Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron (Bakersfield, CA) in October 2011.

Aside for a few minutes of learning about your background. You will be asked to tell a story when... (up to 5 situations depending on the time limit) Those questions want to find out more about how you solved problems in the past i.e. how you resolved conflict in team format as well as assess your leadership potential and find out more about your personality.

  • One example is "please tell me a time that you worked in a team and faced a conflict, what did you do?". Just a quick tip here. You would have increase your chance by telling your story following a STAR method... Situation, Tasks, Action, and Results. Be as specific as possible when you tell your story. Good luck.   1 Answer
