    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    On site full day interview consisted of: HR and manager generic questions; one-on-one experience discussion with others in the department; interview with plant manager; interview with department head; lunch; tour; review of benefits with HR. Heard back after a few weeks, after other candidates were interviewed, with an offer. Very friendly, comfortable positive experience. Pre-employment process was thorough: back ground check, drug test, and work history verification.

    Interview

    Two people interviewed me on campus. They asked me standard questions and one "technical" question that just tested my critical thinking. There was no right answer to the question; the interviewers just wanted to see what kinds of ideas we could come up with. The interviewers were very amiable and graciously answered all my questions as well.
