    I only had one interview and it was with an engineer. With Imperial Oil you don't apply to specific roles for internships, but instead apply in a general application and they would put you in a role they see fit.

    Interview

    The interview itself was a very structured behaviour-type interview, and the interviewer would not express any personal sentiment, and always replied me with "excellent".
