Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX) in October 2016.

Interview

Started with a 1-on-1 in-person interview. Covered behavioral/situational questions. Very straightforward, traditional interview.

They flew me out on Thursday morning. That night we had dinner with some newish employees who showed us around the town and talked about what the first few years on the job look like. Informal and fun.

Friday morning we were driven to the ExxonMobil campus for breakfast and then we had three 50-minute one-on-one interviews. Social lunch w interviewers then we went on a tour of campus and then flew home

My 3 main interviews went behavioral-technical-behavioral. Questions were recycled between the very first interview and these two behavioral interviews. A couple questions were asked word-for-word in all three. Technical interview was on a whiteboard.

Interview Questions

    Describe a time you got too much credit for a group effort

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX) in September 2010.

    Interview

    General Behavioral interview. Took us into a room and briefed us on what the interview would be like, then individually we went and interviewed with a recruiter. Very laid back interview, my interviewer had gone to the same college as me. Everyone was very friendly and open, and relaxed and had a good time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    heard about the position from a recruiter. The role was with Exxon Mobil Upstream research. It was for developing a complex e&p model. I had an hour long technical phone screen asking general object oriented and other software development questions. I was called back to come in for an in person interview. I expected business domain questions as well as discussion of the team or the project. I received another technical screening with no detail about the specific work. The onsite interview started with five standard behavioral questions that "hr wanted us to ask" It continued with implementing the fizzbuzz program and dicusssion of graph traversal. The interview promptly ended at the hour mark without anytime for me to ask questions
