    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron.

    Interview

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron (Richmond, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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
