URC Summer Intern Interview

Interview Details – Submitted my resume through campus career fair. Got the interview a few weeks later. The interview lasted about 45 minutes with basic behavioral questions, like how to you handle deadlines, what is your expertise, describe your research experience and etc. Generally an easy interview. But I was told at the beginning that this is their informational interview, not job specific.

Facilities Engineer Interview

Facilities Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview Details – Multi-step interview process includes on-campus info session and interview, phone interview, and on-location interviews. EM does not specify job location and description until several months before start date - employees expected to accept a job based on company standing and lifetime career goals. Competitive interview and hiring process. Difficult to understand how one may fit into the confusing company structure.

Interview Question – Questions seemed similar to all foundational interviews - i.e. Describe a difficult work experience you've faced and how you mitigated the outcome; give examples of your various roles on different teams; what have you learned from working with other people on projects, etc   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was not an option - recruiter said that EM very rarely adjusts their offer.
