    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First is online assessment for math - difficult from time constraint. Next is in person/phone interview - easy behavioral questions. If you are part of the 3% that applied and get to the recruitment day good luck. By far the hardest recruitment/ interview process I've ever done before. You start at 7am and end at 4pm where you have an e-tray exercise (look this up), then a group case study, then a reflection interview, followed by an individual case study (extremely difficult), and then a final interview. There is basically one case study for the entire day and that is broken up into smaller more detailed case studies. The etray is basically an email simulation where you are given a case study that contains a ton of information and you have to respond to emails based on the information given-the planning phase. Then you have to write the risks/opportunities to that situation. Next you have a group case study which builds off the etray. There are up to 6 people per recruitment day. With these people you are set in front of 6 assessors who watch you while you and the other candidates work as a team on this case studying writing out details and such on a white bird in front of them, coming up with a solution. Next is the reflection interview which assess what you think you could've done better and what you thought you did well on. Then comes the individual case study which is the hardest out of the entire day. You have 20 minutes to read about 4 pages of information and then 7 more pages of financial info, gdp info, market growth, it system costs, customer service costs, industry standards, and so much more things (it is insane how much info they expect you to retain). You then have 5 minutes to plead you case to two assessors on your recommendation, then they give you a 30/40 minute interview asking you very in depth questions and changing the scenarios to see how you react. After that you have a regular interview with two other assessors - pretty much the same as your first round interview. This was he hardest interview process I have ever gone through in my life. It was extremely hard, I thought I did well and I even received positive feedback and still did not get an offer. Good luck make sure you can read info fast and understand oil implications on people the planet and the economy.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't ask me this directly but they asked another kid "where do you think oil prices will be in the next year, why?" They expected a very thorough answer with real reasons, not like I think supply is going to go down in the oil so it should be up to 50, no you'll get crushed if you say anything like that-I cannot stress how difficult this recruitment day was.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Phone Interview with a local HR personnel.
    The process is pretty fast after the few online assessments which is automatically sent out.
    Interview questions are actually predictable if prepared well before hand.

    After the phone interview will be the SRD.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell (Perth, Western Australia (Australia)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received the online test ( numerical, verbal and personality) and the online interview immediately. The test was quite average but very time consuming. The personality test was a bit odd, guess that was the reason they rejected me. The interview was going through Hirevue with 5 normal behaviour questions, which I had to talk in front of the camera staring at myself. It was not that hard if practise a bit before the mirror.
