    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Business has stability, not going anywhere any time soon.

    Cons

    Five hour shifts, treated with distrust and suspicion, worked like dogs, blamed for anything that goes wrong, my location has racially bias hiring standards, often asked to violate epa laws, forego safety measures, not given breaks, no holiday pay or overtime pay. Aside from 401k, the location I work at offers no benefits of any kind.

    Advice to Management

    These are all things the owners have done since I began working there a year and a half ago.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chevron (Bakersfield, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was a full day. I showed up at 8 am and was led around the building to meet some people. I sat with an Earth Scientist for an hour who showed me what he was working on with a modeling program. Afterwards, I was given a presentation that entailed an overview of benefits given by the company. Afterwards, I was interviewed by a panel of 3 which lasted about an hour and a half. Then, I was taken out to lunch. When I returned, I met with another HR rep and then was taken for about an hour ride around town just to be introduced to the area. All in all, a very thorough and enlightening interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted to know more about my past work/educational experiences. We discussed what I had done for my thesis and then talked about some software with which I was familiar that they use at that particular office. I think they were just trying to get a feel for my level of competence.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate.
