    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Atlas Oil (Victoria, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was top notch once I got past the recruitment department (total waste of time). The onsite management team was very prepared, professional, and very easy to talk to. One thing I noticed was how organized they were in the way of being able to each ask different questions but always complimenting the others question.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Atlas Oil (Birmingham, MI).

    Interview

    Lots of bs. Regaled in the corporate bs. Truly, I was misled and even though I read through the information on glassdoor, I thought I could make change. I was wrong.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Atlas Oil.

    Interview

    After a phone interview, I was invited to an in-office interview. During the in office interview, I met with a group panel and 1:1. Their offices are very nice- very modern and they try to show that they are a fun and energetic company. They are also great on pay and their benefits seemed to be ok as well- but comments were made during my interview that matched up with reviews I had read previously and made me seem like it was a job I would be there for the money, but not for a long term career.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any- very unusual as I had been interviewing a lot of places during that time period but they did not. The HR Manager or whatever her title was, was literally taking note ideas, no of me, but of ideas from my experience to use.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Was told it was a very good company- good business but very hard working environment. By hard working, what was meant that it was a difficult environment in the office to get along etc. Asked them about their glass door reviews when I went to interview as they were very bad- and they said they just weren't hiring the right people. Being an HR Professional, I know that happens some of the time. But it can't happen as often as it seemed to with this company or you have the wrong person hiring.

    Intern Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Atlas Oil in March 2013.

    Interview

    Environment was very open and relaxed. HR manager comes in and does a "formal" session. This is just general things such as "if your willing to travel, etc.." Then a possible co-worker comes in and asks more about your experience with the requirements of the position you are applying for. As I remember, there is no guidelines for the questions. We talked a bit about the company and what I would be doing, I gave my experience and that was it. Nothing too difficult.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Atlas Oil.

    Interview

    This was a lengthy process. I was first contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. I was then called to come in for an interview about a week later. I interviewed with another HR person and 2 managers (one which was my direct report). I then was called to interview with a VP. Pretty basic stuff and each person was very nice. Just a bad company to work for. Pass on this place. The turnover is extremely high. Each person I interviewed with resigned and that was less than a year ago.

    Negotiation

    They would not budge.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Taylor, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Atlas Oil (Taylor, MI).

    Interview

    Very involved process that takes three times longer than it should. I interviewed with six different VPs and Directors via phone, and then had an additional four in-person interviews over a six week period. This gave me the impression that this was a thorough and detailed organization. I discovered later that the lengthy and multiple person interview process was simply due to internal inefficiencies, poor (no) inter-departmental comunication and information sharing, and an very go-through-the motion process on the part of most of the interviewees.

    Interview Questions

    • None, most of my interviewers went through the motions and simply needed to get this item checked off of their To-Do list. Most of the questions delt with my experience and background - "Have you ever done this/managed that?" This was merely an investigation into how much of their current workload they could pawn off on me after I was hired.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Nickle and dime stuff. I felt like they were trying to get me at the cheapest possible cost. In hindsight, I should have held firmon my saklary expectations and if not met, simply walked away.

    Director of Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Atlas Oil in August 2010.

    Interview

    Multiple phone screenings by HR then a phone interview with the EVP then 5 interviews in Taylor, MI then a visit to the office and a market visit. Overall, it was a very thorough process. Shame that almost nothing that was promised was actually delivered!
    Listening carefully to some of what the employees were implying during the market visit would have helped in seeing through the smoke screen
