Intern Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil in November 2013.

Interview Details

I applied for an internship on the company's website and via NSBE through a scholarship opportunity. I was contacted by the Baton Rouge location within about 3 weeks after submitting an application. The process of setting up a phone interview took about a week. During the interview I was asked questions such as past leadership roles, most liked/disliked subject and why, and future goals and interests. I didn't hear back from Exxon for almost an entire two months. Then out of the blue, I was contacted by the Exxon Beaumont location so set up another interview. I was asked similar questions during this phone interview. Another 2 weeks passed by then I was asked if I would like to accept an offer to intern during the summer. This entire process (day of application submission to receiving an offer) lasted from October to December.

    Interview Details

    Very kind people there at Exxon Mobil. Interviewing process from my university was greatly appreciated as an opportunity to get into the field of oil and gas. I first interviewed in a general interview and then I had a second interview in which a facility called me and gave me another interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Predominantly recruit through university relations. Preliminary campus interviews lead to second round interviews, usually on the phone. On-line applications are accepted, but didn't seem to be very common. Applicants to other ExxonMobil affiliates (EM Chemicals, Downstream, etc.) can be considered as well

    Interview Questions
    • First round interview is mostly behavioral with some open-ended technical questions. Answers should emphasize individual accomplishments.
      Second round is more personal, understanding if you would mesh well with the company.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As an intern, it would be very presumptuous to negotiate.

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was on campus career fair. Got an call to schedule an interview that same day. Interview was about an hour long. Pretty relaxed interview, very conversational to start. STAR interview format, they ask you to name a situation and task and how you reacted in that situation. Fairly straightforward, no real curveballs. Asked about campus activities, biggest achievements, etc. Got a decision in a ~month's time. Although I believe they make their decision soon after the interview.
