I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX).
I applied online, and was chosen for an on-campus interview. Once I did that, they called me up for an SRD. I turned it down twice due to scheduling, but finally they called me a third time and I went.
- It was a rapid firing of questions, but overall not too difficult. Just be sure to prepare plenty of stories for the different behavioral questions that they would ask you. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I 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.

Just first round

I applied online. I 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???)
- What 'kind' of person are you? Answer Question

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. I 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
