    The process took 2 days - interviewed at ExxonMobil International in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    At the onsite visit there were three forty minute interviews with managers. These interviews consisted of multiple questions regarding behavior, leadership, and analytical skills, but they do not ask technical questions. The interviews are not bad at all. The managers are very personable and you have plenty of time in between them so you never feel rushed. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil International in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Talking with the procurement recruiter after my CV was passed around the company. had a phone interview. asked me to talk about my biggest struggles, how i overcame them, best professors in college, etc. first question off the bat was for me to tell them about myself. not a lot of feedback when it came to the interviewer listening, seemed very scripted and removed from the conversation. fairly impersonal.

    be sure to know the "Standard" interviewing questions and have very good answers ready for them.
