I Take it that your test on the 25th was with tesoro. The main thing that they are looking for is someone that is safety minded. If you get an interview show them that you are a safe worker by your work experience. Never answer a question that would make it look like you will or have ever compromised your or another persons safety. Besides a safe worker they are looking for someone that is committed. This is an industry that does not tolerate people that like lots of time of or call out for dumb reasons. so if you can show them you will be dependable they will like you. Also they interview using the STAR method so goolge it and learn how to answer questions in this format. Good luck and dont give up it takes most people years to get into this industry if you do not have connections.

Sir, I would love a copy of your resume. I am nearly complete with my process plant tech school. with my vast military experience it is difficult to translate my skills into a formidable resume to submit to refineries.
