Intern Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – I applied for an on-campus interview through the campus career services site during the annual recruitment and interview period. Met recruiter in person during scheduled interview days in student union. Duration was about one half hour, fairly typical one on one interview setup except for the approach the recruiter took.

Interview Question – The recruiter essentially just looked at my resume and picked things to ask me about; but focused on more minor extracurricular activities rather than on the relevant experience that I had. Differed from the typical behavioral interview in that I wasn't able to pick the best examples from all my experiences to answer questions, but was forced to discuss the topics that the recruiter chose.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – Interviewed via a one on one college recruiting event. There was an information session the night before. I would recommend going to this if it is available. Overall, the interview was casual and consisted of mostly "name a time when" type questions. I did not receive an offer, as they were primarily looking at graduate students.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – Was my first interview for an internship so I was not entirely sure what to expect. The interviewer was very professional - no deviation from the script. "The first question is... The second question is..." No real interaction/conversation between the two of us. Strictly questions and answers. All of the questions were behavioral, but I didn't have any experience at the time.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you demonstrated yourself as a leader in a culturally diverse environment? Tell me about a time where you resolved a conflict between you and a coworker?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – On campus interview. The interviewer was really nice and patient. We talked a lot about the coursework and the research experience I had within the past few years. I have really a lot of diverse and interesting research opportunities. After the interview, I haven't heard from them for the next round.

Interview Question – I would say it is pretty technical. The interviewer knows a lot about what he is dealing with, and I tried to sell my research ideas as much as possible.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – The process was relatively simple. I applied online through my university's career services website and ExxonMobil's website. Took about 3 weeks to hear back to be invited to an interview. The actual interview was more formal than other interviews and consisted of mainly behavioral questions. It took about 1 week to receive a follow-up letter from them letting me know that I would not proceed to the second interview round.

Interview Question – Describe a time you failed and how you overcame it?   Answer Question

Interview Details – Got an email from the head recruiter saying that the application deadline was coming up and that if the application was in by a certain date I would qualify for an early round interview.

The only questions were behavioral and about my resume.
