    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell (Denver, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, with numerical and behavior tests, which are very difficult but time-consuming. Days later, I got a phone interview by HR, and dealt with behavior questions for 1 hour. Several months later, I got additional notification, and had a phone talk with the team manager. Yet didn't get the offer.
