    Interview

    There are a few stages in the hiring process including multiple interviews. Usually you are asked pretty standard questions. What most people don't know, however, is that Chevron's drug tests include both a hair and urine sample. They will spring it on you at an unexpected time so be prepared!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Chevron (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    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.
