I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron.
Good straight forward interview, I talked to three different interviewers and their questions were smooth, nice and straight forward. Human Resources discussions were also great, they work you thru the process in the very best way imaginable, except for when they nervously started asking for my immigration status and related things of that nature.

they have good engineers working on their staff. HR was helpful and guided through the process very well. The group I interviewed with talked freely and made me feel like home. One should go with an open and a peaceful mindset when going to their interview.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron.
Started as Temp to Perm so i only interviewed with the hiring manager. The interview process was typical for a temp to perm employee. All background checks and skill set checks etc are done but he staffing agency, so the company doesn't have to do any of that. They still interview you to make sure you are a good fit with the company & manager etc.
- typical interview questions, you are given scenarios and asked how you would handle describe your last job and your contribution what are your strengths and weaknesses Answer Question
Temp to perm so no real negotiation

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron (Richmond, CA) in July 2014.
Two interviews - one screening via telephone, one on site. The screening interview was very positive. The on-site interview was with a group of professionals related to the position. It began very well. However, a portion of the corporate interview structure involved describing past achievements with specific, measurable details. I was unprepared to answer in sufficient detail for their process.
- Several questions regarding specific technical details and itemized monetary payoff of technical support from projects completed multiple years ago. Example: What brand/part did you use to improve equipment for [specific process]? How much monetary gain/savings resulted? 1 Answer

Very professional, was not intimidating at all. Two person interview asked simple questions must have some basic knowledge of the company and its competitors.

Will personally email you within a couple months to let u know

This is a contractor (green card) position. Panel interview - pretty straightforward. Past experience and situational questions. Follow-up conversations over the phone along with an offer. This process is somewhat slow, be patient.
