Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum in November 2013.
Interview Details – I went through 2 different interviews. The first interview was with a person from HR followed by the hiring manager (separately). The second interview was as series of 3 30 minute session with the VP of the division I would be working in, the hiring manager, and the director of the department I would be working in. These were separate as well.
Interview Question – None really...I talked about nonsense with the VP for the whole 30 minutes. Answer Question

Operations Research Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum.
Interview Details – 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 Question – 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. View Answer
Negotiation Details – 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.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum in May 2012.

Interview Question – The most difficult question during the interview was what could I bring to the team. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I had dread locks and was given the option to cut them and accept the job, i felt that i was very well literate enough to handle the job and shouldn't have had to cut my hair. It wasn't too stand-off'ish but i agreed to cut my hair. I feel that the dress code should accept dread locks at least for night associates.
