    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum (Atlanta, GA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview went well. The people treat you well. I did get the job offer but later found that I wasn't exactly qualified for what they required. It was only one interview and I was interviewed through a temp agency. They have their own corporate office in a convenient location and it seems the employees have a lot of fun.

    • When I was asked about Excel, I mentioned I was okay with it and that it's been years since I used the complicated processes in a few years. I was kind of thrown into the fire the first day when I realized I needed to study on some Excel again.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I answered a mass email from a recruiter about the opportunity. In the last 6-7 years I have done a fair amount of prediction and data mining work that had to be coupled with combinatorial optimization. The opportunity at RaceTrac was presented as something among those lines but with a focus on the optimization problem. I find their optimization problem to be very interesting!
    I was interviewed twice over the phone. The first interview was a preliminary screening. The second interview was technical and it was mostly about assessing my experience with optimization. After that I interviewed in person at RaceTrac's headquarters.
    The whole interview process and travel experience was great and organized really smoothly and swiftly!

    Interview Questions

    • Non of the questions were difficult or unexpected. I was asked about my experience and my previous closely related work. The software tools used are different than my tools of choice but it was made clear that it is not a problem for both sides.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They were very understanding and accommodating up to a point. It was made clear to me that I am a desired hire, but they consider me expensive. I did tell them that I really like the grand problem they want to solve and if I am happy with the job I would be very focused to derive solutions for its various facets.

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum (Atlanta, GA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    First had an phone interview that lasted about 40 minutes. The questions were basic background and industry related questions. About a week later I was asked to come in to have face to face interview with three different people. About a week and a half later asked me to come in and do the same thing with three different people from real estate division. They all asked me the same questions as the first time. Ended up feeling like I kept repeating myself over and over.

    The interview process was very straight forward and to the point. I applied online on a Thursday and the following Monday I received a phone call. By the following Thursday I had an interview. It was very thorough and in depth. I was asked a lot of questions that pertained to my leadership abilities and my previous management experience. It was a great Q&A.

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't much negotiation because the offer was pretty great. The only thing I didn't realize was how sucky the benefits package was. If it had been presented I definitely would have negotiated those terms.

    Interview

    HR behavioral interview. Asked questions about experience and resume. She was nice but did not return my phone call when I asked for feedback on why I did not get the offer. I think it was because of pay, they were offering $10K below average and what I was expecting.
