    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline.

    Interview

    Received a phone call for a phone interview about a month after applying to a job posting. The interview seemed to go very well. I was asked about my background and was told more about the position. I was told I was going to be contacted for a follow up interview the next week. I was even sent a thank you email and the promise to reach out as soon the hiring managers had responded. After two weeks I sent a follow up email only to receive a response two week after that how I was not a good fit for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was an 1 1/2 interview. I was a little nervous, but the people there was very nice. They did an excellent job in making the interview process comfortable. They asked questions related to the job. They were serious about finding the right person for the position and I felt like I was the right person for the job. So, I did my best to answer the questions honestly.

    Pipeline Operator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline.

    Interview

    It was an extremely laid back setting, which was awesome. A panel interview that included a field hand, your (potentially) direct supervisor and the district manager. Lots of joking from the start really got the nerves to subside quickly. "Just a group of pipeliners here to bullsh*t with ya" is what the district manager described the interview as.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline (Houston, TX) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Went through a grueling on-the-phone(2 hour) and Face-to-Face (3 hour) Interview Process. Interview process consisted of a lot of questions not pertaining to the job description.
    Included a 4 hour non-standard programming test after the interviews, which the interviewer himself agreed cannot be completed in 4 hours. totally confused me on their expectations. This programming test was non-standard, do not know how it is graded. the problem had implementation of third party tools like telerik controls which was not mentioned in the job description at all, unrealistic expectations.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is your typical on campus interview process. To apply, you must submit your resume online. The HR department selects candidates to interview from the submitted resumes. The interview is a behavioral interview and asks you various questions about how you have reacted to certain scenarios in your lifetime. Be prepared and know as much as possible about the actual company because this is the first thing that they ask.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Plains All American Pipeline.

    Interview

    After applying online, got a call from HR after several weeks. Once I was called, a phone interview took place, and two days later an in person interview was scheduled for the following week. Received offer exactly a week after in person interview. Very conversational interview. Felt like they already knew you were qualified but wanted some specific details on your background and to gauge your personality to see if you would mesh with the culture. A very positive experience.

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate, the offer was generous and above my target.
