Everyone knows the Citgo logo, or ‘trimark’.  It has become an integral part of baseball as you can see the sign in the background of Fenway Park in Boston and it also featured in the baseball-themed movie Field of Dreams.  The sign itself is also attached to Boston University, so Citgo really is part of the community.

The company itself was founded by Henry Doherty back in 1910.  The company has undergone some restructuring over the past century but it is now owned by PDV America, Inc which is a subsidiary of Petróleos de Venezuela.  Its headquarters used to be in Oklahoma but have since been moved to the Energy Corridor in Houston, Texas.

Citgo prides itself on being dedicated to not only its current employees, but also its former ones.  There is an Alumni community for former employees to stay connected and to help them with access to benefits.  Many retired employees still take part in community programs with the backing of the company.

What is your biggest weakness?  Many people are afraid of this question because they don’t want to be negative, but you can get around it by talking about how you are working on improving yourself for example through further training.
