    The interview was all personality based questions. No technical questions whatsoever. They were very interested in what part of Exxon I wanted to work with.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
