    Chemical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Fawley, Hampshire, South East England, England
    Anonymous Employee in Fawley, Hampshire, South East England, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    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

    Refining, Chemicals & EMEEL Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Fawley, Berkshire, South East England, England
    Anonymous Employee in Fawley, Berkshire, South East England, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ExxonMobil in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process involved an online personality test, phone and a face to face interview. The phone and face to face interviews contained standard competency based questions. Both of them were conducted in a pleasant laid back manner and the interviewer attempted to make it as easy as possible for me to get across the relevant information.

    I felt my phone interview went really poorly but was possibly redeemed by giving an extra example at the end when asked if there was any other areas that I felt hadn't been covered.

    Online application process - including: had to insert all grades I have received at university.
    Numeracy and diagrammatic reason tests online. - I found this very time limited but no more than expected.
    Telephone interview - ~30 minutes long and completely competency based

    I was declined after this stage

    The next stage would be a face-face interview for the particular position I was applying for (or an assessment centre for other positions)

    Competency based interview. Exxon makes quite a lot of use of these types of questions these days and I love them .Please describe a time where you had to convince a group of your idea and how you handled the situation?
    Another challenge is the continuing need for new, breakthrough technologies that can help find, develop and/or produce oil and gas. Technology more than anything else has been the driving force behind the industry’s ability to deliver increased oil and gas production safely, efficiently and in an environmentally sound manner.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Met at a career fair and only talked briefly but handed the recruiter my resume. Was invited to an informal lunch interview where we were introduced to the company and were able to ask any questions we had. Students were given the chance to tell about our experience. Subsequently invited for a formal interview on campus. Interview consisted of fairly standard behavioral interview questions. "Tell me about a time when..." A week or so later I was informed that I had been recommended to move on and eventually got a call from a location in Houston where I had a final phone interview before receiving an offer.
