    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Shell in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview: was told they were not interested in talking about my work experience since they already had my resume (?). Fifteen minutes into the interview I was asked about what I liked about work, when I replied I enjoyed problem solving the interviewer immediately told me they were looking for someone who did not want challenging work and ended the interview. (What kind of company wants to hire someone who does want challenging work???)

    Shell Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Shell in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Took 2 online assessments and submitted my resume. Took another few months before I was scheduled for a phone interview. I passed the phone interview and was then invited to a Shell Recruitment Day in Houston, TX. You are asked to complete an eTray assessment which consists of a multiple choice section and a written section. Then, you have an interview about the eTray which you took. After that, you work on a group to solve a problem. You have a competency based interview, then a case study to complete. Challenging interview on all accounts.

    Information Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Shell.

    Interview Details

    I'm a college senior and was looking for a full-time position.

    The process had several parts:

    1. Online Application - Pretty standard application for any position. You upload your resume and fill out any pertinent information.

    2. Online Assessments - After the application, you get an email to take an online assessment. You are asked about different scenarios, and choose what you would do. Afterwards, you get another email to take a second assessment. This one was more mathematical. If you pass them, you move forward.

    3. On Campus Face to Face Interview - I was asked behavioral questions. The interviewer was very nice and enthusiastic about her career at Shell. Afterwards, I got an email saying that they were matching me to possible positions. I imagine this means I was on hold as they reviewed my qualifications.

    4. Shell Recruitment Day (SRD) - I was invited by email and asked to stay at a nice hotel for the night near Shell Headquarters so I could attend a pre-SRD presentation/information session, then a dinner with recent hires, and be at my best early the next morning for SRD. They fly you in if you live very far away, or get a car to pick you up if you're close enough. This day was not evaluated.

    The next day, I participated in the actual evaluated SRD event. The day consists of an online exercise, a group exercise, a case study presentation, and a final interview with two assessors.

    I really enjoyed it. It was an amazing experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Shell in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    First, apply online and if you meet the minimum requirements you will receive an e-mail to take the online assessment (which is difficult). If you pass you will be asked to complete a face-to-face or over the phone interview. If you pass that, then you will be invited to the Shell Recruitment Day where you must go through a series of group and individual case study analysis' and interviews. It was a challenging day but very enjoyable if you are right for the job. Best advice, just be yourself!
