    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very basic online application, that was filled out in less than 30 minutes. After about 2 weeks they called back and did a brief phone screen interview, then requested that I come in for a 1:1 interview. The interview process was pretty basic, and very relaxed.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    One of the best processes I've been involved in. Detailed multiple interviews. This company is well represented. And I'm happy to be employed by them. They did not speak to me as if they were better than me. Very approachable which made the whole process detailed but comfortable.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum in October 2014.

    Interview

    I know i filled out an application for at least 3 of the nearby Racetracs for me. I received a call within the next 3 days from the Homosassa location. A few simple starter questions were asked and before getting off the the phone I was asked to come in for an interview. I was interviewed by 2 racetrac employees and they were friendly and full of energy. After maybe 15 mins of interviewing, we shook hands and they told me if I was qualified, they would call me by 6 pm that night. They called me within 30 mins, not even an hour later with an opportunity for a 2nd interview, with the racetrac closer to home. I was pretty happy about that, I wasn't expecting a call back that quick or for them to try and get me into one closer to me. The 2nd interview was for the following day, I went in and met the manager and 2 co-workers there and it was just awesome all over again. Again friendly and full of energy and this time I had to wait maybe an hour in a half to 2 hours for a call back, so super nervous hahaha. Got a call back and was told when orientation started, only part of orientation I didn't like, was having to go to Tampa but overall it was all good. In my 2nd day of training right now and got 2 more to go. So yea everything seems to be going good.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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.
