    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    The interview began with a phone interview, then progressed to a on-site interview with several one-on-one meetings to assess personality fit, along with a technical presentation. The interview process was largely driven by the interviewee asking questions about the company. The interviewers seemed to place a lot of emphasis on company fit rather than simply technical skill. There were a lot of behavioral type questions, and the employees all seemed to enjoy working with the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First interview was through campus recruiting. Then had a business line interview over the phone and a third interview with an employee in the department also over the phone. You have to have strong grades, exhibit leadership qualities, and be confident in yourself. Interviews are more behavioral based, and they're logic is that they'll teach you the ExxonMobil ways of accomplishing your tasks.

    Interview Questions

    • Why ExxonMobil?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when you were faced with adversity on a team, and how you mitigated that problem.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As an intern, negotiating wouldn't have been smart. I was thankful for the opportunity, and the pay leaves little more to be desired.

    On site interview at college. Consisted of one - on - one interview with recruiter. Standard interview questions focusing for a short time on resume.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    Long interview process. Very scenario based questions. Exxon Mobil likes to pick candidates with high academics and a strong experience background. First there is a phone screen, then an in person interview. Spend a day interviewing with a few different people. They usually take you out to lunch as well. Follow-up with a personal message to your interviewers.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Huge interest in safety experience and past safety culture. Industry specific experience is a huge leg up. Military experience also goes a long way. As long as you keep it formal, there is nothing too challenging or structured about the interview. Will interview with several people. You get ask questions as well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Pensacola, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty basic interview. They probably interviewed at least twenty people for the position, but it seemed they already had a buddy in mind for the job and interviewed other people just so it didn't look obvious. This is a company where you need to know someone to have a shot.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    No questions were asked. I was expected to do all the questioning. It was more like me interviewing the recruiters. The tech lead didn't show any kind of interest and left within the first 2 minutes. I want to remind big companies that employees should also be impressed (its a two way road) this, if the want production to be efficient.
