    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical.

    Interview Details

    First spoke with a recruiter at my university's career fair. After a brief interview on campus they offered to fly me to Houston for an on site interview. They took me to dinner the night before, breakfast the morning of, and lunch. At each meal there were two other engineers who talked about the city, the plant, etc.
    I had 6 separate interviews throughout the day. They were very personable and focused on safety at the plant. They did not just have their head down and pen to the paper like other companies.
    Have examples prepared where you followed company protocol despite pressure from coworkers, management, etc.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical.

    Interview Details

    I went to my school's engineering career fair at which point I spoke to a representative from Chevron Phillips. The following night, I received a phone call from a company rep asking if I'd like to interview with CPChem the following day. I interviewed with two people from the company whom I did not see at the career fair--both of them were fairly recent graduates of my university. The interview had a very relaxed atmosphere and the interviewers were very encouraging when I asked for a few moments to think about a question. Overall, very positive interviewing experience. Am hoping to hear back from them for the second round!

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was fair and productive. The recruiter asked important questions and they were easily answered. He allowed me to talk extensively about my career background and aspirations with the new company. I would have enjoyed the opportunity to have talked more and have the recruiter ask me in depth questions, but I guess this would have been done at a later time. The opportunities with this company seem to be very good, but there was no relocation package offered.

    First brought in by headhunter. Had one on one meeting and preliminary screen. Headhunter then proceeded to setup interview with Chevron Phillips in their main campus. Five different people involved. Interview involved many technical aspects and lots of safety questions. It was a very long interview with lots of repetitive questions, very thorough but it sure made for a very long afternoon.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer came to campus. I had met him on multiple occasions during the week, so I was comfortable with him already. The interview on campus was painless, no technical aspect at all. He really just asked questions about leadership and what I knew about their company. We spent a few minutes talking about volunteer work as well.

    Interview Questions
    • He asked where in Texas I'd like to work. Being from another state, I didn't know the listed cities all that well so it was very difficult to rank them. Be sure to either look up stuff about the cities where they have plants or what each plant does so you know where you want to work.   Answer Question
