    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in HarbourFront (Singapore)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (HarbourFront (Singapore)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was very difficult. I figured that took the first 10 minutes to decide if they wanted me or not. The answer was no. So, they tested me with a lot of difficult technical questions to dampen my confidence. My peers did not have this difficult interview. Hence, I felt like they have already decided if I was a fit at the first 10 minutes.

    Petroleum Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Difficult, at times a little disengaging,definitely not worth making an effort for as these questions test intuitionand critical thinking which is most people struggle as millenials in general have no idea how to think critically.

    final interview can be a bit intense as you come so close to getting a job offer

    Advanced Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Clinton, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Clinton, NJ) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Presentation followed by 8 one-on-one's. Good interview approach and vetting. Tough but not unreasonable questions. The audience was much more engaged than what I was used to in grad school. People at Exxonmobil do not just show up to a presentation to let the words wash over them - they ask questions and make sure they understand.
