Process Engineer Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Chevron (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

Interview

One hour with two interviewers. Very casual and conversational. This was the initial on-campus screening. The next step is the on-site interview with several team members. I was informed that the process would take up to two months. All behavioral based questions. They use the STAR method, so be prepared with examples. If you are comfortable in interviews, this part should be pretty easy.

Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chevron (Berkeley, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    On campus interview for new college hires. The people were polite and expectations well communicated. It was me and two representatives, and the atmosphere was relaxed.

    The interview format focused on the STAR format. Situation Task Action Result. This is a common form of interviewing, and works pretty well when you have the experience they are looking for. The form focuses on specific examples of how you behaved in the past, not hypothetical situations on how you would behave.

    This form was communicated ahead of time, but it was implied to cover a wide range of topics, from technical achievements to personal skills and leadership. The interview was completely skewed towards leadership. I did not get any questions on how to problem solve technical issues, but spent an hour talking about how to navigate people issues, both in softer interpersonal and leadership in tough times. This probably reflects the work required of an entry level process engineer at Chevron.

    I suggest tailoring your narrative around hierarchical leadership experiences. I don't have a lot of experience where I was directly in charge and tried to instead focus on collaborative experiences. I don't know if they didn't like that strategy or just didn't like me but the result was that it didn't work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Chevron (San Francisco, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online, and received a call the next week. After the phone screen, I went onsite for a panel interview. Interview was primarily behavioral, with focus on communication, teamwork, and leadership. At the end, I was given ample time to ask questions, in fact the interviewers kept encouraging me to ask more and more questions....overall it was a very positive experience. My chemistry with the interviewers was a large reason why I accepted the offer.
