I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil in January 2010.

Startegic Planning Department -- Informational Interview -- Not for Any Specific Job Opening Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through another source - interviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2013.
Interview Details The interview was on the phone. It was very polite and followed structured questions set by the company. There were digressions to clarify a few items. The interview lasted a few minutes more than anticipated. It was a very good experience. For an informational interview it was very productive use of time and benficial.
Pricing Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil.
Interview Details the process is stringent and laborious. I don't think there have to be 4 separate interviews to identify if a candidate is worthy of a job offer. Clearly the need for minorities is represented in the hiring practices.
Interview Question – na Answer Question
Exploration Geophysicist Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through another source and the process took 5 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil.
Interview Details I had to pursue interviewers at academic and professional conferences in order to get a first interview. The conference interview is about 30 min to 1 hr and covers your interests and where you would fit into the company. The second interview came about 6 weeks later and was a site visit. I gave a research focused job talk and met with 6-7 interviews - mostly managers and supervisors. This was much less formal than I anticipated (with the exception of the talk) and was mostly just friendly discussions, behavioral interview questions, and a chance for me to ask questions.
Interview Question – The most difficult part of the interview was fielding questions at the end of my job talk. It was clear that the industry and academic focuses were different so I recommend thinking about your talk from the industry perspective if you are coming from academia. Answer Question
Research Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2013.
Interview Details Campus interview. Submitted a resume. Called for HR interview. Interview went off fine, and I was told I'd hear back if they have an opening for someone with my skill set.
Interview Question – Standard HR questions - nothing that cannot be answered using a STAR approach. For example, did you work on this project alone or was this a team effort? What are the names of those who contributed to this project before you? Answer Question

Project Engineer/Field Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil in April 2014.
Interview Details I had a screening interview at a prior military hiring conference. The interview lasted 45 minutes starting with me telling about myself. The interviewer did most of the talking and me asking most of the questions. One month later they contacted me for a follow up interview. Another month later the follow up interview process started. First, I had dinner with two Project Engineers the evening before the interviews. On the actual interview day, I had breakfast with Project Engineers as they were explained the benefits to me. The remainder of the day was back to back interviews with several people. Since I already have work experience, the interview questions were geared more towards my past work history and background. My final interview ended with the interviewer telling me that an offer will be sent. Two weeks later, I received the official offer.
