Shell Telephone Interview


#201

I’ve just had my interview for Graduate Program at Shell Netherlands.

It was a long one - around 1,5 h.

There were 3 parts:

  1. Behavioral interview (give me an example of the time when you …). Be prepared to answer questions about Capacity, Achievement, Relationship.
  2. Why oil company? Why Shell? What would you like to do with us?
  3. My questions.

My interview did NOT include a part where you have to choose a topic to talk about.

To all of those who went through the interview - how long did you have to wait for the results?

Has anybody had their phone interview with Shell recently?
Do they no longer ask about capacity?
Do they always begin the interview asking about your biggest achievement?

Mine is in a week!

I feel obligated to post my experience after learning a lot from this thread, even though I am in the States. Just finished my phone interview for a graduate role. Interviewer said only A and R are evaluated, C is partly based on my online assessment, so no topic discussion.

The questions I got are:
Time when you had to change your approach in achieving a goal
Time when you have to be respectful and listen to others opinion (paraphrased a bit)
Time when you have to make a timely decision
Time when you have to discipline yourself in order to achieve a goal you set
Time when you had to build a relationship with someone you don’t know and achieve a goal
Time when you have to be sensitive about others’ belief, culture / background

There could be one more that I don’t remember , lasted a little over an hour
Yes there are also why energy industry, shell, what is your career plan, why do you think you are right for this role type of questions. Then you get to ask as well .

I feel like the interviewer did not interact too much. Didn’t probe a lot as other people mentioned. Which is a contrast to a previous Shell interviewer I had before, who was so nice to kind of conclude what you said that you feel better about your answers. That was a few yrs ago.
Response expected in 2 weeks.
