for interview THE NEXT MORNING. Yes, extremely short notice. I took the shot and went for the interview. Basically they will have 4 candidates. It is a 1-on-1 interview with 4 interviewers from HR, Senior, Manager and Group Manager (in rotation). There was no technical questions, just STAR grilling interviews - esp from HR. HR guy will pressure you to the max, makes you uncomfortable but the key is just to stay calm and answer honestly. Other interviewers are sweet and friendly.
