    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was told to speak with them at the career fair by a recruiter. Immediately was scheduled an on campus interview. This was basic STAR questions. Then received a phone call from a manager to see if I would be interested in her department. I flown down for an on site interview. The first night was dinner with a new engineer. The next day was very long and you had to be on your game at all times. I had two technical interviews. They want you to be crazy smart, personable, but also like the people in the department. It took at least a month for me to hear back.

    GREF Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Standard competency interview but strongly directed towards work experience rather than academic or extra curricular experiences. Frustrating to be told that they didn't want to hear any more of one aspect of my experience which I felt was more relevant to the question asked. I guess looking for a very specific type of candidate

    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.
