    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chevron in December 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with training manager and personnel manager. Both had strong backgrounds in maritime industry and were very easy to talk with. The interview was very laid back and casual, I mainly just spoke freely as if I were in a normal conversation with two people. I did have positive feed back after the interview however the time of start and logistics involved to get me where I needed to be for the job were too much. I will be applying again in the future.
