    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    Interview was unlike any interview I've ever been on. It pretty much let's you know that you're interviewing for a highly competitive job, somewhat like auditioning for a TV show. The interview was held in the Hilton hotel where ExxonMobil rented out an entire floor where they had multiple interviews going on at once. The first group asks mainly background questions about your work history/educational history etc. The next group of interviewers ask situational questions. My advice would be to prepare yourself before you go by writing down key points on a notepad and writing questions down for the end of the interview. A LOT of questions, they love it. Two months later I received a phone call with the job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you were in a stressful situation and how you overcame that situation.   Answer Question
