    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First interview was through campus recruiting. Then had a business line interview over the phone and a third interview with an employee in the department also over the phone. You have to have strong grades, exhibit leadership qualities, and be confident in yourself. Interviews are more behavioral based, and they're logic is that they'll teach you the ExxonMobil ways of accomplishing your tasks.

    Interview Questions

    • Why ExxonMobil?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when you were faced with adversity on a team, and how you mitigated that problem.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As an intern, negotiating wouldn't have been smart. I was thankful for the opportunity, and the pay leaves little more to be desired.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2014.

    I did not have any in-person contact with the interviews before the interview date. I was emailed about 10 days prior to the interview and told to pick a timeslot on my college career website. I just picked the time and it was approved. I showed up and participated in the 30 minute interview.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (El Paso, TX) in October 2010.

    Interview

    The interview took place at my University (UTEP) at the student union center. A current employee greeted me and took attendance of other students coming in to interview. While waiting she tried starting conversation with myself and the other students. Most of the questions had to do with her position and her past experiences.
    TIP:
    I took this first encounter as a pre interview so I was sure not to engage into mundane or complex conversation. I kept my words minimal but very engaging. Example: so how was your senior year (since she was an alumni). This seem to have work well since every time someone else would try to converse with her she would continue on with that conversation with me instead of the person who began it.

    When my interviewer was ready we went into a small (very small) room with a very small table with her chair and my chair directly across from one another. ( akward at first but I was slightly prepared since my communications teacher said that situation could happen). After all introductions were made she began to explain how the interview would go and that to expect any type of question at any time. Then disaster struck due to the actions of the university career center since they gave her a very outdated resume.
    TIP:
    HAVE AN EXTRA RESUME OR ANY INFORMATION DOCUMENT IN HAND I was already prepared and had my current resume with me but be sure to do the Sam as well but let them ask if they want it in my case she needed it.

    After I cleared up the confusion we had a laugh (seeing how the old resume had my experience making pizzas) and that mishap was a good icebreaker for the interview to start. She had documents with questions that focused and the kind of person I am and my behavioral tendencies.
    TIP:
    Know before hand times where you made good decisions bad decisions, how you resolved conflict with others etc be sure to put in details that show how your thought process went and paraphrase technical parts ( as you may not be interviewing with someone in a similar field in my case she was civil engineering and I am electrical) but stress the positive even with the questions that focus on your negative aspects.

    The answers I gave were put into three sections, she made it clear that the best section to be categorized in was the star section meaning a very satisfactory response. And the other two were for moderate and not satisfactory. This may help to ease any anxiety you might have when you see them writing things down. After jumping back and forth throuhgh questions she had asked me if I had any questions for her.

    TIP 1: if you interview and you reached this point and you had skipped a question they asked this is the time to go back to be sure you earn another star. This happened to me so this is what I did and i threw in a brief explanation of the type of person I am.

    TIP 2: if you didn't skip any questions then be sure you have done your homework and know some questions to the job that your interested in depending on the which field your interviewer is in be sure to have technical and non- technical questions in mind if you still draw a blank just ask about the diference between upstream and downstream.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Fawley, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Although the interview was average, I really liked the experience. They paid for the transport expenses and everything else but they took quite a while to announce the interview results which was pretty sad.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Gainesville, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The process was very straight forward. I talked to a recruiter at a university sponsored career fair and was offered an interview on the spot. The interview was about a week after I spoke to the recruiter.
         The interview itself was mostly behavioural and lasted about an hour. Throughout the entire interview the interviewer stopped to ask if you had any questions. ExxonMobil firmly believes that if a student has a strong academic history and can communicate person to person then they will be a good addition to the team. About four weeks after my interview I was offered a position.
