Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Baytown, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – The process is quite intense. You are sent a testing link prior to interviewing. If you do not pass the initial test, you do not go any further in the process. The first interview is with Human Resources and a representative with the department for which you applied. If granted a second interview you will interview with your potential direct supervisor.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question was about accountability. If you make a mistake are you accountable enough to recognize the mistake and correct the mistake.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was pleased with the initial offer. No negotiations needed.

Intern Interview

Intern
Beaumont, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for an internship on the company's website and via NSBE through a scholarship opportunity. I was contacted by the Baton Rouge location within about 3 weeks after submitting an application. The process of setting up a phone interview took about a week. During the interview I was asked questions such as past leadership roles, most liked/disliked subject and why, and future goals and interests. I didn't hear back from Exxon for almost an entire two months. Then out of the blue, I was contacted by the Exxon Beaumont location so set up another interview. I was asked similar questions during this phone interview. Another 2 weeks passed by then I was asked if I would like to accept an offer to intern during the summer. This entire process (day of application submission to receiving an offer) lasted from October to December.

Interview Question – How have your leadership roles benefited you?   Answer Question

Geoscience Intern Interview

Geoscience Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.

Interview Details – There was one interview only. The structure was half discussion about items on my resume and half STAR questions. The interviewer wrote down almost every response I had, and also took notes about my attire, smiling, general disposition. He wrote almost 2 pages of notes in the hour session. He gave me a combination of specific situation questions and open-ended questions that allowed me to talk about any achievement or experience I had in mind. Some people warned me that my particular interviewer was very mechanical or impersonal, but I felt he was very professional and was personal enough. I really enjoyed speaking with him.

Interview Question – After a set of specific questions, he asked: "Ok now while I write down some notes, I'd like to come up with a few items that we may have missed. Anything at all you want to mention."   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation for the internship offer.

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Beaumont, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – Flown to Beaumont, TX for an interview. HR was great taking care of all the accommodations. Interview was a full day. Talked to potential co-workers as well as potential direct supervisor and his boss. Fairly technical questions and why I wanted to move to Beaumont, etc. Thought I was a shoo-in since I have family in Beaumont, and really, who wants to move to Beaumont? However, did not get job offer.

Interview Question – Really, no difficult questions.   Answer Question

Sales Engineer Interview

Sales Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – Took about a month from the initial interview. Asked a ton of behavioral based interview. They really want to see if you are a good fit for the company. The way the company operates is that they don't want to hire you for a job but a career. So make sure you know your resume front and back and can speak articulately about your experiences.
