    Project Engineer/Field Engineer Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ExxonMobil in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a screening interview at a prior military hiring conference. The interview lasted 45 minutes starting with me telling about myself. The interviewer did most of the talking and me asking most of the questions. One month later they contacted me for a follow up interview. Another month later the follow up interview process started. First, I had dinner with two Project Engineers the evening before the interviews. On the actual interview day, I had breakfast with Project Engineers as they were explained the benefits to me. The remainder of the day was back to back interviews with several people. Since I already have work experience, the interview questions were geared more towards my past work history and background. My final interview ended with the interviewer telling me that an offer will be sent. Two weeks later, I received the official offer.

    Laboratory Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paulsboro, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paulsboro, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a lab technician position at the research and engineering facility. The full interview process lasted 2.5 hours. I met with two teams of two people each. The first team consisted of department supervisor and the person who would be my immediate supervisor. The second team consisted of other upper level management personnel who I would interact with on a regular basis.

    The first hour of the interview I felt relaxed. We discussed the position and the requirements of the position. After reviewing the details the interviewers wanted to know more about myself. This was probably the easiest part to the interview. The Interviewers like to ask question regarding Education and Focus on your current or previous job.

    The second hour I had the pleasure of meeting with personnel with whom I would interact with on a daily basis. This group of interviewers asked question about my previous work experience. Following that we dove into the behavioral question regard conduct. The questions are rather easy to answer.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question we posed more as a joke to test knowledge regarding distillation process of the Refinery. Considering My previous job I was a chemical process operator I was asked to describe the distillation process used in oil refinement.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    Initial phone interview followed by onside visit in a couple weeks ... Interview focused my previous experience and my technical skills ... Very few behavior based questions ... Had five individual interviews ... Most of the questions were easy ... Got the impression they were more interested if I was fit for the group as opposed to my capabilities .

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    I was hired through a head hunter contact. I wasn't looking to work here. It just happened to be the right time, the right place, the right needs and skill sets.

    Interview Questions
    • There were none- straight forward old fashioned interview   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The head hunter did all the negotiating. And did a great job. I didn't mention salary. When they asked me what I wanted, I, nicely, stated that I don't talk money, they need to discuss it with the head hunter who would be doing the negotiating. The more I got, the more commission they would get. We both benefited.
