    I was applying for an internship. I had an on campus interview where the guy seemed very disinterested in what I had to say and asked me the same question twice. Obviously he did not care about the interview and I got a job based off my resume.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Extremely generic interview process. Every interview was a pure behavioral interview with standard questions like "tell me about a time...".

    Very unstructured. Interviewers were not prepared.

    Geoscience Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    There was one interview only. The structure was half discussion about items on my resume and half STAR questions. The interviewer wrote down almost every response I had, and also took notes about my attire, smiling, general disposition. He wrote almost 2 pages of notes in the hour session. He gave me a combination of specific situation questions and open-ended questions that allowed me to talk about any achievement or experience I had in mind. Some people warned me that my particular interviewer was very mechanical or impersonal, but I felt he was very professional and was personal enough. I really enjoyed speaking with him.

    Interview Questions
    • After a set of specific questions, he asked: "Ok now while I write down some notes, I'd like to come up with a few items that we may have missed. Anything at all you want to mention."   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Dropped my resume off at our campus career fair. Received a call and scheduled an on campus interview with one of their recruiters. Basic behavioral interview that lasted approximately one hour. The majority of the interview was spend discussing my prior internships, extra curricular activities, and research. Received a call about a week later and scheduled an on site interview for the following week. The on site interview included five interviews: two behavioral with supervisors, one technical with a technical expert, one with HR, and one with an executive. The whole day ran from about 7-2 including lunch with new hires and breakfast with a host. Received an offer two days later. The whole process took about 3 weeks from initial interview to offer letter.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Only had 3 years experienced. Pretty simple. Basic questions involving planning and scheduling principles, how you used them, EVM, programs you used, etc. I was interviewed by phone first, then invited for face to face. They both had several members that works in the department that interviewed me, along with HR person.

    Reasons for Declining

    At the time i was interviewed, i was also interviewed by competitor. I felt as i didnt "fit" in as well as i did with their competitor. Benefits, pay, etc. were excellent though the competitor was just about the same..they both had cons/pro's.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Predominantly recruit through university relations. Preliminary campus interviews lead to second round interviews, usually on the phone. On-line applications are accepted, but didn't seem to be very common. Applicants to other ExxonMobil affiliates (EM Chemicals, Downstream, etc.) can be considered as well

    Interview Questions
    • First round interview is mostly behavioral with some open-ended technical questions. Answers should emphasize individual accomplishments.
      Second round is more personal, understanding if you would mesh well with the company.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As an intern, it would be very presumptuous to negotiate.
