There was on campus recruiting and I had interview with them. Most of the question are behavior questions, and focusing on how to solve work conflicts, talk about a time that you persuade someone, and talk about your leadership experience. I got phone call a week later from the upstream research company. They asked me some technical question during the phone interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Clinton, NJ) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Interviews included a 60 min 1:1 campus interview, a 60 min phone interview, and a full day on-site interview. The on-site interview started with an HR interview followed by my 60 minute seminar. I then had 6 45 min 1:1 interviews and a site tour. The campus interviewer seemed distracted and rushed, but my other experiences were positive. Questions were both technical and behavioral.

    I did no negotiating based on comments I saw here and by comparing my offer to a friend's offer who already works there.
