    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shell in February-2018.

    Interview

    Phone screening with hiring manager, followed by Skype interview 2 weeks later. Questions were based on my research and internship experiences. Easy interview questions.

    The position was based in a different time zone. HR would call me in the middle fo the night for scheduling the interview, inspite of being aware of this fact. Very unprofessional on their part.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shell in December-2017.

    Interview

    After all the standard online application tests and recorded video answers a month later I got an email for a video interview. It was entirely case based, no behavioral questions. I did not find it too challenging, but it is tough in a way, because all the case questions are pre-written, and you get zero emotional or verbal feedback of how well are you answering the questions. The HR called me with an offer the next day.
