    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.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell.

    Interview

    1 English test, 1 Math test, followed by 5 behavioral questions thru virtual interview. English and Math tests have a pretty severe time constraint, so be wary.
    Took me 1-2 weeks to hear I had been selected for the final assessment.
    Final assessment contains one case study. During assessment, you will give 5 minute presentation followed by an hour of follow up questions. Pretty taxing interview process as a whole.
