    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    Did not have hard interviews, until it was the last interview. Already had experience in the position they were looking for. They want leaders and people who will help the company grow in the direction of leadership (i.e. against all competitors). Had a friendly recruiter and they took us out to dinner before the main on-campus interview. No presentations either.

    Facilities Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

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