    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    Standard competency interview but strongly directed towards work experience rather than academic or extra curricular experiences. Frustrating to be told that they didn't want to hear any more of one aspect of my experience which I felt was more relevant to the question asked. I guess looking for a very specific type of candidate

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview

    Applied on-line. Online tests and then very quick response for a telephone interview and then an on-site interview. Telephone interview was around 25min and the on-site interview was with two interviewers and lasted around 50min. Both were focused on competency questions on a range of competencies the company values.

    Very friendly process but the face-to-face interview involved a lot of travel for just one interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at ExxonMobil (Fawley, Hampshire, South East England, England).

    Interview

    First there was an online application with a couple of competency questions. Get through that there's a numerical reasoning online test which is by kinexa. No tricks here just need to practice with more than just SHL. It's more difficult than that.
    Next stage is the competency based 1:1 interview at their head quarters in Fawley.
    I made it to the final stage months after my application so i assume I wasn't one of the first batch of interview offers.

    Interview could've been better but I had exams so didn't give 100%. Not a fan of the Fawley base either.

    Interview Questions

    • No technical questions. They were all competency
      The toughest one was about giving an example of a time when you failed at something. It's tough to pick something that still makes you look good
