    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Apprenticeship program. Applied online sometime late 2014 and scheduled a testing date. Took the test in January or early February with at least 100-200 people and a couple weeks after received an email to set up interview date.
    Interview was 2 parts, each with 2 interviewers in the room. Diverse group of interviewers. There were many interviews going on, & it made me feel like I was auditioning for a tv show or something. The interviewers were kind and surprisingly down to earth, I was very nervous but they made me reasonably comfortable.
    The first part was mainly "about me" questions: job history, education, and how have I've handled situations in the past. Second part was situational questions with many different scenarios. "How would you handle..." etc type questions.

    The entire process has been the longest I have waited to start a new job, but well worth it. Still waiting to start at the end of July. Very thankful!

    Dropped my resume off at our campus career fair. Received a call and scheduled an on campus interview with one of their recruiters. Basic behavioral interview that lasted approximately one hour. The majority of the interview was spend discussing my prior internships, extra curricular activities, and research. Received a call about a week later and scheduled an on site interview for the following week. The on site interview included five interviews: two behavioral with supervisors, one technical with a technical expert, one with HR, and one with an executive. The whole day ran from about 7-2 including lunch with new hires and breakfast with a host. Received an offer two days later. The whole process took about 3 weeks from initial interview to offer letter.

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    It seemed to me that they were looking for a candidate who could handle change. I had at least four questions about handleing change, all of them just worded differently. They had also the traditional behavioral questions. Anyways I didn't get past the first interview but I wasnt so stoked about being paid a lot of money to be in a career that didn't interest me much.
