Process Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2014.

Interview Details

I was told to speak with them at the career fair by a recruiter. Immediately was scheduled an on campus interview. This was basic STAR questions. Then received a phone call from a manager to see if I would be interested in her department. I flown down for an on site interview. The first night was dinner with a new engineer. The next day was very long and you had to be on your game at all times. I had two technical interviews. They want you to be crazy smart, personable, but also like the people in the department. It took at least a month for me to hear back.

    The application process is a 2 round process. In the first interview there are 2 people, one from HR and one technical engineer. During this first interview they ask some competency based questions and also some questions like why Exxon, what motivates you. Besides this i got also a technical question concerning the site. In the second interview, you'll meet your supervisor.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of a phone screening by a senior designer followed by the 2nd round site visit.

    The phone screening was about 45 min long and the interviewer asked basic technical questions trying to get a measure of my technical skills.

    The site visit took about 2 - 2.5 hours. I was interviewed by three individuals separately; the section supervisor, a senior designer, followed by the group manager. Both supervisors asked basic questions such as why you were looking for another job, why Exxon, questions about career aspirations. Some scripted questions were asked. The senior designer asked questions related to the experiences shown on my resume. He also asked me to solve 3-4 prepared problems trying to get a measure of my technical skills.

    Interview Questions
    • Solving the prepared technical problems was definitely the most difficult portion of the interview. Either you can solve it or not, either way, show case what you know.   Answer Question

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

    Interview Details

    They brought me in for an interview after I had applied for an on campus interview. The interview was an hour long and I talked one on one with my interviewer. The questions I was asked were mostly behavioral - what was the biggest challenge you've faced in a project that you have worked on, what are you biggest strengths and biggest weaknesses, etc. I was not asked any technical questions. They let me know I would be receiving an answer about whether or not I was chosen for a second interview within 2 weeks and were very cordial.

    Applied through the campus recruitment that EM conducted. We were told that there's 2 face-to-face interviews. We will get the job offer if we pass the 2 rounds of interviews. For my first round of interview, 2 engineers from the technical department interviewed me. It lasted for about 30-40 mintues. The questions were rather typical and predictable.
