jayboy in Dallas, Texas said: I was invited to test at valero in the houston/texas city area. I have a few questions. First, has anyone tested at valero and if so what is the use of information portion of the test.

How difficult is the test? I have basic mechanical aptitude like gears, pulleys, levers, basic math, etc... Is there anything else the test focuses on. Is the test multiple choice? I heard quite a bit of common sense is on there but also heard it has gotten harder to weed out people.

Any comments would be appreciated. I'm really nervous since this is my first mechanical aptitude type test.

hi....HOW WAS YOUR TEST AT VALERO? CAN YOU PLS TELL ME WHAT THEY ASK AND WHAT IS IMPORTANT

Pretty easy. Some mechanical appitude, a use of information section, and a behavioral portion. Nothing to worry about if you ask me!

Sorry, I am just getting back to you. I am going to assume that you took the test and did well! You should have had enough time to finish each section. The behavioral part is unlimited!

Yeah, I took the test in Norco about a month ago. My interview is tomorrow. My friend just hired on with Valero and said the interview is all situational. Really laid back group that interviewed him from what he said.

I believe the whole group made it. I would assume they did considering you have plenty of opportunities to pass and who would want to quit? Lol

@bwilliams81 Thanks for ur response. I had a very short interview at a career fair. But i was told that I would have another interview if i do gud on the test.I dont think be late for a call. As long as they have not emailed you of thier response then they are still in the decision process. I have applied to various valero positions in the past and they always informed me of there decision not to hire me.

the valero test is mechanical and informational... its really nothing to worry about but be very detail orient and pay close attention to the questions.in the mechanical part if you use process of elimination it will be easy.

The test that they are taking is probably for the relief operator positions. I saw that they posted them a couple of weeks ago.

RyanA in Cypress, Texas said: I have taken the Valero test and passed. If you have ever taken a test for one the plants or refineries it is all the same. The test consists of 3 parts. The last part is a no brainer asking you behavioral questions. I would brush up on your test taking skills in general in order to ensure that you have enough time to complete the first two sections. Good luck!

im scheduled to take the test in a week..im nervous and wanted to know what's the test consist of? is it hard? will you know that day if you pass or not? how is the interview process work? any sample question or advice will be appreciated..thanks
