    I/S Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 months - interviewed at NuStar Energy.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening then direct interview. Months passed waiting for a decision.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unusual; NuStar doesn't train their staff or management how to screen employees. So they have no idea how to interview.

      I was gang-interviewed by a senior manager, a project lead and a senior technical guy.

    Terminal Controller Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NuStar Energy in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The overall experience I've had has been very positive. The HR dept, Managers, and Director I have talked to during the process have been very professional and down to earth. I've personally had difficulty with various companies getting interviews to line up with my current employers schedule (3rd shift), and the HR dept had no problem. After making it past the phone interview, I was called in for a second interview with (within a week) a panel of managers that oversee the department. I was then called back a couple days later for an interview with the director of the department. I'm now waiting on a call to see if I get an offer.

    GIS Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at NuStar Energy in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview first, then interviewed in San Antonio a few weeks later. The interview process took a while (2 hours or so). I was supposed to meet with an HR rep first, then interview with the GIS department, but the HR rep wasn't available. Right off the bat, I kind of got the impression that we were winging it. I had the opportunity to speak with basically every one in the GIS department and they told me about what they did on a daily basis, how they liked their job, etc etc. I found this to be really informative, kinda fun, and just flat out cool (if you're into GIS). I also got to have a nice chat with one of the managers that the GIS dept reports to. Great guy.

    After that, I went into a conference room with the head of the department and four other guys. Honestly, to this day I'm not sure whether I blew it, or whether their interviews are always that awkward. I was asked questions like: "How's your attention to detail?"...I would answer something along the lines of: "I have very good attention to detail, I'm patient and I like to get things done right the first time."...then I'd be asked: "Well do you spend too much time on details?". Throughout most of the interview, I felt as if I was being set up with questions designed to back me into a corner. The main interviewer didn't pay attention at all when other interviewers would ask questions, and rarely made eye contact.

    After this, I was taken downstairs to the HR department. The woman in HR asked me the stereotypical personality assessment questions, then asked to look at my resume. After looking at my resume she looked up and said, "We require a minimum of a 3.0 GPA for this position, you won't be eligible for this position unless you have that". I was disgusted. There were at least 30 or more candidates that applied for this position. 15 of those got phone interviews. 3 of those (including myself) were invited to San Antonio for face to face interviews. You're telling me that no one in HR looked at my resume beforehand and said "Hey, this guy's GPA is too low".

    I was in the middle of finals and took the day off to drive four hours to and from San Antonio for an interview that consisted of being asked trick questions for a few hours and then being told that my GPA was too low. Not a pleasant experience in the least.

    Technical Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at NuStar Energy in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interview was professional and managers presented an optimistic and enthusiastic attitude towards the company. Asked questions about WCF and SOA. You definitely need to be up to date on your .NET Framework 3.5 skills in order to impress. I think I botched the interview with my current job dissatisfaction and by not knowing about WCF.

    Attorney Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at NuStar Energy in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    I think I had a phone interview first, which was very short. Then I went in for one on one interviews with several of the attorneys at Nu Star. Overall, I had a very positive experience. The attorneys were very nice and competent. It seemed to be a more conservative and regimented culture, but overall a good place to work.
