    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA).

    Interview

    Applied through campus interview and attended information session before hand. Person interviewing me first asked me what my favorite class was and why and then least favorite and why. He then went straight to the behavioral questions. He said if I didn't have a great example he could skip to different question because he had a whole list of questions that were similar. I asked questions for about 15 minutes and then that was it. Haven't heard back from them so far.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career services then heard back that I received an offer. Only one person interviewd me and she was furiously writing the entire time which made it difficult to create a connection. MANY behavioral questions. It got to a point where it seemed like I was being asked the same question over and over so have a lot of examples ready in the back of your mind!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Apprenticeship program. Applied online sometime late 2014 and scheduled a testing date. Took the test in January or early February with at least 100-200 people and a couple weeks after received an email to set up interview date.
    Interview was 2 parts, each with 2 interviewers in the room. Diverse group of interviewers. There were many interviews going on, & it made me feel like I was auditioning for a tv show or something. The interviewers were kind and surprisingly down to earth, I was very nervous but they made me reasonably comfortable.
    The first part was mainly "about me" questions: job history, education, and how have I've handled situations in the past. Second part was situational questions with many different scenarios. "How would you handle..." etc type questions.

    The entire process has been the longest I have waited to start a new job, but well worth it. Still waiting to start at the end of July. Very thankful!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Casual, a bit awkward, but an overall good experience. a long process, and testing required. upper management has room for improvement for sure. The ExxonMobil supervisor I interviewed with was incredibly awkward and even told me, she was not a "people person" and didn't think much of conversation. I was like, "huh?" who says that, espically the SUPERVISOR interviewing someone?
