    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Columbus, OH) in October 2016.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2016.

    Interview

    Gave a talk on campus. Took resumes after the talk. Shortlisted people for interview the next day based on resume. One hour long 1 on 1 interview. Turns out they didn't really have any positions open either, as they were in the midst of layoffs, so they didn't give an offer to anyone finally. The whole process was therefore very confusing.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    Great experience. I applied through our campus internal career center website, then visited the XOM booth at our careerfair. The interview was very relaxed. Went over standard interview behavioral questions to see how you act in teamwork settings, how you handle disagreement. Overall, was very pleased. We wont know results of the processes until 3-4 months.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Durham, NC) in September 2016.

    The interview lasted around 35-40 minutes. The interviewer started talking about everything they've done with ExxonMobil and then started asking the questions. Almost all of them were behavioral so be ready to talk about many of you experiences. Also, have some questions to ask at the end so do your research.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Austin, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly informal, more so of an opportunity to get to know you. Several behavioral questions, but nothing that required preparation. The interviewers for the two summers I have interviewed for ExxonMobil have been very personable and simply want to know your personality.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had a initial, behavioral interview with two Exxon recruiters on campus right after my school's career fair. They will ask you to use the STAR method to answer their questions, so definitely familiarize yourself with that prior to the interview.

    Overall, the questions were straightforward, nothing tricky, but be prepared to elaborate on your experiences and answer multiple follow up questions. My interview lasted around 45-50 minutes.

    Application

    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.
