    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Applied on-line. Online tests and then very quick response for a telephone interview and then an on-site interview. Telephone interview was around 25min and the on-site interview was with two interviewers and lasted around 50min. Both were focused on competency questions on a range of competencies the company values.

    Very friendly process but the face-to-face interview involved a lot of travel for just one interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was told to speak with them at the career fair by a recruiter. Immediately was scheduled an on campus interview. This was basic STAR questions. Then received a phone call from a manager to see if I would be interested in her department. I flown down for an on site interview. The first night was dinner with a new engineer. The next day was very long and you had to be on your game at all times. I had two technical interviews. They want you to be crazy smart, personable, but also like the people in the department. It took at least a month for me to hear back.
