Power Systems Engineer Interview

Power Systems Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – On campus interview. Made it to the process from good GPA. First round was mainly behavioral and talking about past projects. Lasted 45 minutes talking with a current engineer, young. At the end I didnt make it to second round since I am not US citizen.
I think that makes it easier for US citizens to get here

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – Got an email from the head recruiter saying that the application deadline was coming up and that if the application was in by a certain date I would qualify for an early round interview. The recruiter got my email through the career fair the previous year. The interviewer was super engaging and easy to talk to. No technical questions. The only questions were behavioral and about my resume.

Materials Engineer/Metallurgist Interview

Materials Engineer/Metallurgist
Worcester, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – During a career fair on campus at WPI I talked to some engineers from ExxonMobil. As a materials scientist with a PhD, I didn't expect to get anything out of it since they are mostly interested in chemical engineers but surprisingly I received a phone call two days later by an ExxonMobil recruiter to schedule an interview, on campus.

So, I accepted and three days later I was interviewed by Exxon's representative on campus. The interview was not based on technical questions at all. 100% behavioral questions, very much expected...Tell me about a time when you faced a challenging problem, how did you deal with it...what are the achievements you are mostly proud of...tell me about a time when you worked with other people in a group and you had to do something important to finish a project...stuff like that...

I think it went very well and if you are prepared to answer this questions you should not have any issues. The interviewer is very friendly and you will feel comfortable.

This was very recent, about a week ago so I am waiting for a phone call to see if they will call me for the next round. Usually, from what I have read, in the second round they will fly you to an Exxon's location for an on site interview.

That's all I have - I'll update if I make it to the second round.

Interview Question – There were no unexpected questions, all behavioral. Know your resume well in case you extend the discussion to the things you actually did.   Answer Question

MBA - Global Marketing Internship Interview

MBA - Global Marketing Internship
Houston, TX

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

Interview Details – I met the Exxon recruiters at a career fair and info session. They reviewed my resume and asked me to interview the next day. The interview was behavior based and was very results oriented. If I did not explicitly state, "the results of my actions were...", then the interviewer would ask "what was the result".

Interview Question – There were surprisingly a lot of questions related to coursework and classes (i.e. favorite class, most valuable course experience, proudest achievement in college). I found it odd that the answers were limited to specifically class examples and not also work experiences.   Answer Question
