I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chevron (Ann Arbor, MI) in Sep 2017

Interview

The interview was very behavioral. No technical questions, but it seemed like they were trying to get to know me and learn about my resume. The recruiters were very friendly and I walked out of the interview feeling very optimistic. However the odds of getting a Chevron internship are pretty low. At my University, I'm guessing they talked to a hundred (or many more) people the day before the interviews, interviewed a dozen or so, and hired and handful from there. For internships, it's a single interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron (Richmond, CA) in Dec 2014

Interview

I was invited for an interview with a recruiter after meeting chevron on campus at a career fair. The interview was STAR based and dealt with different behavioral aspects of the job. I had prepared a few different scenarios after reviewing the STAR format online.. They give you time to think and to respond to the questions asked but I would suggest that you prepare a few experiences, ranging from sometime you had to make a difficult decision to times you were a leader.. basic behavioral situations. Part of this interview that sticks out was a time when I was asked about being in a difficult situation. I talked about a time I was stumped and didn't know how to approach problem at a past job, so I admitted that to a superior and was helped out. My interviewer mentioned that this was a great example because as a facilities engineer, and new college graduate, there will be many many times when you come across something you don't know and will NEED to ask for help. Recognizing the limits to what you know is a valuable skill. I was invited for an on site interview at the refinery after a week or two. I was contacted by my "host" who was another facilities engineer. They gave me an interview schedule and informed me that I would be giving a presentation. The presentation was on anything I wanted, but should be technical in nature. The day started with my ~12-15 presentation and ~10-20 minutes spent on questions/answers -- be sure to know your stuff when it comes to whatever technical presentation you give. They are looking at how well of a communicator you are and if you can put complex ideas/conceptualization into plain english. Then came a few technical interviews on engineering fundamentals (some questions listed below) and a tour of the facilities. Finally the day ended with an interview with a higher-up manager but this was more like you interviewing the manager (rather than you being interviewed). It serves the purpose to talk about questions you have about the position, the benefits that chevron provides its employees, perks, etc.. I would prepare a lot of questions before getting on site. You interview with many people about the job and each one is going to ask you if you have any questions. I felt kind of bad about this interview because I had run out of questions through the day and I think the manager was expecting more questions out of me. If I could do it over I would have asked about 401k specifics, health insurance specifics, vacation time specifics, what aspects of the job are open to negotiations (salary, vacation days, starting date).

Interview Questions
  • Technical on-site questions: Take me through what happens in a refinery -- from when crude comes in, to oil/gas/final product going out. Name a few different types of pumps? What are some ways you can join pipes together? Welding, Flange/Fasteners, Mated pipes Questions on piping a fluid? Inertia effects, (rho*g*h) = pressure, Bernoulli's eqn's... Fundamentally how a cracking tower works?

Interview

The interviewer was friendly and nice. The process was explained clearly before hand and the questions were clear and to the point. Felt relaxed and comfortable. The interview was mainly behavioral with some questions about experience and resume. Overall great experience. I would recommend looking back at your experience and thinking about different challenges or achievements that you have accomplished. This will make it easier to answer the questions during the interview.
