    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 – interviewed at ExxonMobil (Fawley, Hampshire, South East England, England) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was very intense with a lot of questions. All competency based but some were very quirky I certainly hadn't answered them before. Make sure you know the ins and outs of your examples and can spin them. Was asked about 8 questions so have plenty in the bank! 2 assessors so think about who to address.
