    Interview

    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.

    Chemical Engineering Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (College Station, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Generally went well. Guy was very laid back about the entire process. Several interviewers were interviewing other students in the same building. There was one extra person directing students to room who was up for chatting. Questions were not too hard, and the atmosphere was relaxed, but it was easy to see that they deal with hiring qualified individuals. I got a response within two weeks saying that they were pursuing other candidates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (Sweeny, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was an interview with 2 HR reps, a several lab supervisors, and I believe an executive. They all asked general past experience questions. I was not expecting a panel interview and was very nervous. I feel they could've let me know what to expect, but I guess fair is "just a place we take the kids in the fall." They were all nice, but I felt like none of them wanted to be there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (Sweeny, TX).

    Interview

    Overall it was about a 2-3 month process from initial testing until a selection was made. After the aptitude test was the dreaded Cobra. If you've done any type of gauges before or can learn quickly fret not, it was actually kind of simple. My problem with the hiring process came at the interview phase...I went thru this whole process only to get an interview that seemed more like a formality than an actual opportunity. I had people yawning and what not showing complete lack of interest before I could even answer 1 question. I'm sure this is a good company for the chosen ones. Word to the wise though, don't even waste your time if you don't know someone who already works here or wasn't apart of their co-op program because in the end you won't even get as much as an email saying they chose someone else.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical (Lubbock, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was very relaxed and conversational. I had two interviewers. I think they try to match the interviewers with the interests of the interviewees. They were very nice. There were a couple of behavioral questions but mainly they just wanted to get to know you and why you would be a good candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron Phillips Chemical.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a team of people. One of the job requirements, according to the recruiter, was optional. During the interview it was clear that this was not the case. Chevron was in possession my resume well before the interview and clearly did not see this experience. I questioned why I was invited for an interview. It was a waste of my time...
