Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – El Cajon, CA – February 12, 2017
the money was nice, and the store was constantly busy. It was almost hard to keep up with everything without any help. I managed to monitor the store outside as well as in for any messes. Logged and cleaned any gas pump spills. Helped people figure out how their pumps work, kept all products stocked. I also promoted the gift cards as required, answered phone calls and handled any complaints. I also kept the register at a fixed amount. This job would have been ideal, however my manager didn't fully train me or explain things fully. When asked certain questions she floundered and in the end I had to learn from her boss just to do my job. I also had problems with unstable customers harassing me. My manager just brushed it off. I had no choice in the end but to quit.
excellent hours, benefits, 5/7 days a week
very poor management, safety problems concerning harrassment
My goal is to ensure training and development can be applied on the job to increase performance and improve the business.
Learning & Development Facilitator (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 13, 2017
I am energized by learners who are able to articulate to me that they can actually apply the knowledge they've just gained. I motivate others to learn and improve their performance by my energy and ability to engage them, resulting in higher retention and ultimately greater performance. While monetary compensation is necessary to survive, my #1 motivator to work is in seeing others develop their competencies.
I've learned that establishing relationships paramount to success in the workplace.
Retail data quality analyst (Former Employee) – San Ramon, CA – October 16, 2016
typical day depended's on what what happen out in the field, could be system network issues that were causing caller not able to complete they paperwork we would need to determine if it was a system issue,price book issue,audit issue and then transfer to appropriate team to assist caller in a timely manner. Learned to get as must information as possible to help route caller to correct department. Working with other team members knowledge can help resolve issue more effectively
Hardest part of the job is not being able to resolve the issue
The most enjoyable part .. is resolving the costumer needs .
great benefits, nice team to work with
depends on management what they get out of there employees
Productive and professional workplace that put great importance on the employees
Public Affairs Intern (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 7, 2017
In a typical day, people were free to come in and leave at any time they wanted as long as they completed their 8 or 9-hour workday. This company has incredible benefits and treats their employees with respect and care. The workplace culture was one of the most positive ones that I have experienced; as an intern, my co-workers kept me in the loop and enjoyed getting to know me.
Great corporate culture, great work life/balance, and great benefits However, it suffers from bureaucratic hurdles like many other large organizations. Growth and movement in the organization is far too dependent on one's manager and too many politics play into career advancement
Chevron is one of the BEST companies I have had the pleasure to work for. Very close staff. Everyone pulls for each other. The benefits are great. My hours are perfect. Unfortunately this BU is closing down and going to Questa Mine site. There the project will go into reclamation. I have learned so many skills with Chevron and they always encourage me to learn more. My supervisor is great and my coworker are assume.
On line education, Paid education. Bonuses
May not always like what is handed out but someone has to do it
Tech (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – March 8, 2017
Incredibly competitive workplace, in the sense that you're seen to be competing with your co-workers. Recent layoffs have soured morale. Nearly all perks have been taken away. Raises have been stagnant for two years. Training has all but stopped.
Very mature safety culture, some of the people are nice.
Chevron is a great company to work for if you are willing to relocate.
Field Specialist (Former Employee) – McAlester, OK – January 28, 2017
Typical day is busy, opportunity to learn multiple skills. Job requires constant Computer Based Training. Can be difficult to balance daily duties and training requirements. Overall a great company to work for, but oil and gas markets make long term employment unpredictable.
Excellent pay and benefits
Permitting, reporting and regulations are challenging
Environmental Specialist (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – January 13, 2017
Highly demanding career with constant worry about losing your job due to low price of oil. Huge expectations to do more than two person's job. Great pay and benefits though. The culture is that you sell your soul to the company.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – January 29, 2017
Management sucked! This company sucks! They don't care for there employees all they wants is money!!! They will fire you asap... the only good thing about working here was all the experience handling money and dealing with the worst kind of people
Document Management Specialist (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – November 23, 2016
When I worked as a contractor for chevron I was surprised about the instability of the work environment. During my time there I slowly saw benefits I was promised be taken away with the instability of the field of work. Over time the things I had appreciated about the job disappeared and I was left with the realization that this is no longer a company I would like to work for.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Lake Elsinore, CA – March 19, 2017
Poor compensation, no benefits, rude managers and owner, customers are often impatient and condescending, coworkers are lazy and the majority of work falls on a select few while management does nothing to remedy the situation
Car Washer/Detailer (Former Employee) – Cupertino, CA – December 10, 2016
Very un organized, before starting , I was told that the pay rate was $11/hr. When I came to find out that they had "forgot to mention" that we start at $10.30/hr and get a $0.30 raise in 3 months, which to me was ridiculous
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Fontana, CA – January 15, 2017
I recommend anyone to Working for corporate Chevron stations INC gas stations, even as a part time employee the benefits are still great. For the most part most managers are flexible with college students. Environment is fast paced never a dull job.
Shift Manager/Cashier (Former Employee) – Hampton, GA – November 30, 2016
We were a small team of people working together. There was never a lack of communication or any problems. the cash registers worked well, i had good hours and decent pay. A lot of times I would be able to get off early because of hard work and was treated as good as i was at my job.
