The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Shell.
Behavioral questions! I also learned some of shell And how people move around. The interviewer was forthcoming, and asked me to walk him through things step by step. I need to hit 30 words yet have naught more to say

I applied online. I interviewed at Shell.
The interview is a completely behavioral process. Definitely format your answers using STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) in order to effectively get your point across. The application online for the Assessed Internship is a general application to the internship where you'll input your preferences. You will also need to take two online assessments. They have practice assessments online that will familiarize you with the format.

A day before the SRD we had an orientation, games, and dinner with current Shell employee. On the SRD, the process begin with a computer knowledge test, followed by a group presentation, a one on one behavioral interview, lunch with the interviewers (none from HR but all from respective divisions of the candidates), case interview with 2 interviewers, and final behavioral interview.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Shell in September 2015.
I applied online and received an email the next day to complete an assessment as the next part of the process. There was a behavioral assessment and a mathematics assessment. Once I completed these two assessments, I received an email for an interview. The interview was 1-hour. Make sure you can elaborate on every experience they ask you about for 10 minutes each. They ask about 9 followup questions for each question. The questions became hard to answer because it felt like the answers had already been stated in the previous 8 questions they asked.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Shell (Rohnert Park, CA) in September 2015.
Quick easy had to go back three times but all I was asked was what my availability was. They were really needing to hire someone so I didn't really have to do much to get the job but I did have to keep going back to do the HR paperwork which was tiring.
- When are you available Answer Question
- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell in September 2015.
The interview consisted of around 15 behavioral interview questions. Did not ask any other types of questions. They wanted very specific answers and did not allow me to use the same scenario twice. The interview was not personal in any way. I didn't learn anything about Shell and I don't think they learned anything about me.
- Tell me about a time you faced opposition in a group work setting and how did you handle it? Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Shell (Deer Park, TX) in August 2015.
Really easy. I was only asked when I was available, and that was about it. I thought I was offered the job right then and there considering Crystal asked for my SSN and said she'd call me back when my background check results came back. I know I have a clear background. She talked me through the process of what i'd be doing when she was going to call me, she told me about training, but then she never called and when I called her and even left a message asking her to get back with me on the status of my application she never even called me back. Very unprofessional in my opinion and will not be applying again any time soon considering I was very excited that I had finally found a job after months of searching. A huge let down.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
First, I had to submit he application online through their employee referred website, then I took an online assessment. Once I passed that, I was invited to have a 1:1 interview with future manager, then after I passed that, I went to a group interview with HR and someone outside of the future organization. Long and hard!

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Shell (New Orleans, LA) in April 2015.
The phone was arranged four days in advance by another phone call from the interviewer. During this first initial call, I was asked one "very important question", "What does Shell believe to be most important?". After I answered he gave me the date and time for the phone interview. He stipulated that I must not be driving at the time and that he would prefer that I have a land line if possible. The interview lasted for 35 minutes. The questions were not focused on equipment operations or technical details.
