    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Marathon Petroleum.

    Interview Details

    I went to a Marathon table at my school's job fair and they said they were looking for interns. I was excited because I was looking for an internship so I gave them my resume. A week or so later, they emailed me to do a HireVue interview online where I recorded my answers. About a week after I recorded my answers they sent me an email asking me for my transcripts. I sent them, and only a couple days later they gave me an offer. I thought it was weird that they offered the internship to me without having someone ever talk to me in person or ask me any questions that were not through a computer screen.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Marathon Petroleum.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with HR recruiter and department supervisor. The first set of questions will most likely come from HR and will include your basic interview questions i.e. strengths, weaknesses, "tell a time that you were faced with adversity in the work place and how did you overcome it", etc, etc. If you look up basic interview questions and rehearse before the interview, one should be prepared for HR questions. Expect a lot of questions from your resume.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Salary is pretty much predetermined for the position based on a couple of factors i.e. experience, gpa, and department.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Marathon Petroleum.

    Interview Details

    I had an in-depth phone interview with them due to my location. It was very behavioral intensive. They asked me a lot of questions about my work experience, examples of working on a team, examples of how I found solutions to various problems, how my work experience has helped me develop, and even questions about my transcript. There were no technical questions, but the questions were still very tiring, and I felt like I was getting grilled for a lot of things.

    Reasons for Declining

    Location was too much of an inconvenience, got a more relevant part-time job closer to home with a better company in my opinion. I also felt that Marathon was a bit pompous in how prominent of a company they are.
