    Entry Level Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (The Woodlands, TX).

    Interview

    Recruitment is a process.

    I applied through my university career site after meeting with a group of representatives at a career fair on campus. I was selected for an on-campus interview where I visisted separately with two managers a few days after the career fair.

    About three weeks after on-campus interviews I was notified I was selected for an office interview. It consisted of lunch with two employees and then four rounds of interviews with different group managers which lasted approximately 30-45 minutes each.

    Two weeks after the office interviews I was notified that I was not selected for the position.

    Overall the experience was a great one. Everyone I interviewed with was pleasant and I feel this interview process helped prep me extensively for other interviews I have had since then.

    Interview Questions

    • On campus: Questions were basic conversational style. "Walk me through your resume' and "Tell me about yourself'.

      Office: Behavioral type questions. "Tell me about a time you..." and "Give me an example of when..."   1 Answer

    In the interview they asked alot of safety related scenario questions, what do I know about the company and why did I want to work there.

I already knew what products the company made and how they made them, I already thought of every safety issue I had at previous jobs so I was ready for those questions.. Prepare, prepare and prepare... Answers should include safety and team work on every question if possible.

    Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Columbia, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (West Columbia, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward online application, then selected for testing. The test is really easy if you are in any Ptech program. Then if you pass the initial test, you are selected to take the Cobra simulation test. Once you pass this, they will narrow their results and select you for an interview!

    The interview I would have to say has been one of the best experiences thus far and I have interviewed with other companies in the same industry. Very positive and easy going as far as the style and Types of questions they ask. Be truthful and be yourself! Do some research before you go. I happened to have had lots of research done before interview because they have been my number one pick from the get go.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical in October 2016.

    Interview

    Brief 30 minute in-person interview and a followup phone interview. The in-person interview was very behavior based and there were a lot of questions about how I handle situations at work. Be thinking beforehand about times when you've struggled professionally and how you have overcome professional challenges. Also make sure you have basic knowledge of the company's history and what Chevron Phillips Chemical does.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavioral interview questions like "give me an example of a time when you..."

      The phone interview was mainly just asking me about my experience and going over my resume   1 Answer

    One of the best interview experiences I've ever had. Interviewer was very respectful, kind, and understanding. Reflects very well on the company as a whole and shows a culture that any engineer would be proud to be apart of. This is something Chevron Phillips should be extremely proud of.
