    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Valero Energy in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the manager. It was pretty late in the semester (early April) so something must've happened like an intern declined last minute. I had another offer that I had to decide on in one week so they got back to me in that time.

    Associate Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Valero Energy (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Submitted application then received a call from HR to schedule a phone screen. After the phone screen an interview was then scheduled with 1-6 employees from the department. The interview process took about two hours which was understandable since there were 2 different groups who interviewed at different times. Easy process overall but not as easy as other interviews I've had. Also, I must say everyone was really friendly!

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you apply at Valero? What do you know about the position you applied for? Can you tell me about yourself? Why are you planning to leave your present job?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Valero Energy.

    Interview

    The Engineering Manager from the site calls you. They ask you a series of questions, which weren't behavioral questions. Usually they are. The questions were like what do you know about our site? Could tell me about your work experience and what you did there? Why do you feel this position is good fit for you? The interview was easy going, nothing technical related.
