    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview. The interviewer was really nice and patient. We talked a lot about the coursework and the research experience I had within the past few years. I have really a lot of diverse and interesting research opportunities. After the interview, I haven't heard from them for the next round.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say it is pretty technical. The interviewer knows a lot about what he is dealing with, and I tried to sell my research ideas as much as possible.   Answer Question

    GREF Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    One Campus interview- about 30 minutes. Mostly all behavioral questions. I think my interview went ok but I was under the impression from the start that Exxon rarely hires for the GREF department but will still sometimes "check out" a candidate. I wasnt even interviewing for a specific position, just the GREF dept in general which is why you'll notice I listed a department for as the job title.

    Chemical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fawley, Hampshire, South East England, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    First there was an online application with a couple of competency questions. Get through that there's a numerical reasoning online test which is by kinexa. No tricks here just need to practice with more than just SHL. It's more difficult than that.
    Next stage is the competency based 1:1 interview at their head quarters in Fawley.
    I made it to the final stage months after my application so i assume I wasn't one of the first batch of interview offers.

    Interview could've been better but I had exams so didn't give 100%. Not a fan of the Fawley base either.

    Interview Questions
    • No technical questions. They were all competency
      The toughest one was about giving an example of a time when you failed at something. It's tough to pick something that still makes you look good
