Engineering Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Gainesville, FL).

Interview

I went to an on campus information session and then spoke to a recruiter at the career fair. I was contacted for an interview a few days later. The interview was behavioral based, but my interviewer wanted very specific information and numbers for each answer. Overall, my interactions with ExxonMobil were pleasant and I would apply again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2015.

    Interview

    Interview focused on behavioral questions involving problem solving, relationships, and other resume related topics. A lot of questions on overcoming adversity. Interview was very structured with little opportunity to expand on personal job qualities outside the strict questions. Overall a good interview, however, it felt rather intimidating even for a highly qualified candidates.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Raleigh, NC) in February 2015.

    STARS questions. Was very interested in manufacturing experience and asking about any possible gaps in work history. Reviewed my resume during the interview and drew a lot of questions there, so making sure you know your resume inside and out and can figure out what types of questions they will ask will be helpful.
