    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through a recruiter at a hiring conference. I was interviewing for 3 potential positions. Based on my preferences of big/small city, office/refinery, travel, etc... That narrowed down what specific position they would interview for. All three interviewers were polite/professional, and got right to the point.

    I was not selected for an on site follow on interview.

    They were primarily looking for leadership/project management.

    They asked about my strengths, I said I was analytical and they asked for an example where I applied it.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    the process is stringent and laborious. I don't think there have to be 4 separate interviews to identify if a candidate is worthy of a job offer. Clearly the need for minorities is represented in the hiring practices.
