Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell (Norco, LA) in February 2012.

Interview

I had a basic phone interview with one of the Shell HR managers. First we went through my resume, and I had a chance to explain some of my accomplishments.

After that, I had to answer Shell's CAR interview method. There was one question regarding Capacity, Accomplishments, and Relationships.

After the interview, I heard back the next day with a informal offer. After about a week, I received a formal offer.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell (New Orleans, LA) in March 2008.

    Interview

    I applied for an internship on the Shell website and was contacted about an interview about 2 wks after.

    The interview took place on campus with one recruiter and lasted about 30-45 minutes. The interviewer ran through my resume and asked me questions about specific jobs and classes I had in the past. There were also a list of behavioral questions. The final part of the interview consisted of a hypothetical situation in which I was the CEO and had to make major strategical decisions to address a certain issue such global warming or peak oil.

    I was offered an internship over the phone about a week later and accepted.

    The next step was to complete a series of pre-employment forms, a back ground check, and a drug screen (hair test).

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of an interviewer who wrote my responses down to send to someone who would review the responses and decide whether I got the job. The questions were typical behavioral questions with a heavy focus on teamwork, and the last question was a very broad case question in which you were asked to solve some large-scale (worldwide) problem.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell in April 2010.

    Interview

    Simple 1:1 interview with questions on character, conflict resolution, communication and team building abilities. Towards the end, they'll ask you to pick a topic from a list of 5 (mine was related to the energy field) and ask you a series of questions on it. Like, if you were head of this energy department and you wanted to get the shareholders to agree to this new energy research, how would you sell it?
