    Lab Technician Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HollyFrontier Corporation (Tulsa, OK) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was escorted into the refinery by one of the chemists from the lab. The interview took place in a small library around a conference table. The interviewers were a hiring committee composed of employees from throughout the refinery. Also present was the individual from HR who had scheduled the interview with me and one of the chemists from the lab which I was applying to work at. Each individual had a copy of my resume along with a form with spaces for notes and preassigned questions they were to ask. After the actual interview I was given a tour of the lab spaces I would be working in by another chemist and escorted out of the refinery.

    Systems Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at HollyFrontier Corporation (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very Long and cumbersome interview process. You will get the impression the company values people, and you may think they are putting in a lot of effort to find the right person, this is not true. The environment has a cult vibe to it. If you are a sheep and would have followed Charles Manson, this is the place for you .
