Process Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in HarbourFront (Singapore)
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (HarbourFront (Singapore)) in September 2016.

Interview

It was very difficult. I figured that took the first 10 minutes to decide if they wanted me or not. The answer was no. So, they tested me with a lot of difficult technical questions to dampen my confidence. My peers did not have this difficult interview. Hence, I felt like they have already decided if I was a fit at the first 10 minutes.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Norman, OK) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my college's recruitment website. Got accepted for the interview. I thought it was very straight forward, no questions that caught me off guard except maybe why I wanted to be a chemical engineer. The lady was nice, and they were quick to get back to me with a nice rejection letter.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was told to speak with them at the career fair by a recruiter. Immediately was scheduled an on campus interview. This was basic STAR questions. Then received a phone call from a manager to see if I would be interested in her department. I flown down for an on site interview. The first night was dinner with a new engineer. The next day was very long and you had to be on your game at all times. I had two technical interviews. They want you to be crazy smart, personable, but also like the people in the department. It took at least a month for me to hear back.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very lengthy and extensive interview process. At my school, only a few students received an on-campus interview. This was a 1:1 behavioral interview. About 7 weeks later, I got a call to schedule a 2nd round phone interview. A week after the 2nd round, I was invited to the 3rd round on-site interview at the refinery. The company flew me out, and the first night was an informal dinner with exxonmobil engineers. This is a time for you to get to know the people you'll possibly be working with. And it's also a time to show them that you'd be a great person to be around. The next day was the real deal - I was onsite at the refinery for about 6 hours, where I went through 3 interviews, a refinery tour, and a lunch with a few other engineers. Of the 3 interviews, 1 was technical, 1 was on soft skills, and the last was behavioral. Although the on-site interview was lengthy, it's important to keep your interview hat on the entire time. A week after my onsite, I was offered a position.

    Some tips for the application process, know EXACTLY whether you want to work downstream or upstream. And know EXACTLY whether you want to pursue the managerial or technical track. The Exxonmobil reps want to be sure you know exactly what you are interested in, and be sure to stick with it throughout the entire interview process. They don't want someone who's unsure of what they want to do.

    Also, be personable. Everyone I met throughout my interviews was very smart but also personable. It helps to be very articulate as well, because they like good communicators.

    And be sure to ask as many questions as you can because it'll show a genuine interest. Ask questions that are intelligent and job specific.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to Exxon at a Career Fair, and shortly afterward was called for an interview in an office in the same building. After this initial interview, which was largely informal, I was set up to do a second interview at the facility of work. I drove up there for a day long interview schedule with 3 or 4 different people, ranging from HR to the plant manager. After that, they were arranging yet a third interview down in Houston when I declined and joined a different company.
