    Chemical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through college's career services website and was given an interview before the annual career fair.

    The interview consisted mainly of behavioral questions, 'tell about a time you...' and lasted over an hour. The representative I met with was very professional and a little stuffy, but some of the others seemed to be joking around with their interviewees. Exxon went through many interviews. In the hour-long timeslot there were around 5 interviews being held simultaneously in different rooms, and spread that across 5 days of interviewing.

    Most of the questions they asked had to deal with my previous work on projects, so I would recommend having something to talk about on that end. As I applied just entering my sophomore year, I really only had a simple freshman design project to talk about, so I think somebody who has had previous internship/project experience would do well.
