    Chemical Engineering Co-op Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Raleigh, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    ExxonMobil came to my school's career fair, so I stopped by their table and talked to a recruiter. After talking to her for a little while and giving her my resume, I was contacted for an on-campus interview the next day. In getting an on-campus interview, they look for at least a 3.7 GPA, relevant work experience, and leadership roles. I then had an on-campus interview that was all behavioral that went really well. From there, the guy I interviewed with said I should hear something by October. I was contacted about 3 weeks later via phone asking to set up a phone interview. The phone interview went well and we mostly just talked about experiences that were on my resume. I didn't hear anything for about another 2 weeks before getting the verbal offer over the phone, and then a written offer 2 weeks later.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Provo, UT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Met campus recruiter; interviewed the next week by people from HR on campus. Overall a good experience but the competition was great and the internships few. I didn't get an offer but they said I was very close to moving on to the next round. The next round would have been a phone interview with an HR person from the plant I would be working at.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Provo, UT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had one on-campus interview, and two phone calls (one to discuss whether I would be willing to do a co-op vs summer internship, discuss what they had available, etc. and one actual phone screen). They were behavioral based interviews which made things fairly painless. No "what would you do if this happened?" types of questions.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview first. This was with an engineering recruiting team, but with engineers from the field. They were very professional and asked many behavioral questions. I had a follow-up phone interview for the specific site I was referred to. Then when I did not get that initial internship, I was contacted later for another position. I had another phone screen and was given an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview that lasted about 40 minutes. After basic getting to know you questions, there were many behavioral questions. The interviewer was very easy to talk to and kept the conversation going. Overall, a great interviewing experience, even though I did not receive an offer.

    I would suggest preparing for a variety of behavioral questions if you interview with ExxonMobil.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career services then heard back that I received an offer. Only one person interviewd me and she was furiously writing the entire time which made it difficult to create a connection. MANY behavioral questions. It got to a point where it seemed like I was being asked the same question over and over so have a lot of examples ready in the back of your mind!
