    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied via my school career portal, and never once spoke to a recruiter. Received an email a week later about an information session and setting up an interview time. The two recruiters were interviewing for full time and part time positions, 32 candidates in total.

    The interview itself is purely behavioral questions. Nothing crazy, generic preparation and going through common Exxon questions will be very helpful. It seemed like that they were really looking for engineers with business concentrations, all of the prior year internships were given to integrated degree students.

    I heard back a few weeks later through an automated message that I did not receive a position referral.

    Interview

    I applied through my college and submitted a candidate profile through their website. Within a week, I was invited to an interview on campus. The questions were mostly behavioral based and were not too difficult to answer. The internship did require relocation. I did not receive an offer, but it was an overall pleasant experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Last year on November, I got a phone call a day before the interview when I was on one of the conferences. It was my first interview ever therefore I am nervous and I was preparing the whole night. The interviewer is very nice and it was a relaxing interview. It basically go through what I have on my resume. However, I was not prepared to answer in depth on my resume. Since he is an engineer, he asked me to explain the entire process to him and listing the name of every essential substances that I have worked in my research. Since I was not able to answer fluently, I think I did bad on my interview. In addition, they are not hiring any summer internship since it was all full. They were looking for spring co-op. This interview is not really a hiring interview but more like a casual review of your resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Submitted an application through my university careers site, obtained an interview. Very formatted and scripted interview; interviewer asked personality questions off a pre-made list essentially from the beginning since it was "company protocol". The interviewer was nice but somewhat reserved/uninterested, and I had to make a very conscious effort to keep the conversation going.
