Engineering Summer Placement Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Exxon Mobil

Interview Details Online application process - including: had to insert all grades I have received at university.
Numeracy and diagrammatic reason tests online. - I found this very time limited but no more than expected.
Telephone interview - ~30 minutes long and completely competency based

I was declined after this stage

The next stage would be a face-face interview for the particular position I was applying for (or an assessment centre for other positions)

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you have used numerical reasoning   Answer Question

Chemical Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA (US)

I applied through other source and interviewed at Exxon Mobil.

Interview Details In all of their pages you can find: "ExxonMobil is an Equal Opportunity Employer." Yet, they do not accept applications from engineering student studying at California State Universities, as if the higher tuition defines higher knowledge. Very disappointing.
