    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    Required cover letter, CV, academic transcript, and online application form. 2nd stage was a phone interview asking questions about you and your interests. 3rd stage was a face to face interview with a couple of GMs. The questions in the face to face interview included: Why did you apply for this job? How do you think your extracurricular activities could apply to companies like Exxon? What does a career in IT look like to you? How have you helped to implement IT solutions in the workplace? Would you be interested in a role in project management? What will drive/motivate you when you have mundane work? This interview also included a case study

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult and unexpected question was, what will motivate you when you have mundane work? The business case study was an inbox of emails which had to be prioritised and answered before leaving for holiday in 1 hour. It was based on a real life situation where there was a leaking oil pipe and requests to have it fixed from various stakeholders and a government department because of safety, financial, and environmental costs. Your outcome had to be presented to the GMs interviewing you.   View Answer

    Summer Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ExxonMobil in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Apply online through the exxon mobil summer vacation work page. Had a phone interview which lasted quite long (almost 50 minutes). Didn't really prepare for it so the questions were sort of shocking - looking back they were quite generic (leadership skill, extra-curricula, problem-solving). Few days later got a call for a 2nd round interview in Melbourne. They arranged flights and accomodation. Interview was very short (30mins - repeated questions) and a drug test.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Panel interview of 3 interviewers to 1 interviewee. The interviewers were from 3 different departments of different seniority. Questions asked were closely based on your resume as well as situational based questions. So they basically went through each item you have written on your resume and ask you to elaborate. At the end of the interview, it's the usual question and answer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Online application and online test followed by phone interview (competency based). The interview was relaxing and I really enjoyed it. I passed my phone interview but did not get notification for face to face final stage interview due to the fully filled internship positions.
