Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Houston, TX

I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical in June 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was fair and productive. The recruiter asked important questions and they were easily answered. He allowed me to talk extensively about my career background and aspirations with the new company. I would have enjoyed the opportunity to have talked more and have the recruiter ask me in depth questions, but I guess this would have been done at a later time. The opportunities with this company seem to be very good, but there was no relocation package offered.

Interview Question – Why did a want a career change?   Answer Question

Health & Safety Specialist Interview

Health & Safety Specialist
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical.

Interview Details – The process took quite some time from start to finish. First there was a phone interview, two weeks later there was an in-person interview, and an offer came in six weeks after that. The face-to-face interview was a panel interview but the demeanor of the employees made it feel very laid back. It was a lot less intimidating than it sounds like it would be.

Interview Question – All the interview questions were very basic..."Explain a time when..." "Something you did to improve a process" and then some job-specific questions pertaining to my past experiences.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I made a counter offer that was not accepted.

Manhattan, KS

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical in September 2013.

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical.

Interview Details – Interviewer came to campus. I had met him on multiple occasions during the week, so I was comfortable with him already. The interview on campus was painless, no technical aspect at all. He really just asked questions about leadership and what I knew about their company. We spent a few minutes talking about volunteer work as well.

Interview Question – He asked where in Texas I'd like to work. Being from another state, I didn't know the listed cities all that well so it was very difficult to rank them. Be sure to either look up stuff about the cities where they have plants or what each plant does so you know where you want to work.   Answer Question
