Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bakersfield, CA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Bakersfield, CA) in February 2013.

Interview

The interview was great the only thing is that it is a bit difficult. You really have to be focused on why you are there and what you are there for. Although it looks easy, it really isn't. It takes time to get into the process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Tuscaloosa, AL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career page. I heard back within a few days about an on campus interview. I thought the interview went well but didn't hear anything back. I emailed my interviewer inquiring how the process was going and got no response. Finally after a month, I got a very generic rejection email.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very standard behavioral interview - no technical questions were asked. Interviewer was especially interested in my past work experiences in the petroleum field. The interview itself lasted around 40 minutes and was a very standard process. Be prepared to go in depth over your previous work experiences. I heard back from the recruiting team about 3 weeks later.

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
