    Graduate Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell (Houston, TX) in November 2016.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shell in October 2016.

    Interview

    Past the online test and was invited for an interview one the same day. But had to reschedule it since their arrangement was when I was on flight. Had to wait for more than two weeks to reschedule the phone interview and got rejected two days after the interview. Not sure what went wrong. I prepared for every single possible questions mentioned online and followed the STAR structure. Maybe this is just not a good timing.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norman, OK
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shell (Norman, OK) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted an application in September, then had to do two assessment tests online. An issue I had was that I was never sent a confirmation email to schedule an interview. By the time I contacted Shell, in person interviews were already over. Instead I had to have a phone interview.

    The interview itself is behavioral based. But be sure to be prepared for follow up questions on those behavioral questions.
