    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ExxonMobil in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very intense with a lot of questions. All competency based but some were very quirky I certainly hadn't answered them before. Make sure you know the ins and outs of your examples and can spin them. Was asked about 8 questions so have plenty in the bank! 2 assessors so think about who to address.

    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.
