    I interviewed through other source - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    In all of their pages you can find: "ExxonMobil is an Equal Opportunity Employer." Yet, they do not accept applications from engineering student studying at California State Universities, as if the higher tuition defines higher knowledge. Very disappointing.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was on Campus interview. I applied through university career service online and then filled out application on Exxonmobil.com. The interview was about one hour. Most questions are about the research I have done for my PhD. Only about 5-6 behavior questions in the whole process. I was told that they would contact me in a week or two. However, I never heard from them since then. I guess I did get the opportunity to the next round.
