    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical.

    Interview

    Spoke with CP Chem at Career Fair and received a call from them the same night to see if I was interested in a next day interview. The interview was 1:1 and it was very relaxed, the interviewer did a great job of sharing their experience at CPChem. Less than a week later I was contacted by a site HR person to schedule a phone interview, about two weeks later I had the phone interview which was a panel interview. This interview was also really relaxed they shared their background and were really interested in getting to know me. The next day, they called and made an offer. Something that I was very impressed with was how great of a job they did to make sure that the company was a good fit for me as a candidate.

    Health & Safety Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The process took quite some time from start to finish. First there was a phone interview, two weeks later there was an in-person interview, and an offer came in six weeks after that. The face-to-face interview was a panel interview but the demeanor of the employees made it feel very laid back. It was a lot less intimidating than it sounds like it would be.

    Interview Questions

    • All the interview questions were very basic..."Explain a time when..." "Something you did to improve a process" and then some job-specific questions pertaining to my past experiences.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I made a counter offer that was not accepted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (Beaumont, TX) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Applied for position on company Careers Website and answered basic questions and uploaded resume. I was contacted for a face to face interview, but it was to be at a restaurant in the evening. This was due to the busy schedules of the interviewers. I was interviewed by the Plant Manager, the Project Dept. Manager, and HR Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Due to the abnormal interview location (at a restaurant and not at the plant), the Plant Manager dispensed with regular Q&A process and she said "Tell about yourself, your background, and your qualifications for the position." They did followup with some questions based on my narrative about me. I have much experinece and wanted to say as much as I could about my qualities, so the process (including eating - I ate little of my dinner) took 2 hours.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The interview was last night, but I expact an offer.
