The case study is something you cannot really prepare for. A scenario is presented to you and you have to answer a series of questions, based on the background information that is given to you. You are asked to answer these questions as though you are the CEO of the company. I don't remember exactly the question that was asked, but I do remember that there were some questions that tested ethics and others that looked at your strategic/problem solving skills.

Hello, I applied online, passed the online assessments since almost 1 month and still waiting for them to determine the date of the phone interview, it's been a long time. Have you attended the Shell Recruitment Day? Less


Most questions were general in nature i.e. what motivates you? why do you want to leave your current job? what do you look for in a leader? Other questions were technical in nature , i.e. provide some examples of negotiations? data analysis? examples of a good leader? risk assessments ?

They asked me the two most important things about a specific contract

There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The most difficult experience for me was the nervousness I had because of how bad I wanted the job. I was not used to liking a company as much as I did Highmark. Their procurement team is exceptional and highly recommend applying because it was refreshing, at least for me, to be able to be myself and feel like I could go to work on a daily basis feeling like everyone is on the same team with the same mission and let us all have fun together accomplishing our mission. I know that sounds corny but I really take my work seriously and enjoy doing it, except when I am in a situation like I currently am where I feel like management is taking advantage of my drive and dedication.
