    Engineering Career Development Office Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Application

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was a casual style of (mostly) unscripted dialogue with the recruiter. The recruiter was interested in how my research had progressed in the last year, and any new outcomes I had learned. The general discussion revolved around the oil and gas industry.

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

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Basic situational interview questions. Nothing tricky. It was almost completely behavioral based. It was more of a review of the resume and experience. Ultimately, it was designed to determine fit with ExxonMobil culture. Surprisingly non-intimidating, and one of the more pleasant interviewing experiences.

    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.
