Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at ExxonMobil.

Interview

I applied through university and got an on-campus interview. The interview took about 1 hour. Most of questions were behavior questions like how you deal with difficult persons in your group. The interviewer was very nice and informative. She told me if I got accepted to the next round it will be an full day onside interview. And it may take few weeks before I heard back from them. So I am still waiting.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ExxonMobil (Clinton, NJ (US)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Interviews included a 60 min 1:1 campus interview, a 60 min phone interview, and a full day on-site interview. The on-site interview started with an HR interview followed by my 60 minute seminar. I then had 6 45 min 1:1 interviews and a site tour. The campus interviewer seemed distracted and rushed, but my other experiences were positive. Questions were both technical and behavioral.

    • I was asked to explain part of my work that was not the main focus, to determine how fully I understand the overall process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did no negotiating based on comments I saw here and by comparing my offer to a friend's offer who already works there.
