    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    They brought me in for an interview after I had applied for an on campus interview. The interview was an hour long and I talked one on one with my interviewer. The questions I was asked were mostly behavioral - what was the biggest challenge you've faced in a project that you have worked on, what are you biggest strengths and biggest weaknesses, etc. I was not asked any technical questions. They let me know I would be receiving an answer about whether or not I was chosen for a second interview within 2 weeks and were very cordial.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain, in detail, a project you've worked on where you had to work through difficulties and how you overcame them.   Answer Question

    No Offer

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through campus career fair. Got the interview a few weeks later. The interview lasted about 45 minutes with basic behavioral questions, like how to you handle deadlines, what is your expertise, describe your research experience and etc. Generally an easy interview. But I was told at the beginning that this is their informational interview, not job specific.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you persuade your colleagues when you have different opinions.   Answer Question

    Facilities Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    Multi-step interview process includes on-campus info session and interview, phone interview, and on-location interviews. EM does not specify job location and description until several months before start date - employees expected to accept a job based on company standing and lifetime career goals. Competitive interview and hiring process. Difficult to understand how one may fit into the confusing company structure.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions seemed similar to all foundational interviews - i.e. Describe a difficult work experience you've faced and how you mitigated the outcome; give examples of your various roles on different teams; what have you learned from working with other people on projects, etc   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was not an option - recruiter said that EM very rarely adjusts their offer.
