    Application Details

    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.

    Senior Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Host takes the candidate for an informal dinner the night before the interview day. The day starts with about half an hour long overview about the company from human resources. This is followed by an hour long presentation by the candidate on his/her thesis work. The candidate is then escorted to a series of half hour long interviews by 4-5 senior technical folks before finally being interviewed by a director. An hour long facility tour and "how we work" session" is held with the host and a recent hire. Usually, all the interviewers get together that evening itself to give their nays and yeas.

    Interview Details

    Process began with an on-campus information session and career fair networking. I then applied for an interview and was accepted to that stage. The interview was behavioral, not technical. Questions were largely specific to my resume, and probing in the direction of leadership, teamwork, and challenging problem-solving.

    Facilities Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Multi-step interview process includes on-campus info session and interview, phone interview, and on-location interviews. EM does not specify job location and description until several months before start date - employees expected to accept a job based on company standing and lifetime career goals. Competitive interview and hiring process. Difficult to understand how one may fit into the confusing company structure.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions seemed similar to all foundational interviews - i.e. Describe a difficult work experience you've faced and how you mitigated the outcome; give examples of your various roles on different teams; what have you learned from working with other people on projects, etc   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was not an option - recruiter said that EM very rarely adjusts their offer.
