    Applied online and received a request for an interview through school job search page. Interviewed on site, was a very straight forward behavioral interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I went to career expo my sophomore year and talked to recruiter from ExxonMobil. In the afternoon, I received an email to sign up in the school's job database to sign up for interview. Two days after that, I had my interview with ExxonMobil on campus. The recruiters were really easy to talk to and my interviewer was super nice. She made the interview more like a casual talk rather than a formal interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions are behavior questions. The only one took my off-guard was why I picked my school and my major. I was inexperienced and didn't prepare for those questions.   Answer Question
