Baytown, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – the process is stringent and laborious. I don't think there have to be 4 separate interviews to identify if a candidate is worthy of a job offer. Clearly the need for minorities is represented in the hiring practices.

Project Engineer/Field Engineer Interview

Project Engineer/Field Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil in April 2014.

Interview Details – I had a screening interview at a prior military hiring conference. The interview lasted 45 minutes starting with me telling about myself. The interviewer did most of the talking and me asking most of the questions. One month later they contacted me for a follow up interview. Another month later the follow up interview process started. First, I had dinner with two Project Engineers the evening before the interviews. On the actual interview day, I had breakfast with Project Engineers as they were explained the benefits to me. The remainder of the day was back to back interviews with several people. Since I already have work experience, the interview questions were geared more towards my past work history and background. My final interview ended with the interviewer telling me that an offer will be sent. Two weeks later, I received the official offer.

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Baytown, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – The process is quite intense. You are sent a testing link prior to interviewing. If you do not pass the initial test, you do not go any further in the process. The first interview is with Human Resources and a representative with the department for which you applied. If granted a second interview you will interview with your potential direct supervisor.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question was about accountability. If you make a mistake are you accountable enough to recognize the mistake and correct the mistake.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was pleased with the initial offer. No negotiations needed.

Geoscience Intern Interview

Geoscience Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – There was one interview only. The structure was half discussion about items on my resume and half STAR questions. The interviewer wrote down almost every response I had, and also took notes about my attire, smiling, general disposition. He wrote almost 2 pages of notes in the hour session. He gave me a combination of specific situation questions and open-ended questions that allowed me to talk about any achievement or experience I had in mind. Some people warned me that my particular interviewer was very mechanical or impersonal, but I felt he was very professional and was personal enough. I really enjoyed speaking with him.

Interview Question – After a set of specific questions, he asked: "Ok now while I write down some notes, I'd like to come up with a few items that we may have missed. Anything at all you want to mention."   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation for the internship offer.
