    Global Real Estate and Facilities (GREF) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spring, TX

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Several recruiters came to my colleges career fair. I got an in campus interview and got an email 13 days later saying I made it through to the next round and somebody would reach out to me. 19 days later somebody reached out to me scheduling a phone interview. This took place the same day and was really like a phone screening to make sure I didn't get this far by accident. I was told on the phone I made it through to a business line interview and somebody would reach out to me. 3 days later my big phone interview was scheduled. The phone interview was laid back but fairly difficult and lasted an hour. 6 days later I was called down to Houston and was flown down a week from then. They take VERY good care of their candidates, and I don't want to spoil the surprise.

    The interview in Houston was long and intense, I won't lie, but all of the questions were valid. Everybody was very kind, especially Karen.

    I got a call 45 minutes after I left the interview telling me I got the job and to expect an email shortly. The compensation is very fair.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    I was hired through a head hunter contact. I wasn't looking to work here. It just happened to be the right time, the right place, the right needs and skill sets.

    Interview Questions
    • There were none- straight forward old fashioned interview   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The head hunter did all the negotiating. And did a great job. I didn't mention salary. When they asked me what I wanted, I, nicely, stated that I don't talk money, they need to discuss it with the head hunter who would be doing the negotiating. The more I got, the more commission they would get. We both benefited.
