    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fawley, Hampshire, South East England, England (UK)
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 phone interviews with a consultant company. ExxonMobil typically does not hire direct IT support techs. Made it to face to face interview with Team Lead and via conference call the IT Manager on a Friday. Nothing difficult from a technical standpoint. Was offered the job on Monday.

    Interview Questions

    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I came on to Exxon straight out of college. The interview process for college grads comes in three steps. The first is the initial screening of the resume. You can have to apply online, but going to the career fairs and knowing someone in the company that's hiring at the time helps so much.The initial interview is purely to see if you would be a good fit in Exxon or not. If you pass this round you get placed in an Exxon hiring database and individual Exxon departments (they call them "companies") can select you for their interview process, which usually consists of flying you out to one of their locations for an in-person interview (I had three interviewers, all behavioral questions). Overall, the process was extremely satisfying. Exxon has a lot of money to throw around, and they really treat you well during the whole interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • Again, none of the questions I was given were technical; they were all behavioral. The most unexpected question that I had was "How do you persuade someone to do what you want or agree with your idea". I found the question difficult mostly because it is really easy to come off as manipulative and not a team player when answering this.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    All behavioral questions, funny enough. The most technical thing they asked me was about my previous internship experience. I went to the mix and greet dinner the night before, and everyone working there seemed EXTREMELY happy BUT preoccupied with how much money they were making there.

    Contact Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the company job portal for campus recruitment. Shortlisted individuals were invited for a networking session, and it was followed by a 1st round interview 1-2 weeks later. The 1st round interview generally revolved around what was written in the resume submitted, and they do probe deep into details so it pays to be familiar with things you included in your resume.

    There was a plant tour before the 2nd round interview to give us an idea of the company's operations. The 2nd round interview had a good mix of technical and behavioural questions, and really forces you to think on the spot. But the interviewers were generally friendly and the whole experience was pleasant.

    Both rounds of interviews lasted between 30-40 minutes.
