I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at ExxonMobil (Antwerp (Belgium)) in March 2014.
The interview took place at the antwerp refinery. Basic interview questions were asked to see if I have the right attitude to work for exxon. Why exxon? Give a situation in life where you had to make a tough decision? Have you also applied somewhere else? Are you a good team-player, show with an example. interview took 40 minutes

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at ExxonMobil.
Campus recruiting (submitted resume and cover letter on Exxon's campus recruiting site in advance; invited to interview with alumnus on campus). About two months later, I received an email that I had not made it to the next stage (phone interview). Typical behavioral interview. I think that the interview thought I would be a good fit for a certain division; when I expressed interest in the others, I sealed my fate.
- The most difficult part for me was repeated questions that touched on the same areas (problem-solving), etc., since I needed more anecdotes. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at ExxonMobil (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2011.
Gave them resume at university information session; they sent an email back asking for an on-campus interview within the week. Had to make a profile online and submit resume again, as well as transcript. Interview was 1 on 1 and almost entirely behavioral, the rest being specifics about the research experience on resume. Was told at the end of interview that notification would be through email; received generic rejection in about 10 days.
- Can you elaborate on a situation where you were in a group and fell short of your goals or had difficulties succeeding? Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days – interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2011.
Initially, the offer sounded great. I attended an information session with several employees who talked about their jobs. When I got to the interview, it seemed like my interviewer had completely burned out. She had no motivation, answered my questions about the company with very generic and formulaic answers, and I really learned nothing.
- Tell me about your experience working with other people. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX (US)) in October 2010.
The on-campus recruiters pre-screened resumes and set up one on one interviews. My interviewer was very nice and friendly. The questions were pretty standard. Why engineering? Why exxon? We went through my resume and detailed each item. Then she asked behavioral questions. The hardest was probably to describe a situation when someone working under me had refused to cooperate.
- Describe a situation when a team member or subordinate refused to cooperate with you and how you handled the situation. Answer Question
