    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and had a 1 hour on-campus behavioral interview. A month later I was invited to Shell Recruitment Day. Here I completed an online email simulation task over a case we received at the night prior and then had to respond to an email about the case. Then there was a group discussion over the case where we were evaluated and a self-reflection interview. Next was a case over the same scenario and then a behavioral interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Lots of behavioral questions. 50 minutes for them to ask you questions, 10 for you to ask them questions. Be prepared with stories and answers in STAR, or situation, task, action, result, format. Overall, interviewer was very thorough and gave good answers to questions I asked. Questions also seemed fair, and they have a standardized process for phone interviews, so any advice from others should apply to your interview as well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Like most others listed, I encountered them at my career fair, applied online, heard back within a couple days that I needed to take an online assessment. Took the assessment and legitimately thought I bombed, I suppose I didn't, because about a week later I was asked to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was about an hour long, individual was friendly and cut to the chase. Fairly standard questions. Finally came the SRD which is absolutely no joke. By far and away the most strenuous and exhausting interview process I've been through. Extremely rewarding, truthfully I left the SRD thinking there wasn't a chance I passed, but I did, so that was an extremely pleasant surprise.

    Good experience overall from first online application. The online application and behavioral assessment were relatively easy. Math section was timed and consequently quite challenging. Didn't receive interview. Lack of people in area/skill pool. The responses came via email and were automated.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had to take a brief personality test. Once Passed we were given a lengthy ethical test. That test consisted of case-based questions and had to give answers of best and worst options. Following the ethical test was a math-based test of 16 questions in 18 minutes. The questions were based on charts and mostly were percentage based questions. The careers website had practice questions that were very similar to the real test.
