    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX).

    Interview

    Straight forward, pretty easy and laid back. People were really nice and put you at ease. Met with multiple people in separate rooms one after the other. Once done you wait for a call from someone in Hr and an email offering you a position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview was behavioral. They asked a series of questions regarding past experience and performance. I had a three panel interview everyone was very nice and professional.

    Laboratory Technician Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    No questions were asked. I was expected to do all the questioning. It was more like me interviewing the recruiters. The tech lead didn't show any kind of interest and left within the first 2 minutes.

    I want to remind big companies that employees should also be impressed (its a two way road) this, if the want production to be efficient.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Took the Operations and Mechanical test. Passed. Got called in for first round of interviews. You do a scenario and background interview. During the scenario one they ask a lot of what ifs. This should be common sense if you've worked in an industrial environment. They just sit there and read questions out of a book. The background interview is where they go over education and work history. It's a little more personal, but still scripted. You get called back for a final interview. This one is with the 1st and 2nd line supervisors. This is the make or break. Basically you just sit in an office and talk with them. They are still reading from a packet, but they do ask questions off the cuff. If you get the job, you get a call back. If you don't, they mail you a letter. After you get the call back, you go in for your physical. Pretty standard stuff there.

    Interview Questions

    • You see two guys replacing a car window in the parking lot after work. They are breaking it with a hammer. What do you do?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The starting salary is set.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX).

    Interview

    the process is stringent and laborious. I don't think there have to be 4 separate interviews to identify if a candidate is worthy of a job offer. Clearly the need for minorities is represented in the hiring practices.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baytown, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX).

    Interview

    The process is quite intense. You are sent a testing link prior to interviewing. If you do not pass the initial test, you do not go any further in the process. The first interview is with Human Resources and a representative with the department for which you applied. If granted a second interview you will interview with your potential direct supervisor.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was about accountability. If you make a mistake are you accountable enough to recognize the mistake and correct the mistake.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was pleased with the initial offer. No negotiations needed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    They were great to work with throughout the whole process. Initially talked at my schools career fair, then had a 1:1 interview the next day. Was given a phone interview from the specific location I was interested in a couple of days later. Flown down for the final site interview the following week and given the offer on the spot during the 3rd and final interview of that day. Note - process was expedited as I had other offers that I was considering.

    On Campus Interview
    Phone Interview
    On Site Interview (4 interview)

    On campus interviews are relatively easy to get if you have solid resume. (high GPA, work experience etc.) It seems that all the interviews are processed into a large pool, which are accessible by managers of the site. Once the manager sees profile and like it, they will call you. All the interviews are very straight forward.
