Interview

Did not have hard interviews, until it was the last interview. Already had experience in the position they were looking for. They want leaders and people who will help the company grow in the direction of leadership (i.e. against all competitors).
Had a friendly recruiter and they took us out to dinner before the main on-campus interview.
No presentations either.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil (Tempe, AZ) in November 2011.

    Interview

    One interview that lasted roughly 1 hour. The questions were very subjective which consisted primarily of behavioral and situational questions (i.e., describe a time when you had to deal with a stressful situation, ... a time when you didn't know the answer, ... deal with ambiguity).

    Overall, it was an easy interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Exxon got my resume through a job fair, the first round of interview was on campus the next day. It was a mix of both technical skills and personality fit. I next got a call after about 2 months with an invitation for an onsite interview. The interview day was presentation followed by 1:1 interviews. Work culture seemed relaxed, everyone I met had a separate room for an office! The technical interview was a breeze but the work did not seem exciting, this probably came across.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in April 2009.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruitment agency and had an initial phone interview. After one week they called me and told me to come for an interview in ExxonMobil. It took around 1.5 hour. I was interviewed by HR representant and Manager of Engineering team. HR asked typical questions: describe a situation when you had a problem with your collegue, and how you handled it, describe a situation when you had to make a difficult decision, describe a situation when you had to cooperate with the others to accomplish a task... Manager asked questions related to the position and checking my knowledge. They also asked me in the end why I chose ExxonMobil.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation when you had to make a split second decision   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate within reasonable limits. They asked me what were my financial expectations.
    I told them "around XXX but I am flexible because I like the position". And in the end I got even more :)
    If they ask you about your financial expectations try to be precise and give a reason (e.g. I live out of the city and would have to commute everyday, etc)

    Interview

    Very friendly interviewer. She told me a lot about what she does at Exxon, and even her involvement in the community. After introducing herself, she asked a variety of questions. Most seemed to be related to teamwork and conflicts. It seemed very easy to talk to her because it was very personal and relaxed.
