    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at ExxonMobil in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online before the recruiter came to my school. Late afternoon (dinner time) on the day before the interview, the recruiter gave us a presentation about the company as well as the recruiting process. My interview with ExxonMobil was on the day after the info session. The recruiter was pretty nice. We basically walked through my resume. She asked questions based on the resume or some clarifications of my resume. I felt relaxed during the whole interview process.

    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Interview Questions
    • In the phone interview I was asked what my technical strengths were.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As it was an internship and the compensation was several times better than anywhere else I had heard of I did not attempt to negotiate.
