    Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wichita, KS
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Flint Hills Resources (Wichita, KS) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Received a phone interview a week after applying. Booked an in person interview a week later. FHR does a great job of booking the in-person interview. They flew me out to Kansas, gave me spending money, and put me up in a hotel. The next day I had a 4 hour interview that went really well. I truly nailed the interview and knew I would get a job offer soon. And then 4 weeks passed without hearing a single word from them....

    Totally ghosted. Not a single word. I had to call several times and talk to several people before I could confirm my fate. "Sorry, we hired an internal candidate," was the answer I got. Why even interview outside candidates if that was what they were going to do?

    I guess I'm better off not getting the job if that's the games they play there.

    oh, I agree with everyone else, they ask a bunch of vague situational questions to see how you will react. I studied up on them in the days leading up to the interview and knocked them out of the park but I guess that wasn't good enough for them.
