    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was with a recruiter via e-mail. After a phone interview, they offered to bring me down for an on-site. Accommodations were excellent.

    The on-site interview process was very organized. My host was friendly, open with information, and never seemed to harried to accompany me from interviewer to interviewer.

    Although I was interviewing for a specific department, each interviewer was from a different discipline in the company. They all took the time to explain their roles and gauge my interest.

    None of the questions posed were terribly difficult or tricky. The interviews focused on whether or not I could perform the job with no pandering to tricky questions like "What is your greatest weakness?" If you have an excellent resume, then you can expect to do well if you can relate your experience to their needs, and they will expect you to do so.

    Geoscientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2007.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of two parts. One on one brief interview just to get acquainted to each other with further presentation in front of several decision-making persons.
    The first part was pretty stress free, more like informal one I'd say. However, the second part was a tough one. Because I have had to give a detailed overview of my undergraduate degree research project and answer some tricky question. But I passed the test successfully.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Exxon got my resume through a job fair, the first round of interview was on campus the next day. It was a mix of both technical skills and personality fit. I next got a call after about 2 months with an invitation for an onsite interview. The interview day was presentation followed by 1:1 interviews. Work culture seemed relaxed, everyone I met had a separate room for an office! The technical interview was a breeze but the work did not seem exciting, this probably came across.

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was ok. Lots of useless talk. Some pretty hard questions about technical aspects of the job. Two people interviewed me. Both were previously in the trade I was applying for. Fairly easy interview as long as you're relaxed and know you're stuff. They seem like they're there to spot the liars and fakes.

    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    The recruiters called me two weeks before the college career fair and told me to apply online. Then they called me and gave me a personal interview 2 days prior to the career fair. After a week I received an email notifying me that I was selected for a second round of interviews. Approximately after 2 weeks I received a phone call for another interview. That interview was approximately 1 hour long and it was about my interests, my experiences, and my short and long term goals. Then after two more weeks I received a second call for another interview. This one lasted approximately 30 mins. It was a more informal one, and it was to confirm my interests and to provide me insight about the company. Then after a week and a half I received a call providing me the final offer. As an advice I can say that you should not be impatient. Always trust in yourself and try to convinces the interviewer with facts. Another thing is to read about the company before they interview you, in that way you know what to talk and ask.

    The offer was too good to negotiate anything. An advice may be to be proud of what you studied and put yourself a price that you consider is your value after all the years studying and gaining experiences. With those facts you can negotiate offers and benefits.
