    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Shell.

    Interview

    The questions were mostly behavior, and easy to prepare for. I would recommend googling past questions because they don't change often. Make sure you can answer behavioral questions well. The process is much easier if you have interned there and got an offer from an exit interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shell in February 2018.

    Interview

    Phone screening with hiring manager, followed by Skype interview 2 weeks later. Questions were based on my research and internship experiences. Easy interview questions.

    The position was based in a different time zone. HR would call me in the middle fo the night for scheduling the interview, inspite of being aware of this fact. Very unprofessional on their part.

    They asked me five questions, which has 2mins to prepare and 3 mins to say. The five questions are all basic behavior questions, which are not difficult. Preparation time is enough for me. But the answer time is a little short.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Shell (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    It took awhile but they were very good about reaching out to let me know i was still in the running they just had some scheduling challenges. Everyone was extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. First was an hour long phone interview (behavioral style questions) with HR and team manager. About a month later, had an in person interview. It was long (3 hours, behavioral questions) and some questions were repetitive so be sure to bring notes with you. In person was with HR and another manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell in December 2017.

    Interview

    After all the standard online application tests and recorded video answers a month later I got an email for a video interview. It was entirely case based, no behavioral questions. I did not find it too challenging, but it is tough in a way, because all the case questions are pre-written, and you get zero emotional or verbal feedback of how well are you answering the questions. The HR called me with an offer the next day.
