Do you work at Chevron? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

This job keeps showing up on a monthly basis. Are they growing that fast or do people keep quitting? Anyone who works there care to comment?

Was it totally due to the credit report or insufficient information

Thanks for your reply.

Can you or someone suggest a few decent (safe, reasonably priced) apartments between I-10 and Westheimer. I was told that there is Metro bus that runs to and from the Downtown. Is it convenient/better than driving?

karen s in Houston, Texas said: Houston is a great town to live in ...depending on where you live like any large city. There is a great deal of crime here. If I were thinking about settling down with a family - I would look at Austin way before Houston. However, housing is much more affordable here - but for families - Austin is full of parks and great places to swim and driving down Mopac - no signage. It's fun and UT is there.

Houston has all the fluff - fine museums the best in the way of healthcare - and we have the best dining by far in all catagories. I have heard that from people who have lived in San Francisco and more. The west end near dairy ashford between westhiemer and 1-10 is nice...there are great neighborhoods such as the woodlands and sugarland if you don't mind the drive in. Good luck!

Depends on your position. The IT dept. is actually the ITC or IT Company under the Chevron corporate umbrella. The positions range from VERY technical to not technical at all. Which are you?

L03 in Midland, Texas said: Does anyone know how long it take to go through the Pr-employment Process with Cheveron I was offered a job the first of October and it is now going into the third week of October?

Mine was just under 2 weeks. It can take upwards of 3 weeks. Usually they start pressuring the background check company if it gets into the 3 week area.

There really aren't any specific questions that are asked by the company. I interviewed for two positions in IT and both interviews were totally different. The first was essentially a quiz. They tested my knowledge of technology. In the second interview they just talked about my work history, my goals and what sparked my interest in Chevron. All very general and "normal" interview questions.

I have been selected to an on-site interview in San-roman by Chevron, for the campus recruting for the IT department the five years program in IT. i will fly there next week, please does anyone know the process interview for the IT department?,

Actually they send me the agenda and there are two interviews and perhaps a third one at the end of the day. Also I am not a technical person that much, I have a strong business background( with an MBA) and graduating with a master in management information system.....

Please I need help

Are you going for a certain position? Is this the Horizons program. Keep in mind that IT is actually a huge global company within Chevron. The interview will depend on the job. Also, the because IT is so huge here, not every position is technical. You could end up with an HR position in IT that requires virtually no tech skills. Dish the details and I'll do what I can to help.

I'm lost because I don't know what they want from you. It could be questions about applications, networking, desktop support, programming, project management, business analysis. You see where I'm going? I need a bit more to go on.

I interviewed for two positions. One was for an active directory support position. They grilled me on AD tech questions. The second position didn't have ANY technical questions. It was more based on my personality. They wanted to know how I interact with team members, etc.

god bless you... As I said I have an MBA from France, came in the US to do a master in management information system. I met chevron two weeks ago at the national conference for black enginneer. I met there an old guy who works for chevron, nice position, told him my desire to work for chevron and got me an interview there. not that bad it was three questions, mostly behavirouls questions such leadership examples and results and outcomes, how do you handle stress.....
Last week they send me the invitation for the on-site, but why do they requires three interviews there, I am like come on that a lot? How do you think i have to get prepared since this position it is only for new graduates and future graduates.. it is a five years program the horizon one.....

what do you think I might face, how can I prepared myself for differents scenario since I don t have that much experience...

Thanks a lot

Well sometimes it takes them a while...depending on your choices of location n etc and also the team you chose to work with.....give them about 2 wks then give 'em a buzz......"phone call follow-up".

Don't give up. Let them deny you if thats what will happen. I was told that I was doomed due to credit issues by some "knowledgeable" on this site but got in without a problem. You never know. The arrest may put you over the top but don't give up.

What part of the interview process is my husband in? My husband is going through a temp agency and had a phone interview with Chevron on May 23-they liked him a lot. Then went in for an on campus interview with an SBU on May 28 that took 40 minutes. They still like him and said they need someone right away. Then on June 2(monday) the employment agency emailed him and said that the Chevron SBU was trying to negotiate his salary (with who I dont know cause we didnt hear anything), but then on Tues the temp agency emailed him back and said that Chevron SBU are still very interested in having him apart of their team, but thought he was a little vauge about his skills and would like more specifics of other projects he did for his previous employer. He emails the requested info over to them and its now Friday June 6 and have not herd from them yet. I read through some of these other posts and it looks like a couple of weeks to a couple of months before you get an answer back (if at all). My question is what part of the interview process is he in?

Hi there guys.

I have been reading your posts with great interest.

I am about to attend an aptitude test at Pembroke Chevron refinery in Wales, UK as I recently applied for a position as a process operator. I have been informed that the recruitment process consists of three stages -

1. Aptitude tests.
2. A four hour computer simulation called a COBRA test.
3. An interview.

If anyone has any experience on any of these stages then please could you throw some light on the subject. Any information would be greatly appreciated as I really want this job. Chevron own the largest out of 4 refineries here in Wales and they seem the most forward thinking company to work for.

Any help please guys. Thanks so much or as I say in Wales, Diolch (Thanks).

Its my experience that they do get back to you with a negivtive answer. My husband has applied for a couple of jobs off their website and we got a return email like 2 or 3 months later saying that we were denied the job.

It was when he applied through a temp agency that is hiring for one of Chevron's out-sourcing companies that he is finally being considered for a position. He has had a phone interview and an on-campus interview in a span of 2 weeks.

I dont mind the wait, I just wish I knew what stage of the hiring process he is in.

I do not know. My husband is going through a temp agency and took their generic Excel Tests and such. I am learning that each job has its own way of interviewing and measuring their candidates, but all of them require a long process. My advice is to dig your heals in. Do research on the internet of the job you are applying for. Do the best that you can on the test and wait. Its the waiting that will be the hardest, but it is a long long process-several months, so have a seat you will be here a while.

Hi there Alan

I tried for the Process Operator job at Chevron Pembroke too - in June 2008. My cousin who works there as an Electrical Engineer - refered me. Im 33 and Master Technician with Jaguar and Landrover - one of only 2 in Wales, and also the whole world !
I failed to get in. I was wondering if you could help me out - as to which way or what you put in your CV. All jobs i have gone for before I have always got offers with sending in my CV, but this is in the Motor Repair Industry. How do i do it different to get into the Fuel industry ? I was really hoping i would get in to Chevron with my experience, and looking forward to learning something new - plus getting paid properly !

Any tips or info you could give ?

Kind regards

Petty

Hello,

There was a posting from Chevron for "Rotational Engineer" sometime back. They have removed that now. Did anybody get response for that position when you applied?

Does anyone know what the hiring process is?

nr in Abbeville, Louisiana said: It's good to be real about the situation both ways. You are right, not every company checks credit but Chevron does. However I did speak to one of the HR folks being that I am a candidate for a position and I really think the credit check is mainly for verification purposes and to see whats going on to be sure this person is not a potential threat. I personally do not agree with it because good people come across problems beyond their own power and the good sometimes suffer for the bad. We all need to put it all in Gods hand because I see many people with good credit get good jobs and read about much malfeasance and many other people with high positions doing the wrong thing. I think people with bad credit could use a break these days but thats not always the case. We can only concentrate on the things we can change and again let God take care of the rest.

I strongly agree. Is it necessary to "punish" someone that has been a victim of a horrible housing market crash and ended up with bad credit? My wife and I have been through some really unfortunate times this last year. Wife lost 2 management jobs because of other employee theft. Hence we ended up not having the money to pay bills, and even lost our house to foreclosure in California because of the market crash and unscrupulous lending practices that we fell victim to. If Chevron or any other big corporation decides to refuse someone that could potentially be an excellent, hard working dependable employee based on the fact that they had to use their money just to survive and not pay bills- then so be it! I wouldn't want to work for a shallow company like that anyway because credit scores do NOT reflect what kind of worker you could be. I always paid my bills on time and had a 700+ score before my wife got fired based on employee theft. I passed Chevrons first testing phase for operator and I have a felony from 13 yrs ago and terrible credit.

The first testing lasted 4.5 hours and included arithmetic, mechanical, learning aptitude, and chemical tests. Nothing you can really prepare for, just common knowledge. Out of 138 people in the room, there were only 58 of us who passed; applying for 8 positions as operator/grunt. Next, I was chosen for the COBRA test tomorrow and pretty excited. My concern is that I have a felony conviction from 13 yrs. ago and horrible credit score. I would be quite upset if they make me go this far knowing about my conviction and then deny me a position after passing all the testing. I knew not to lie about it on the application, because a big company like Chevron would find out anyway. But some people deserve a 2nd chance for a good job, esp. if its been over a decade with no convictions and is unrelated to the position. If a company wants to know about a persons reliability, credit scores tell them nothing..Only previous positions held and experience would tell them this. Deny a good worker a chance at a good job because of mistakes made in the past? Am I just wasting my time even trying to get in?

There are long shots and there are wastes of time. This is long shot material. Go for it. It's not like you'll get ANOTHER felony if this doesn't work out - right? I have a brother with multiple felonies in his past but this guy NEVER has trouble finding jobs...GOOD jobs. Amazing. Now, if you killed someone that is another issue.
