    Went out of business and closed refinery too soon.

    Executive Secretary Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HOVENSA (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was very easy but there were lots of questions. It was a panel interview with 3 Managers. They were very pleasant and we got along from the get-go. The organization has lots of great people. Great place to work. If I were to do it again I would have negotiated better in the negotiation phase.
