    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shell.

    Interview

    Two online tests, followed by an in person interview, then an in person interview at Shell Recruitment Day. All in all pretty straightforward, really focus on their assessment. The 1:1 is all according to the books and everything is pretty much pre-planned out. Definitely prepare well for an assortment of questions involving specific things you have done in the past.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Shell in October 2012.

    Interview

    Online application on the shell website, followed by a phone interview lasting around 30min. The entire process took about 2 months, involving 2 or 3 successive emails from the HR telling us to wait and that the interview date will be confirmed in due time. Good thing is that you will be informed within 2 working days if you have been rejected after the phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult, standard questions regarding your resume and scenario questions, like how you handled certain things. This is then followed by a case study type of question, which has been described many times on this website.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Shell (Chennai (India)).

    Interview

    The interview is a 3-step process.

    1) Psychometric Tests: An online psychometric test (an elimination round) with generic questions like rate your leadership qualities on a scale of 0-5, how would others perceive you as a leader ? (0-5 scale answer) designed to test self-esteem (higher the better without being narcissistic) and stability of opinions (consistency in answering different questions seeking same answers is important).

    2)A quant test (17 questions in 15 min, pretty complicated charts, calculator allowed), a decision making test (rate the action you would take in the following scenario on a scale of 0-5) and

     an e-tray, (e-tray exercise is designed to simulate an email inbox flooding with mails, and you need to answer them. The answers will be MCQ type where you rate choices on 0-5 scale like decision making test. There will be one written type answer (be sure to answer it properly). You will have ~45 min to answer 15 questions, higher the appropriately answered questions the better. The context of the questions will be available in multiple folders in the e-tray software, so there will be a lot of back & forth for details (such as scheduling details, costs, etc).

    3) Interviews: a) Case-study: 20 min will be provided to solve an individual case-study. Mine was a pipe-line planning case study, where I had to a) Select the optimal route for the pipeline b) Select the right technology of pipeline based on the information provided.
    There will be an information overload of random information. Generally, you will be judged based on how many sound criteria the selection/decision is made and how robust they are. Focus on safety, costs, feasibility, long-term and short-term advantages/disadvantages, company image and outlook, environmental impact etc. of your choices.

    60 min presentation of case study where you will defend your choices and more question will be asked (see below).

    b) Competency Based interview (60min): Focused on resume. Expect generic HR questions and detailed resume questions. Interview is leadership focused, not technically focused. Focus discussions on overall impact/target of resume point, the leadership skills involved.

    In case of both interviews, the longer they go on, the better!

    Interview Questions

    • During my case study interview, I was asked how would I go on with my proposed pipeline scheme in case local population raises an objection.   Answer Question
