    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 online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Shell (Lake Charles, LA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process was brick and not very thorough. Highly automated with little contact otherwise. First portion was a simple application, then next portion was an amplitude based survey. No feedback, just a generic rejection notification.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Shell.

    Interview

    Standardized and bureaucratic, generic questions, must provide past life examples to support answers. Doesn't seem to matter if they are only loosely related. Simply must have an answer and example for each question, answer quality doesn't seem too relevant

    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.
