I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Exxon Mobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – Was my first interview for an internship so I was not entirely sure what to expect. The interviewer was very professional - no deviation from the script. "The first question is... The second question is..." No real interaction/conversation between the two of us. Strictly questions and answers. All of the questions were behavioral, but I didn't have any experience at the time.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you demonstrated yourself as a leader in a culturally diverse environment? Tell me about a time where you resolved a conflict between you and a coworker?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Exxon Mobil.

Interview Details – On campus interview. The interviewer was really nice and patient. We talked a lot about the coursework and the research experience I had within the past few years. I have really a lot of diverse and interesting research opportunities. After the interview, I haven't heard from them for the next round.

Interview Question – I would say it is pretty technical. The interviewer knows a lot about what he is dealing with, and I tried to sell my research ideas as much as possible.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Exxon Mobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – The process was relatively simple. I applied online through my university's career services website and ExxonMobil's website. Took about 3 weeks to hear back to be invited to an interview. The actual interview was more formal than other interviews and consisted of mainly behavioral questions. It took about 1 week to receive a follow-up letter from them letting me know that I would not proceed to the second interview round.

Interview Question – Describe a time you failed and how you overcame it?   Answer Question
