    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Chevron in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy. 6 months from my first phone interview to my first day on the job. Interview process consisted of an initial phone interview with an HR representative, then 2 interviews in the office, each with multiple employees and managers. I was given plenty of opportunities to ask questions of my own about the company culture, work expectations, growth opportunity, etc. All of my questions were well received and answered. Overall, it was a difficult interview process with lots of questions concerning my technical ability and business knowledge.

    Application Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Chevron.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume on the company's website and got a call from a Project Manager the following week. He talked about the position and I felt the position was a good fit so we scheduled a face to face. I interviewed with a panel of four. One of the panel members was on video conference from Calf. They each rotated and asked behavioral questions. They asked around 20 questions. They didn't ask any technical questions. Overall, I felt that the interview was very easy and I felt comfortable throughout the interview. I left the interview confident that I landed the job.

    Usually, HR contacts candidate to screen and schedule interviews. This didn't happen in my case. The PM that contacted me didn't tell me the salary range for this position. I heard Chevron pays very well and was not concerned. More than a week after my interview, the manager sent me an email stating that they were very interested in extending an offer. Everything looked good but the salary was 10% lower than my current salary. I was willing to take a pay cut for an opportunity to join Chevron so I ask them to meet me half way and I asked for more. The manager contacted HR and his supervisor but they would not negotiate. Regardless, the salary was above average. However, not enough to attract me.

    I wish I would have known the salary range prior to the interview. Everyone could have avoided wasted time. Overall, I walk away with a positive attitude. The panel was friendly and I know how to ace the interview at Chevron. I will continue to pursue a position at Chevron that is within my acceptable salary range. In the end, I learned several lessons that will help me be successful the next time I interview with Chevron.

    The interview process was very simple. A staffing agency contacted me for a phone interview. Someone from HR called and we had a 15-20 minute telephone interview. The standard questions were about how to deal with co-workers in the workplace, honesty, and "what if" situations.
