Engineer Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX).

Interview

I applied through my university in 2017. Process took about six weeks total. First was a 45 minute on campus interview with standard behavioral questions. Exxon uses a lot of STAR method questions, and the interviews are very standardized across the company.

I was then called a few weeks later and invited to Houston, where I met with a host and had 3 interviews throughout the day, all behavioral again. Everyone there was very nice, but it was honestly difficult trying to figure out what position I was actually interviewing for since Exxon likes to interview people for many things at once.

    Interview

    I had an on-campus behavioral interview following a resume submission online. Interviewer did not seem interested at all, nor did he make any eye contact throughout the interview. Definitely an unwelcoming experience.
