    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell in July 2011.

    Interview

    The first phone interview asked questions all relating to job description and management style.
    He called from the states to give the interview. I approach the interview in a more "reality" & "friendly" style and i think that didn't work out for me. I believe they were looking for answer that is more "textbook" & "process oriented".

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell in October 2009.

    Interview

    Here we go!

    The process for us was divided in two parts.
    1) Screening
    2) SRD (Shell Recruitment Day)

    I. Screening
    I) First of all we had to fill and submit a resume. The resume is in a specific format and will be provided by Shell. Plus, we also had to apply online and fill a virtual resume online. Based on these two resumes, some people were short listed for telephonic interview.

    ii) The date for Telephonic interview was communicated in advance. They can call at any time. I was the first to get a call at around 11 am and the last call came at about 8 or 9 pm. So be prepared! My interview was a 5 minute thing. Interviews are non – Technical. They asked me about some general stuff and then gave me a topic to speak on for a couple of minutes. Those who make through the interview will be called for SRD.

    II. SRD
    I) Project Round: Also known as Technical round, here you will be asked to present projects which you have done. You may present any project be it COP, SOP, LOP, Apogee, Internship, PS1 etc. We were asked to present only 1 project of our choice. All the questions in this round were related ONLY to the project and no other technical questions were asked. Those who make it through this round will go for HR.

    ii) HR Round: A very short and simple HR round. Quite simple.

    iii) Case Study Round: We were given a 60-70 page case study. We had to go through and prepare a 5 minute presentation on it. All this had to be done in 90 minutes. Please note that the presentation MUST NOT be of more than 5 minutes.
    The case study round is a unique round and is somewhat difficult also. And so to make things simpler for the candidates, one sample case study round is held one day before SRD. That sample round is non evaluative. Also, you won’t find these case studies anywhere on the internet or in books. So, don’t waste your time in searching for them. Your best opportunity to prepare for it will be during the sample round. Those who survive this round will go for the final round.
    iv) Group Activity Round: This is a modified GD round. The only thing is that here you won’t be alone; you will be divided in two teams. This is quite a simple round. You will be given a topic and some literature will also be provided. Your (and your team’s) discussion MUST revolve around the given literature only.

    Important advice:
    This was the process for us. It might be different for you guys. So don’t depend on this completely. And people with low CGPA need not worry. The CGPA cut off was 6.0 for us. So, whether you are 6.01 or 9.99, it really won’t matter.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Singapore (Singapore)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shell (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    It was just a phone call about the position. This is because my role was a contract position that went through a 3rd party resourcing company. I understand that for permanent roles the interview process is more stringent and intensive. For permanent roles there are at least 2 levels of interviews and the applicant will not only be tested on their technical capabilities and experience but also their personality and inter-personal skills. This non-technical part of the interview is extremely difficult to fake your way through, because the interviewers are trained extensively to learn about your personality. They ask questions that appear to have nothing whatsoever to do with the job.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Shell (Bengaluru (India)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    I just want to put my interview experience with the shell.
    I am sad to say it that you interviewers are ruining the right way of interview by being more process oriented.
    The guy who took my interview asked three time the same question: "Share the experience of stakeholder management " while same has already been covered by that lady.
    They don't know what is the project and who is hiring manager but simply evaluating. I myself take interview and do evaluation, your interview team were more focused on writing than listening.

    It's my friendly suggestion to improve the interview pattern or else you miss the good candidates.
    I am not writing this because I did not clear the second round but the duration and process should not be for sake of it, it should be for right evalution.

    • They don't know what they want, they refer scripted questions and want the predetermined answers.   2 Answers
