    Mock Interviews Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Imperial Oil.

    Interview Details

    I participated in Mock interviews to prepare the company for on campus recruiting. Questions for interviews are all behavior based in nature. Such as "tell me about a time..." The interviewers were very good, and took notes throughout the interview. Some questions may be difficult for a new graduate to answer as they seemed experience based.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Imperial Oil.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college website. Got a face to face interview which lasted one hour. Very structured interview as the interviewer asked questiones from a booklet and filled it in each I answered. Sometimes there was awkward silence as I waited for him to finish filling the blanks. Overall, it was pretty serious.
