    Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. However, the company kept probing me for salary information from my employer at the time and made me very uncomfortable. In the end, Valero said they would get back with me in 2 weeks but never did. Very unprofessional. If Valero treats you like this in an interview, do you think they will treat you any better as an employer? It was a blessing in disguise as I was given nice job offers from their direct competitors.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Valero Energy.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR the morning after submitting an application online, and a phone interview was scheduled for the following week with the hiring manager. I was contacted a couple of days after the phone interview in order to schedule an on-site. The on-site was a thirty minute interview where about five people asked you generic behavioral questions. It was very impersonal and rehearsed. No plant tour was offered. I was taken to lunch where I had to be polite during some very inappropriate conversation. I have always felt confident and relaxed during the interview process, but this was extremely unpleasant. One of the interviewers was discussing some fairly vulgar things to the point that I would not feel safe working with this person. I have talked about this interview with other people who are hiring managers and engineers, and they also voiced their concerns about how inappropriate and unprofessional it was. I removed my application from consideration due to the negative experience. I was told I would be contacted for a final decision within a week, but even after removing my application, they still contacted me about two months later to tell me I did not receive the job.
