Laboratory Technician Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baytown, TX

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baytown, TX) in June 2015.

Interview

No questions were asked. I was expected to do all the questioning. It was more like me interviewing the recruiters. The tech lead didn't show any kind of interest and left within the first 2 minutes.

I want to remind big companies that employees should also be impressed (its a two way road) this, if the want production to be efficient.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Paulsboro, NJ) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a lab technician position at the research and engineering facility. The full interview process lasted 2.5 hours. I met with two teams of two people each. The first team consisted of department supervisor and the person who would be my immediate supervisor. The second team consisted of other upper level management personnel who I would interact with on a regular basis.

    The first hour of the interview I felt relaxed. We discussed the position and the requirements of the position. After reviewing the details the interviewers wanted to know more about myself. This was probably the easiest part to the interview. The Interviewers like to ask question regarding Education and Focus on your current or previous job.

    The second hour I had the pleasure of meeting with personnel with whom I would interact with on a daily basis. This group of interviewers asked question about my previous work experience. Following that we dove into the behavioral question regard conduct. The questions are rather easy to answer.

    Interview Questions
