Shell Trading Development Programme Assessment/Interview

I just received an invitation to take the Shell TDP assessment, and I was wondering if any TDP alum can share their insight. Also, I hear the interview is brutal.. so if anyone has anything to say about that I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Hello Handash,

I also did the test but I haven't heard anything yet.

Do you have my news?

hi

Sep 25, 2017

PM me if you guys end up there, I just interned at BP.

Hi could you share about the interview process and culture? I know BP isn't Shell but since everyone knows everyone in the oil industry maybe both are comparable. thanks

Oct 6, 2017

I don't think the two are very comparable. BP has a very unique culture. BP weighs a lot on how you fit into the culture of teamwork, down to earth, personable, ect. As far as recruitment goes, I did half of the Shell assesments until I accepted my internship at BP but with Shell I think I did my application, then two tests then and over the phone interview? Don't quote me on that it was over a year ago. I just know Shell took significantly longer than BP in the recruitment process. At BP I did an application, two tests, a recorded hirevue interview, and then a superday with many interviews and case studies.

Yes exactly I did 2 online tests from Cubiks (personality and general logics-numerical, verbal, abstract) and now waiting for a phone interview. You did the phone interview? Can you share your experience on that and the questions? (if you still remember) Thanks!

Mar 18, 2018

Hi friend, what is the form of the online test ? Is it difficult ? thanks

Sep 26, 2017

Hi guys same here I did the test for Shell TDP but haven't heard anything yet. let's keep this forum going and, hopefully if we can get to the next round, share any informations on either the interview process or industry insight.

cheers

Sep 27, 2017

Absolutely.

If anyone heard a anything please let's us know.

Oct 5, 2017

Yeah, we need to keep the forum going.. I found very little help regarding the assessment. Glassdoor has alot of reviews under the graduate program interviews.. the process is essentially the same, so you should check those out.

Oct 3, 2017

Hey I am also anxiously waiting. I took my test on 20th and still waiting

Oct 5, 2017

anything?

Oct 4, 2017

Hi Guys, I am also eagerly awaiting the feedback. Good luck to everyone. Btw, I have applied to the Dubai Hub. What about you guys?

Oct 5, 2017

I also applied to dubai, do you have the right to work there? I do not, I hope that does not kill my chances .

Oct 6, 2017

Every person working in UAE is on an employer sponsored residence Visa. So, the concept of right to work is not applicable entirely here.

Oct 6, 2017

right. do you know arabic?

Oct 8, 2017

No I don't speak arabic though I completed the starter level classes recently. Lets see when they get back as we are in the 9th - 20th duration now!

Oct 5, 2017

Hello everyone,

I was reading a while back that hr would contact us to set up the phone interview during the next 2 weeks. If that's correct and I haven't heard anything that means I am out. Unless they will just call the ones they are interested without notice. What do you think?

R

    • 1
Oct 5, 2017

I hope not, that would mean I am out too.. I checked online the manage your applications portal, and it still says application under consideration. In any event, I am starting to prepare for the interview so as not to freak out at the last minute.

Oct 6, 2017

I think there's a possibility that they'll notify us d-1 before the interview session. If we're still in the 2 weeks window of 9-20 October we probably still have a chance. From what i have read the main focus will be about personality/culture fit. so better do some research on Shell culture and prepare for questions like: "Tell me about a time when you worked in a diverse team with many contrasting opinions and How did you work together to solve the issue?"

There's some feedback from senior traders abt what they look for from juniors, hope this helps, I can't post a link so you need to search the topic "what-i-look-for-when-hiring-junior-traders"

Not sure abt the case interview I don't think they'll ask us abt trading technicals like swap/options but more on how we approach and solve problems (in general) but to be safe i read Oil 101 (really recommend it guys!) btw I applied to Singapore office (anyone applying to sg?)

    • 2
Oct 6, 2017

I heard the interview is really difficult (source; glassdoor interviews). They go deep into your history and ask some investment scenario questions.

Oct 6, 2017

yeah I just checked glassdoor. For personality/history questions (cmiiw) i think we can practice on what type of questions they'll throw at us (glassdoor is our source) and what kind of answer we'll give them, try to do an inventory on our strength-weakness and experiences. Hopefully ASUgrad2017 can give us some insights on this since no current-TDP or alum joining our forum.

For investment scenario/knowledge in finance, what books/sources do you recommend for studying? since I work as an engineer in the upstream side I practically have no finance knowledge and Oil101 doesn't dwell deeply on the finance side.

Anyone else have any infos/thoughts?

Oct 16, 2017

best advice is to try to answer personality questions to fit their values. Also understand basic trading arbitrage and trading mathematics, nothing too crazy.

Oct 13, 2017

Interviews are probably already taking place. If an interview hasnt been setup by now it is hard to believe you passed the tests

Oct 13, 2017

yeah, that's kind of annoying.. why not give that information first instead of waiting until the last week to let you know you were waiting/preparing for nothing. I sent HR an email anyway.. my application status still says 'under review' and I want to clear that up now.

Oct 13, 2017

Yup, they probably want to have all the candidates set up for the assessment centre before sending out rejections. Definitely annoying.

Oct 7, 2017

Anyone applied for London office?

Oct 10, 2017

I also applied to the Dubai office. Anyone who has any guides to preparing for the interview please share with us. Lets help one another. Even if someone is not successful it at least prepares him/her for any other interview.

Oct 10, 2017

Do you have any news about the phone interview ??

Oct 10, 2017

we are in the second week of October. I really hope we all go through.

Oct 11, 2017

Hey good friends, anyone who can share with us (or me to be specific) some sites to help prepare for the interview? Like something you found really useful you can share?

Oct 15, 2017

Hi there - whilst the dates given were 9-20october I would highly suspect these are flexible as in any large scale recruitment. Don't give up hope - after all, the probability that noone on this forum has comment that they have heard back is a good sign the process is still on-going!

One of my friend received a message for an interview this friday.

He received it this morning

Oct 17, 2017

Thanks for the update. Which office did he apply to?

Oct 17, 2017

London. I sent them a message yesterday. You will find the anwser below :

Dear Ibrahim,

Our recruiter is in the process of screening your qualifications and assessment results. This may take some time since at the moment, we are experiencing a high number of applications therefore you may experience a delay in receiving feedback from us. We hope that this delay does not cause you too much inconvenience.

    • 2
Oct 17, 2017

Thanks for the update Ibrahim. This response indicates all possibilities. All the best!

Oct 26, 2017

Just got a standard rejection letter. Smh

Oct 27, 2017

Me too, I received it today. It was annoying to keep us waiting this long!

Thank you indeed.

However it doesn't look promising for those like myself who haven't heard anything. Anyhow good everyone :)

Anyone been interviewed yet?

Oct 26, 2017

Out of curiosity how did everyone do on the behavioral assessment? Also, did you have 2-3 years experience?

    • 1
Oct 27, 2017

Update: 2 friends have been interviewed already. They were told about the interviews last week. So i guess it means that those of us who havent heard anything back yet, havent been selected.

Oct 27, 2017

Those of you who applied to Dubai office and were rejected, if you would like to connect as we give each other new ideas and morale, please send me a private message with your number, we can meet or just connect on Whatsapp.

ok

Nov 17, 2017

So I'm kind of late to the game and just applied (US). Anyone know where they are in the recruiting process? They still technically have their apps open through December

Dec 4, 2017

still says my application under review.

no emails after invitation to tests.

Feb 8, 2018

I applied for the latest round in Houston. Applications were due in January. Got the link to the test and took it this week. Application status says Under Review. Anyone else in this latest round? I'm assuming I passed the test since I haven't received a rejection yet.

Feb 9, 2018

I am in this round as well and I just took the online assessment. Hope we both advance to the next stage in March :)

Feb 9, 2018

You think it'll be March until we find out if we're in the next stage?

Feb 12, 2018

I say March because according to the posting they are conducting phone interviews March 5-19, but I am sure we find out sooner.

    • 1
Feb 10, 2018

I applied last week and tested today. I don't think it was the best results for the test, personality was great though :)

Feb 10, 2018

Feb 11 is the notification date for next round

Feb 10, 2018

For Houston? I thought the job posting said March 9th.

Feb 12, 2018

Today is the last day for testing, per the email I received.

Feb 15, 2018

Has anyone received an invitation to interview? The forum has been very quiet post assessment. The 2018 China TDP is open until 07-Mar-2018, with 4 opportunities.

Does anyone have information about applying to multiple locations?

    • 2
Feb 15, 2018

I didn't get a response yet. Still waiting.
Houston job posting stated that 1 position was available. I also saw that China had 4.
I don't know about applying to multiple locations. I don't see why it wouldn't be allowed. However, Shell has restrictions on frequency of test taking. If you haven't passed the assessment in the past, you will have to have to wait 1-2 years before you can try again.

    • 3
Feb 20, 2018

Anyone received a request for round 2 yet?
Thanks

Feb 20, 2018

Nope. You?

Feb 21, 2018

No, I have not received anything yet. I imagine sometime next week folks would start getting an invite, and then rejections would go out possibly the 5-12 of March based on the timeline above from last Fall.

Feb 21, 2018

I too applied to the Houston program. Took the assessment. Not sure how I did. Haven't heard back yet.

For those who took the assessment, what are your thoughts on it? How do you feel about it?

Feb 22, 2018

Hi. I don't know if they rotate assessment questions or everyone gets the same ones, so may be tough to compare. I found the reading and abstract sections alright, but didn't finish all math questions in time.

Feb 22, 2018

I just hope the test is weighted in conjunction with my resume and experience

Feb 22, 2018

It is definitely the case. If they only looked at test results, they would already notify people about next round, cuz it takes a second to pick 10 or so top test results and reject all other candidates.

Feb 24, 2018

Anyone knows the salary table for during graduate development program?

Feb 27, 2018

Anybody hear anything? I got an email last Friday from HR saying that they were still reviewing applications and it was taking longer than expected.

Feb 27, 2018

I didn't get anything at all. Did you reach out to them?

Feb 28, 2018

Reached out.

Feb 28, 2018

This is for Houston, but I believe they will start notifying people sometime within the first two weeks of March.

Feb 28, 2018

Just found that Shell post another Trader Development Program on 26th Feb, work location is London, 5 headcount. Anybody know why Shell start the program so early this year as last round TDP application just closed in Dec 2017 ?

Mar 1, 2018

Houston office:

Thank you for your email.

Our recruiter is in the process of screening your qualifications. This may take some time since at the moment, we are experiencing a high number of applications therefore you may experience a delay in receiving feedback from us.

Please note that our communication with you with regard to your application is mostly done via email. Therefore, we would appreciate it if you could check your email inbox including your Spam or Junk folder regularly to ensure we maintain close contact throughout your application.

Mar 2, 2018

I applied for the Houston office in December, got invited to take the assessment early Feb., and heard back today that I am making it to the phone interview.

Check this out...
https://www.shell.com/careers/experienced-professi... If I'm not successful this time around, when can I re-apply?
If you were unsuccessful in your initial application for the TDP, you can re-apply in 12 months.

If your application was progressed and you were interviewed over the phone, you will need to wait two years to re-apply.

If you were progressed to the Assessment Centre and did not pass, you will need to wait three years until you can re-apply for the TDP.

I really am hoping to get in, but I can't imagine making to an in-person interview then not being selected. You can't re-apply for 3 years which pretty much tells you your not wanted... Wish me luck!

Mar 4, 2018

Congrats! When is your interview?

Mar 5, 2018

Anyone else got an interview invitation or a rejection? My application status still says "under review".

Mar 5, 2018

Congrats on the interview.

I haven't received anything.

Mar 7, 2018

I received an email from Shell Recruitment saying my application has been unsuccessful. Good luck to those interviewing!

Mar 10, 2018

Made an account to participate in this discussion- Have my phone interview next week. Anyone have any input or thoughts on the case study? I first heard from them last Monday and was surprised to be selected as I didn't finish one section on the assessment test. Hope that helps

Mar 24, 2018

hi Ecarajan
Did you try to study anything before assessment?

Mar 25, 2018

Hi Wama..

Can you please tell me that whether before getting assessment link does you receive any call from Shell HR regarding any short of questions.

I am little worried about the process of resume screening. Can you please help me in this?

Thanks in advance

Mar 25, 2018

Hi Ecarajan
No, I didn't get any call I just get an email for assessment
thank you

Mar 29, 2018

Hi wama

Do you are done with assessment test ? or you have schedule it in upcoming week.

Mar 29, 2018

Hi Ecarajan
yes, I did but I didn't get anything from shell until know.

Mar 29, 2018

Hi wama..
Thanks for quick reply..
Can you please tell something about the format and difficulty level of exam.
It might be helpful to all of us .
Thanks in advance .

Mar 24, 2018

Hi wama...
Right now I am not trying anything because I am not sure whether my resume will selected or not for the assessment test.

Mar 26, 2018

Hi guys, I just applied to the London TDP.
Is it normal it was impossible to add any cover letter? I was just able to upload my resume, and add additional attachements such as transcripts, reference letter or a certificate.

Mar 28, 2018

Hi ..
Option for attaching cover letter is not available.
If you want than attached cover letter with your resume and attached it as one document.

Mar 28, 2018

Thanks for your reply. So if I understood well, they make their selection only on the resume as they do not even give the possibility to add a cover letter?

Also, have you received a link to pass an online test or something like this? I remember applying for an internship at Shell some years ago and I got immediately a link to pass an online test?

From what I understood in the replies above, a link will be shared to selected candidates on April 9?

Good luck to everybody

Mar 29, 2018

Yes , in there reply they have clearly mentioned it that if your resume is find suitable than only by 9th April link for online assessment will be send by Cubik.

Mar 29, 2018

Hi Wama,

I applied for Dubai Office, got link for the online assessment on the 21st Mar and submitted on 26th and yet to get any feedback. Please let me know once you get any communication from the HR.

By the way when did you get the assessment link?
Thanks

Mar 29, 2018

Can you please tell something about the format and difficulty level of exam.
It might be helpful to all of us .
Thanks in advance

Apr 2, 2018

Hi everyone I've just found out about this a program and applied my application is under review. Does anyone know what this job/ program pays. Cause I've looked everywhere and cannot find anything. Just I don't live in London so I would have to move down to London So need to consider the finical side of things. Also how long is the average wait between them assessing you're application and getting to do the online test.

Thanks

Tasha

Apr 3, 2018

Hi Tasha

Exact figure is not know. On various site the pay grade mentioned was different On one site its mentioned about 5k to 7k initial .
But the exact figure for TDP is not mentioned anywhere.

Apr 6, 2018

Thanks a lot. is that a month or for the year ?

Apr 6, 2018

Obviously for a Months.

Apr 3, 2018

Hi
anything from Dubai office

Apr 3, 2018

Hi,

Anyone has still his application on "Application submitted"?
I have applied on March 25 and have only a 2-yr experience.

Thank you Ecarajan!

Apr 4, 2018

I had a phone interview for the Houston TDP program a few weeks ago and today received an email I was not selected. Good luck to everyone else moving forward!

Apr 4, 2018

Hi CA401..

Can you please just tell us something about ur interview experience and question asked ,as it will be very helpful for all of us .

Thanks in advance

Apr 5, 2018

Primarily behavioral questions. The case study portion was interesting and there's not really anything I could have done to study for it. Just be sure to have a calculator and notepad handy and don't try to work too fast, take your time to be sure you understand the questions being asked. I enjoyed the case study though! It was fun.

Apr 6, 2018

Hi All

Any updateds from candidate for London Office?

Apr 6, 2018

I still have my application under "Application submitted". I received an automatic email two days ago stating that they are sorry for the delay due to many applications but they do that to review each application.

I have applied for two weeks now. So I don't know if they just haven't reviewed my application yet or if one of their CV-scanning bots has just directly put my application in the trash.

We'll see. You said in another post that they should send a link for selected candidates on April 9, right?

Apr 6, 2018

hi i haven't received an email or any notification that i've even applied. my application updated straight away too under review.

Apr 6, 2018

Have you looked into your spam box? I immediately received an email stating that they have received my application.

Btw, what is your current job? I am an oil analystworking in a bank for 2 years now.

Apr 6, 2018

Hi Tasha

On every successful application submission a reference number will be generated and it will be ur communication identity with shell.

So please check ur mail box throughly or else mail to Shell.

Apr 7, 2018

Yes Mathieu ..

I received the mail from HR. Mail is pasted below for our reference.

Hi Rajan, REF: xxxxx

We aim to provide inspiring, rewarding careers and we're delighted that you're considering working with us.

How can companies, governments and communities work together to meet the rising demand for more and cleaner energy solutions? At Shell, you'll be a part of our response to this challenge.

What happens next?

Candidates who have successfully passed initial screening will receive an email on 9th April from our assessment partner.

Hi Natasha .
Till date no information from Shell .
Just waiting for 9th April.

Hopefully we will hear something soon. :) I still haven't recieved anything either

Apr 7, 2018

Hi everybody
I still wait for responding from dubai office it's two weeks since I did my assessment, is there any update from dubai office?

Apr 8, 2018

Hi wama

I think HR will take 3-4 week for result.
They don't want to give ample time for interview preparation.

Apr 8, 2018

Hi Ecarajan
Thank you, so I should wait

Apr 16, 2018

HI wama

Do you any information about your written exam?

Apr 9, 2018

Hi

any Updation for anyone??

Apr 9, 2018

No email received and my application is still on "Application received".

Perhaps the process is taking longer than usual due to many applicants

Apr 10, 2018

Hi future traders,

i got email to cubiks test starting 9 April as well. my question is to previous test doers since it has Part A (numerical, verbal and abstarct) and Part B (work style assessment), would you please share your experiencec?

i was suppose to receive the link today but still nothing in email.

Apr 10, 2018

9th April is passed but didn't receive any email or Link from Shell or Cubiks.
Let hope in near future we all receive some communication from shell regarding the delay.

Apr 10, 2018

Just for Updated for London office.

Just received mail from Cubiks for online assesment.. Last date is 22-April-2018 as per mail..

Apr 16, 2018

How difficult is it? I still have to pass mine.

Apr 17, 2018

First section is verbal . You have to solve 12 question in 8 min . There are 4 passage on which 3 question were asked.
Then the next one is quant 8 question in 8 min . Basically garp and data interpretation question.
Next is abstract.

Apr 17, 2018

Ecarjan,

wish you all the best for the results.

which sections seems to have less time if compared to questions? is it numerical/abstarct/verbal or all?

Apr 17, 2018

Its depends on candidate .. in my case i stuck in one question in numerical .
For verbal please read passage thoroughly and answer .
For abstract , its seem easy for me..

Apr 17, 2018

is it possible to skip the question and come back to it later on?

Apr 17, 2018

I didn't remember about skipping of question. But you can came back later to previous question, if Time is available with you.

Apr 18, 2018

hey ecarajan, are you applying for the Singapore program?

Apr 19, 2018

No I am applied for London office.

Hi everybody,
Any updates from Dubai Office?

Apr 21, 2018

I have applied for singapore program and I have got link for assessment tests. Deadline for these tests is 26th April. Anybody cleared these tests? How is the difficulty level? When do you think the program will commence?

Apr 21, 2018

Hi Neha ..
About this querry I have already commented above about the exam pattern.
Hope that will help.

i just finished the test, overall i must say its not an easy test and you DO NOT have time to even scratch you head. questions are not hard but timing makes them hard.

all the best to all who have yet to do the assessment and to the next levels. cheers :)

Hi,

I completed my test today. It was tough specially because of the timer. Did you get the call for the next step?

Apr 23, 2018

Any updation from anyone???

Apr 23, 2018

Still nothing. If the calls are scheduled for 21 to 31 may, I guess we will receive a confirmation 1-2 weeks before

I applied for London. Like E said, if I had as much time as need, could've passed it with a 100%.. But the time flies, and that what makes the test hard.. numerical section, a pen and paper wouldn't do you any good.. it's all about time, you have to read the problem and figure it out in your head all with in 30 sec.. I would think anyone applying for this position would be able to solve the problems on paper, their looking for the few who can solve it in their heads quick!! So needless to say, I will not be getting a interview

Apr 26, 2018

I have applied for singapore. I have not yet received any communication regarding online test.
:(

Apr 26, 2018

When did you apply? I guess the last date to take the test was 26th april.

Apr 26, 2018

Hello everyone, did the assessment today. Excuse me, ....... only 4 minutes time for one section of the test ?! Well, I am very pessimistic about my test results. I hope the evaluation depends not only on the assessment results but is a combination of experience, motivation, resume e.t.c.

Apr 26, 2018

You applied for which location?

Apr 26, 2018

I applied on 11 April. Didnt get any mail for assessment.
All the best to u guys

Apr 30, 2018

(London) With a week since the test deadlines... anyone heard anything about interviews? Online my application is still 'under review'.

Apr 30, 2018

Same for me. I emailed the HR but no reply. I guess like others mentioned we should wait till 21st may.

May 1, 2018

If you get any reply please let us know about it .

Anyone know the logistics of the second round interview? I'm interviewing with the Dubai office, and am based in the western US. Where would it take place in my case?

May 2, 2018

Hey! When was the deadline for the Dubai assessment?

May 1, 2018

Hi evaleva...
Do you get second round of interview call or first round of interview call ??
Because first round of interview was not done yet.

And for more clarification about logistics mail your querry to HR ,they will simply let you now.
But some where i have read that for second round of interview all arrangements are done by SHELL.
If you get any reply please let us know.

May 2, 2018

Submitted online tests on April 21st (London office).
Haven't heard from HR yet.

What about you guys who applied to London?

May 2, 2018

Nothing. Not even sure I have passed the online test, will see!

May 2, 2018

May 2, 2018

Just right now? I still got nothing

May 3, 2018

Did they mention in the mail like you didnt clear the test or something? Can you please post the screenshot of the mail?

May 3, 2018

At least it means you are allowed to already try again next year. Keep trying and practice the tests well in advance!

May 3, 2018

Hey guys, did anyone who applied to the Dubai office receive any news after the assessment?
(Also is everyone invited to take the assessment or is there CV screening prior?)

May 3, 2018

For London, I got a link to pass an online test before my CV had been reviewed. Have you checked your spam folder?

May 4, 2018

I didn't receive an email like this.

May 24, 2018
