    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Phillips 66 (Linden, NJ) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied in late October and received a call from HR for a phone interview in December. I participated in the phone interview phase with the lab manager...which was really like I was having a conversation with a colleague. It was very laid back and not tense at all. Then I moved to the face-to-face interview in January. I was somewhat of a group panel style of interview. The interviewers were broken down into pairs. I interviewed with HR, Lab Lead, Lab Manager, 2 Chemists, and a Lab Supervisor. All were very friendly and very genuine. The in person interview lasted majority of the day.

    Operations Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Phillips 66 (West Columbia, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Online application, if you meet criteria of what they are looking for you will receive a follow up email to invite you to take a "battery of test" The test are fairly easy and I would suggest brushing up on your algebra slightly exp. 2x=10 (solve for x) Also look into mechanical aptitude test books or just look online. The last part of the test is a personality test in my opinion similar to taking a Myers Briggs.

    Next phase you will receive a confirmation email stating that you passed and that your score is on file for a year. From there you will either be notified you have been selected for an interview or you may not receive an email for interview.

    I applied August 28th 2015 for the Sweeny, Texas location and was selected 3 months later for an interview scheduled December 2015- this was a roller coaster for me because I am new to the industry and did not know the process could take so long. To be fair there was a huge set back with a new unit during this phase , I'm thinking this had to do with the delays.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Phillips 66 in December 2014.

    Interview

    Recruited through contract headhunting firm. Just 2 days before the interview date and had to schedule a whole day (5:30a-4p) for the testing process. Was given wrong time to meet at first and did not see correction in time. We were greeted by three reps from the company. HR, Senior, and junior members. We were first given timed testing in three parts. Math&reasoning, Mechanical aptitude, followed by the dreaded Psych(out) test. This is where most "Fail" to grasp any sort of meaning. Watch the time! They say they will give out time warnings but they only call out the last 5 minute warning.

    They send off the scantron test form to be graded after a week. They do a panel interview with the senior and junior member after that at a pre-set time. Nothing too difficult. Be open and honest with them about strengths and goals.

    The bad thing about this experience as you might have gathered is the personality test. They give no feedback on the results. You don't know where it comes from, what studies it is based on (if ANY), or what to improve on. I don't think I would apply again due to the lack of transparency in the testing process.
