Houston, TX

The process took a day - interviewed at Chevron in August 2008.

Interview Details – Contacted through career services, had an initial dinner with them the night before, then went to their offices the next day.
3 one on one interviews, about 45 minutes each.
They mostly asked the same questions, so I was unsure if I should tell the same stories over and over.
I tried to vary it up a bit and by the time I got to the last interviewer I had run out of new examples and flubbed it.
Turns out you CAN tell the same stories over and over.... just a tip.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Chevron in July 2007.

Interview Details – Overall good interview and very well prepared interviewer.
The interviewer was very well informed about the company, the different career paths, benefits, and other perks. The interview followed the typical behavioral interview format. There was good flow of information in both directions. The interviewer was focused on determining whether I was a match for the company and was also interested in finding out what were my major inclinations with respect to my career path.

The process took a day - interviewed at Chevron in April 2012.

Interview Details – It was a behavioral interview-- wasn't too difficult as long as you kept on your feet about answering the interviewer's questions. Chevron seems like a great place to work; however, I'm not sure if the oil industry is the right place for me after talking to the interviewer. More importantly, they heavily recruit potential employees who have been in the oil industry before.

Interview Question – Tell about a time that you had difficulty working in a team and how did you resolve the issues.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Chevron in June 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring process for internship through the training programme in which I was hired was not so procedural. It simply entailed organizing a test for quite a couple of us based on our cummulative grade point average in school and nothing more i.e it didn't not entail the use of cirriculum vitae(CV) in the selection process. The test entailed both quantitative and verbal aptitude questions, as well as questions relating to our section of training.

Interview Question – The selection process was simply a test   Answer Question

Beijing, Beijing (China)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Chevron in October 2011.

Interview Details – In the panel interview, there were three people, including the head of the area trainers. I assume the other two were area trainers, though it was never stated. The first part of the interview was a general discussion of the position again. Then they took turns asking pre-determined questions and taking notes. There were questions in the area of training, multi-tasking and safety. An example question: “Tell me about a time that you had to multi-task a project.” Another was “Tell me about a training experience. How did it go and what could have been done differently or better?”

Interview Question – How have you used your personal network to solve a problem?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – well-prepare
