    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Spoke at the career fair with a representative. Then applied online through the school career website, where 20 individuals from the engineering school were selected for on campus interviews. After that stage there was a phone screening which ultimately ended up with an all day interview/visit at the Houston campus. The night before was a recruitment dinner, which helped answer any questions you may have and is with younger engineers. All interviews were behavioral questions, as long as you prepare STAR examples beforehand you will be fine! People skills go a long way with EM, so it's best to be yourself. Process started in August and ended in November, went very smoothly and they really seem to care about you.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I had one phone interview with three people on the other end. They told me that I should hear back from them within three weeks, at which time I might be invited for an on-site interview. After three weeks, I got an email saying "Personnel selection is difficult when a limited number of positions exist and a choice needs to be made between several outstanding candidates... we do not have a position to offer you at ExxonMobil." A few weeks later, I saw that the position was still listed as open on their website.
