I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Shell.
The process went very smoothly. Was contacted by a recruitment coordinator from the Houston office who helped set up my travel arrangements, and invited to the office for a two hour interview. The bulk of the interview was case-based, with a number of questions asking to identify stakeholders and provide strategies for addressing a certain problem at hand. The interviewers were very kind and accommodating.

I applied online – interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in March 2014.
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???)

Two part assessment - First Assessment occurred during the initial application phase, which was pretty straightforward to assess if your working style matches with that of the company. The second was an assessment of each department and had a quantitative test.
- The overall quantitative test because there were 10 or so long word problems and about 10-15 minutes to complete them and the questions seemed more for individuals who majored in finance. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Shell (Warrendale, PA).
Very disorganized interview process. Interview setup after holiday weekend, HR rep did not properly communicate to interviewing team. Showed up to Shell, interviewers not expecting to interview, not prepared. After interview spoke with HR rep, instead of scheduling proper interview decided to end process. Unprofessional, disorganized, and disrespectful of interviewees time.
- Interviewers were not prepared, no off the wall questions. General questions about experience. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in February 2014.
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.
