    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Imperial Oil.

    Interview Details

    I got an opportunity through campus recruitment. Interview was pretty straight forward. All questions are based on behaviours. Most of questions are STAR format. The interview is for an hour long. An interviewer will write down your answers based on the information that you provide. The interviewer is not the one who makes a decision to be hired. HR department will decide based on your answer sheet.

    Interview Details

    Standard behavioral interview on campus. Interviewer was very nice and felt more like a friendly conversation than an interview. Interview was around 40 minutes and asked questions with an expected answer presented in the STAR format. They are definately big on grades as well as leadership and ability to adapt and learn quickly.

    Technical Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Imperial Oil.

    Interview Details

    I had very positive experience with my interviews. 2 steps process (3 steps if you count online application): 1st - 1 hr interview in a local office, 2nd - 2 interviews 1 hr each in Calgary office. I had all interviews with senior managers, who were very respectful and I'd even say supportive. in the beginning they clarified my resume, asked a few questions (it's a great moment to tell a nice story about yourself) and then continued with their typical interview (CAR or start model) explaining me beforehand how they would expect me to structure my answers.
    I'd say easy or hard questions depends on individual experience. I wasn't happy to repeat the same story, but other people might have more experience in this particular area (for example, sales), so they might even consider these questions easy.
    Everyone in the office tried to make us feel comfortable.
