    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX (US)) in October 2008.

    Interview

    The recruiters called me two weeks before the college career fair and told me to apply online. Then they called me and gave me a personal interview 2 days prior to the career fair. After a week I received an email notifying me that I was selected for a second round of interviews. Approximately after 2 weeks I received a phone call for another interview. That interview was approximately 1 hour long and it was about my interests, my experiences, and my short and long term goals. Then after two more weeks I received a second call for another interview. This one lasted approximately 30 mins. It was a more informal one, and it was to confirm my interests and to provide me insight about the company. Then after a week and a half I received a call providing me the final offer. As an advice I can say that you should not be impatient. Always trust in yourself and try to convinces the interviewer with facts. Another thing is to read about the company before they interview you, in that way you know what to talk and ask.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me something that is no your resume that will convince me of hiring you.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The offer was too good to negotiate anything. An advice may be to be proud of what you studied and put yourself a price that you consider is your value after all the years studying and gaining experiences. With those facts you can negotiate offers and benefits.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil in October 2014.

    Interview

    I talked to ExxonMobil at a school career and signed up for an on-campus interview at their booth. The interview was about half an hour long and mainly focused on behavioral questions and they asked a good bit of them. Overall it was a good experience. I felt like it wasn't my best interview so I wasn't to surprised that I didn't get an offer.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Baton Rouge, LA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied through campus interview and attended information session before hand. Person interviewing me first asked me what my favorite class was and why and then least favorite and why. He then went straight to the behavioral questions. He said if I didn't have a great example he could skip to different question because he had a whole list of questions that were similar. I asked questions for about 15 minutes and then that was it. Haven't heard back from them so far.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX (US)) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I gave my resume at my college's career fair. I went to their information session then to an interview. The interviewer did not actually have any position in mind and was not a technical interviewer. She just asked questions about my resume. Got an email a week later that they have sent my resume to the hiring managers. 2 weeks after that I followed up with the interview coordinator, and he said the process takes a long time because they have so many candidates. Does not look like there will be any action before I must make a decision on my offers.

    • When did you make a good decision and can you walk me through that decision process?   Answer Question
