    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Motiva Enterprises (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute interview. Two people came in and provided a lot of questions, which for every question they had I knew to provide specific examples to each. Another important aspect of the interview was to never have a down moment in the interview, always keep the conversation flowing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Motiva Enterprises (Port Arthur, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back it consisted of two separate interviews with a set of 3 people at each room location. The questions in both interviews were fairly familiar so I'm guessing it was a way to compare each others evaluations of each one of the the people interviewing.
    Question 1: Tell us about yourself.
    Question 2: Tell us about a time you were in a situation that you felt was unsafe with a coworker and how did you intervene when the issue came up?
    Question 3: What would you say is your best skill, when it comes to the position you're applying for?
    Question 4: Dealing with a disgruntled employee, how do you fix the situation?

    Next set of interviewers

    Question 1: Tell us about yourself
    Question 2: When stuck with a difficult situation, how did you overcome the situation and what steps did you take?
    Question 3: Describe a time you worked as a team member to help resolve a issue and what steps help resolve the issue?

    Then they asked if I had any questions, I went on to ask about the plant and size of the facility overall.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Motiva Enterprises (Port Arthur, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Two panel interviews on the same day.
    Behavioral and scenario based questions were asked. Nothing two extreme, they just want to know who you are and if you're willing to learn, be dependable, and overall have good work ethic. After the interviews the HR rep stated it would be around 1-2 weeks until we'd hear something back. Sure enough a week later I received an email with a conditional employment offer pending drug screen, background, and physical.
