    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in February 2017.

    Interview

    Conducted a phone interview with two personnel from the company in Annandale, New Jersey. Interview was very short, as they mentioned up front that they would not pay for relocation, or to fly me out for an interview, as this was to be a locally-sourced job. This was not mentioned in the job listing, and caused me to decline further interviewing

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Southampton, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was held in Southampton in the refinery. There were two people interviewing me, and they were very friendly. The interview was all competency based and started with the basic why chemeng, why oil and gas, why exxon type of questions. Then the rest of the questions were geared towards describing situations I had been in and how I reacted. Very focused on the STAR method, and it the format in which they write down your answers. I would say STAR is almost like their 'markscheme'

    Got an interview through a career fair as a freshman, the interviewer was a project manager at ExxonMobil and was very personable.

    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.

    The interview was great the only thing is that it is a bit difficult. You really have to be focused on why you are there and what you are there for. Although it looks easy, it really isn't. It takes time to get into the process.
