    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The process consisted of talking to a recruiter, two different online competency tests - one math-based and one logic-based. Then if you pass those (which seemed pretty difficult, especially the math) there was one phone interview for approximately 1.5 hours

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell.

    Interview

    They ask you to do an capacity test (prepare for this), a personality test, and a online interview infront of the webcam. Two days after (in the weekend) I got a message saying I was not through to the next round. This basically suggests that computers are checking it and no human being has actually read your application! Spend all this time for nothing! CRAZY!

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell (Bellingham, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting an application, I qualified to take an online test that was pass/fail. The test took about 90 minutes and included a personality test. A week later, I was emailed to schedule a panel interview. The interview was timed, and they wanted specific examples for each question. Use the STAR method. My interview was conducted by the internship coordinator and two operators. All were friendly and made the experience less tense.
