    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Chevron.

    Interview Details

    Finance MBA Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Chevron in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    If you are not at one of Chevron's "core" schools that recruits on-campus, you will have to attend a conference and network with Chevron Finance employees in order to have a chance at a first round interview. The earlier in the school year you do this, the better - all first round interviews are completed by early November with second rounds shortly thereafter.

    Summer Intern - Facilities Engineer (Electrical Engineer In Technical Department) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chevron in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied and interviewed through my university. Two young Chevron representatives who worked within the area I applied for conducted the interview. The questions were entirely behavioral and not difficult. They especially look for leadership skills and personality in addition to your credentials. At the end they asked if I had other offers, and to let them know if I had to accept by a certain date. I did, and notified them. I received an offer within two weeks.

    Since it is such a large company, the process was a bit impersonal and I struggled figuring out who to contact. I was not able to receive a detailed explanation of what I would be doing during the internship.

    Interview Questions
    • They will want to hear about experiences on your resume.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, but I was granted a large relocation stipend considering the cost of living in El Segundo.
