I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Exxon Mobil in November 2012.

Interview Details Phone interview. Called to ask more about myself, interest in the company and was tested for technical knowledge in chemical engineering. Generally pleasant with 2 interviewers taking turns to ask questions. Was allowed to ask more about the job scope and explained the requirments. Went through a drug test right before internship starts

Process Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Exxon Mobil.

Interview Details I submitted my resume to Exxon at a Career Fair, and shortly afterward was called for an interview in an office in the same building. After this initial interview, which was largely informal, I was set up to do a second interview at the facility of work. I drove up there for a day long interview schedule with 3 or 4 different people, ranging from HR to the plant manager. After that, they were arranging yet a third interview down in Houston when I declined and joined a different company.

Interview Question – Make sure you can back up what you wrote on your resume.   Answer Question

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Exxon Mobil.

Interview Details They brought me in for an interview after I had applied for an on campus interview. The interview was an hour long and I talked one on one with my interviewer. The questions I was asked were mostly behavioral - what was the biggest challenge you've faced in a project that you have worked on, what are you biggest strengths and biggest weaknesses, etc. I was not asked any technical questions. They let me know I would be receiving an answer about whether or not I was chosen for a second interview within 2 weeks and were very cordial.

Interview Question – Explain, in detail, a project you've worked on where you had to work through difficulties and how you overcame them.   Answer Question

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Exxon Mobil in October 2012.

Interview Details Applied through the campus recruitment that EM conducted. We were told that there's 2 face-to-face interviews. We will get the job offer if we pass the 2 rounds of interviews. For my first round of interview, 2 engineers from the technical department interviewed me. It lasted for about 30-40 mintues. The questions were rather typical and predictable.

Interview Question – Give me an example of how you can apply the concept from (one of your favorite subject/ module) to the petrochemical industry.   Answer Question
