    Interview

    I was contacted by an Hr person form the corporate office in Kansas. They set up an interview with the HR Manager or peer level person at a similar or the same plant in Corpus Christi. She seemed rushed like she had a few more interviews to do after me that morning. The questions were oriented around team and delivering bad news, with the current economy I believe they need someone who can handle laying people off. I was a long shot for the posiotn due to my current location, it woudl have required a relocation package and I may had had toomuch experience in HR.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Flint Hills Resources (Wichita, KS) in October 2014.

    Interview

    There was a dinner the night prior to the interview, in which I was able to get a better grasp for the company and the employees I could potentially work with. Once I got through the first round, I was invited to Wichita, KS for a final round interview. There was a dinner the night prior to the interview again, in which I got to meet more people from the company and network. I got to know the employees on a personal level and interviewed with two people I had spoken with the night before. The interview process was all behavioral, primarily focused on how you approach problems and how you handle different situations. Their current talent acquisition program is the best that I have experienced, with giving the candidates exposure to many different employees to network while also asking you important questions to see what makes you unique.
