Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX) in July 2008.

Interview

Simple behavior based interview. 3 people, each tasked to ascertain one component. Leadership, Analytical Skills, and Drive/Flexibility. Have multiple examples in mind for each of the above. Internet research will provide loads of behavior based interview example questions. Try to mention safety. Focus on your contribution. Use the situation, issues, action model.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about a time you showed leaderhip when a project had gone wrong.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Do not negotiate. Any concessions are superficial and will only be eroded by the normal system. You are better off negotiating on start date or preferred first assignment content. Seek early international exposure, even if you are doing it from Houston. Ensure that you are prepared to commit lots of time and effort in first year - this is critical to long term success in the company. Good people get good jobs get good reviews, and the cycle continues.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Fairfax, VA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Applied online, had first interview on campus, one on one. Normal behavior questions: "tell me about a time when..." Interviewer was looking for a "Go-getter" who would be a good leader.
    Two weeks after first interview, flew to Fairfax, interviewed on site. Dinner the night before with other recruits and senior execs, mingling, chit chat environment. Next day consisted of a presentation to the recruits about ExxonMobil, then three one on one interviews with three senior execs. Focus was on demonstrated analysis experience and leadership roles.
    Got offer within 24 hours of second interview. Had three weeks to accept.

    • Why do you want to work in the energy industry?   Answer Question
    • Do you think it is best for oil to be priced high or low?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    ExxonMobil does not negotiate salary, they feel that the offer they give is fair and may be offended if you try to negotiate. Possible other areas of negotiation are vacation days/relocation, but I didn't try to negotiate this.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had a initial, behavioral interview with two Exxon recruiters on campus right after my school's career fair. They will ask you to use the STAR method to answer their questions, so definitely familiarize yourself with that prior to the interview.

    Overall, the questions were straightforward, nothing tricky, but be prepared to elaborate on your experiences and answer multiple follow up questions. My interview lasted around 45-50 minutes.
