MBA - Global Marketing Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Exxon Mobil 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

Planner and Scheduler Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Exxon Mobil.

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.

Interview Question – Which software is better? Microsoft Project or Primavera?   Answer Question

Reason 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.
