    I worked at Chevron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    meet interesting people, get paid every 2 weeks, set schedule, get paid overtime on many holidays

    Cons

    set schedule , worked "relief shift" 4 day shifts followed by 2 graveyard shifts. called in sick once w/bronchitis, manager ignored so I had to go in.
    had seizure triggered by schedule, requested an adjustment and manager asked me to quit for it. negativity from some coworkers during shift, constantly had to tell homeless to leave for shoplifting , begging for money, and digging through trash, caught people w/drugs, cleaned up bathrooms after people shot up or smoked meth, got cussed out, harassed by people
    large homeless population spends time at chevron to shoplift, bathe and do drugs in bathroom, previous employee constantly neglected duties as a manager's favorite, was forced to perform their slack and correct the mistakes, my manager had only been manager for about a year, she disliked an employee and tried to get her to quit, too unexperienced, petty, immature to make good choices

    Advice to Management

    recognize when you are wrong ethically and morally, stop favoritism toward some and animosity toward others, take responsibility for your mistakes, stop discriminating against employees based on disability or age, put more consideration into decision making, create a more positive work environment, leave emotional mood swings aside during work

    I have been working at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Work Life Balance (9/80's, never work more than 40 hours a week)
    401k match (if you put 2 percent they put 8)
    The Pension
    Very laid back culture, very helpful culture

    Cons

    Corporate red tape
    It is hard for people to move out of the department, even though they lie and promise people 3-5 years. Unless you are kissing mgmt's butt it is more like 5-7 years for you to move onto other finance departments

    I have been working at Chevron full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good FIFO roster, camp life ok, great group of experienced people in my team. Should be the greatest job in the world but for its poor leadership and management

    Cons

    Horrible culture on site, due to severe lack of experience in management/leadership positions. Run by politics and people pushing there own agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Enable the people you have employed, restructure management

    I worked at Chevron full-time

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and extremely invested in sustaining health, environment and safety performance.

    Cons

    -PMP process is ineffective
    -Managers who create hostile work environment are "coached" as a opposed to being terminated even after repeated reports. Similar to Uber, Chevron needs to be willing to remove the problem manager/leader as opposed to protecting them while losing high performing female/minority employees.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your organizational culture bc it is failing. Leaders are mistreating employees and getting away with it. HR is not representing the employees but rather the abusive managers.
    Leadership performance should be measured/evaulated by both successes and lessons learned. EQ training should be mandatory. If more than 40% of a manager's team leaves/resigns within less than a year that should be a direct reflection of the managing supervisor. Turnover is extremely costly especially if you allow hostile a work environment to continue and avoid the root cause.
