    Graduate Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Haag (Netherlands)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Shell (Haag (Netherlands)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First an online application (CV and cover lettre), then online assessment, third an interview by telephone and finally a recruitment day. Especially the recruitment day is interesting, as it actually consists of two days. The first day you meet the entire group (we were with six), go out for dinner and prepare a case for the following day. The following day you have a personal written case, a case interview, a group case and another assessment interview.

    Shell Graduate Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nootdorp (Netherlands)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shell (Nootdorp (Netherlands)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Na het inzenden van mijn CV en motivatie, een link met een tweetal testen gekregen. Daarna een telefooninterview. Ik werd allereest ruim een half uur te laat gebeld door de recruiter. De recruiter kwam vervolgens verward en gehaast over, zei dat ze een drukke dag achter de boeg had en dit 'even' snel moest doen. Had geen geduld voor mijn antwoorden, onderbrak me de hele tijd nog voordat ik mijn punten duidelijk kon maken. Na alle vragen van haar kant, was er ruimte voor mij om iets aan haar te vragen. Uit interesse gevraagd naar haar ervaring als werknemer van Shell, maar werd bot afgesnauwd met 'als ik het hier niet leuk had, dan werk ik hier niet al 16 jaar'. Het was duidelijk dat ze niet op dit telefooninterview zat te wachten en maar als te snel klaar wilde zijn.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cyberjaya (Malaysia)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell (Cyberjaya (Malaysia)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a great interview experience. I would say one of the best i have ever had. Their interview process consist of a few different stages. Structural, Behavior and also technical. After finishing the interview stage if you succeeded they will have a short chit chat session. Its more of a get to know each other and you can also ask how was the performance of the interview. They are very open towards review and also very friendly.

    if you are not best suited for the job they will tell you so but if they like the certain skills and quality you have they would recommend you to other departments.

    Difficult Interview

The interviewer gave no indication of the quality of my answers and was strictly professional. Overall, it was quite a difficult process.

    SAP Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shell in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewing with Shell was a mixed experience. There were 3 rounds. Initial HR screening and then a Phone interview with the hiring manager. and then final assesment. The final assessment had 2 rounds a structured interview and a technical / functional interview.
    I found the structured interview relevant and professional.
    The technical Interviewer was however, unprofessional and hardly showed any signs of experience in interviewing for a senior position. The interviewer's experience was of working in a development centre team of developers working as a factory model. All he interested was in, gazing into his laptop and get questions and shower them like a objective exam. With no interest in scenarios or practical application of technical sap capabilities. Not a single question about the interviewee's previous experience or what skills, would he bring to Shell. The interviewer showed no example of shells value system- honesty, integrity and respect for people or leadership qualities.

    Interview

    1- online application. 2- online test basically aimed on English knowledge and how fast you calculate and assess data (simple tasks). 3- online interview where many standard questions asked but all answers should be supported with real-life examples and truth of course. 4- face to face interview if you hiring as experienced specialist or if you're recent graduate of have less than 3-5 years of work experience of low job position you will have face to face (mainly in groups) business case exercises and tasks. if you're graduate your first job position most likely will be selected by managers and HR based on their view and the company needs (as they believe Shell can shape a good specialist out of anybody) and in a small portion based on your wishes. then wait for positive answer )
    the interview processes can be long (several and many months, more than 12 in the rare cases)
