    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Southampton, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The recruitment process consists of 4 different stages: online application, online test(numerical), Skype interview then a final interview at the Fawley site.

    I successfully completed the online application and online test and was invited to a Skype interview two weeks later.

    The evening before my Skype interview around 11pm, I was informed that my Skype time had been moved around due to logistical errors, I was fine with this.

    I completed the Skype interview and was told they would get back to me within a few weeks. I thought the interview went well.

    After 5 weeks and receiving no feedback on how the Skype interview, I sent an email to the recruitment team asking for an update on my application. I didn't receive a reply to my email.

    I sent a second email two weeks later with no reply and a third email a week after the second email , to which they finally replied with a message that there had been no update to my application.

    Out of curiosity, I checked my online portal to find that my application status had been changed to 'Withdrawn Application' ,even though I had not withdrawn my application, it seemed a little peculiar.

    After 15 weeks from the time of my Skype interview, I sent a final email requesting feedback (bearing in mind that I had started to receive final interview offers from other companies), less then 24 hours later I received an automated email saying that my application had been unsuccessful. I checked my online application status and it had changed to 'No Longer in Consideration for this Position'.

    When compared to the recruitment process of other companies in the same industry, I feel that Exxon Mobil could treat their potential employees with a little bit more respect in regards to reasonable updates on applications, and constant communication with HR, considering that they are in the Times Top 100 for graduate employees.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Provo, UT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Met campus recruiter; interviewed the next week by people from HR on campus. Overall a good experience but the competition was great and the internships few. I didn't get an offer but they said I was very close to moving on to the next round. The next round would have been a phone interview with an HR person from the plant I would be working at.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in August 2015.

    Interview

    Not too terrible but I do get nervous easily. They are one on one, well the one I had. For the most part it's the typical behavioral based questions. Make sure to shake the interviewer's hand like you mean it.
