Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spring, TX
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Spring, TX) in October 2016.

Interview

Junior (peer) interviewer greeted me in the lobby. Hiring manager arrived fifteen minutes late. But both interviewers were aloof and distracted, and they spoke to each other (kidding around, essentially) in front of me, making me feel uncomfortable.

When the first interviewer asked where I'd parked, (in the garage indicated in the pre-interview email they'd sent) she continued, "Oh that's right, I got a notification when you entered the campus and I could see how long it took you to reach the garage." Why she shared this with me I don't know.

A good portion of the interview questions were closed-ended (so you would really want to drive all the way up here [12 miles] to work?) or worded so specifically that they were hard to relate to my experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Basic situational interview questions. Nothing tricky. It was almost completely behavioral based. It was more of a review of the resume and experience. Ultimately, it was designed to determine fit with ExxonMobil culture. Surprisingly non-intimidating, and one of the more pleasant interviewing experiences.

    Interview

    0. Applied for the career talk online in July. Got an invitation in August. HR always inform later than they first said they would be, so dont panic if you dont receive a response as they first promised.
    1. Invited to the career talk. Candidates were separated into two groups according to what they applied for, aka commercial/technical role. Spent as long as I could there to talk to people. If you applied for commercial, stick to commercial managers as they might just be your interviewer or future boss.
    2. Invited to first round interview at hbf. Three team supervisors were at the interview. Questions were situational and behavioral. Met one of the managers I talked to from the career talk in this round.
    3. Invited to second round at hbf. Three department heads were at the interview. Questions were one a higher scale, economy, markets, personal development goals. Internship and cca project related questions were more in depth. Met another one of the managers I talked to.
    4. Got offered by Thai HR through a phone call.

    Interview Questions

    • 1.1. Experience working in team/difficulties encountered.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Bangkok (Thailand)) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed on campus in the U.S. at first, as they came to recruit mostly chemical engineering major. As a chemical engineering and economics double major, I told them that I am interested in both an engineering and a business analyst position. It was a basic, 45 minutes behavioral interview. They told me that they will keep my record on file. Around a month later, HR from Thailand, my home country, emailed me stating their interest to pursue my candidacy. I flew back home to Thailand during school break, and interviewed with them. The interview was one hour, 3 people on the panel, and they asked me basic behavioral questions, mostly stuff from my resume but also things like team working and leadership skills.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you please tell me a time when you had faced a difficult situation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate, as they told me that the compensation is already competitively matched with other firms in the city.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Breda (Netherlands)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Het gesprek zelf was redelijk informeel en meer een bespreking van je CV en persoonlijkheid. Er werden geen moeilijke vragen gesteld en achteraf werd aangegeven dat dit gesprek niet doorslaggevend is. Achteraf wordt pas gekeken naar je "extra curricular activities". Verder is het heel belangrijk om duidelijk te maken dat je bereid bent te verhuizen binnen de EU of zelfs over heel de wereld.
