Why do you want to work for Chevron? Is there a time you went above and beyond for a customer?

the first question and it was an obvious easy question. The chevron program that I was being interview for was cancelled due to falling oil prices. Less


Followed the STAR method and asked questions related to leadership, mechanical ability and quantitative ability. For example, Please describe an instance where you successfully led a group of people on a project/job task. Could you describe a situation where you had to solve a mechanical problem related to your work? Could you describe a situation where you had to calculate or use your quantitative reasoning to solve a problem out in the field? They asked what made me apply to Chevron? How did I get interested in the industry? What are the main reasons I want to be a Chevron employee? They also asked if I had any questions about them. I asked the recruiter about their job experience and assignments as well as what brought them to Chevron. I always like turning the questions around and seeing how well they present themselves. This provided a good break from the stressful interview process.

I described situations in my work how I led a group or solved issues related to the job such as fixing a part in the manufacturing process where I worked previously. I explained my passion for oil and gas and how my family had worked in oil and gas for generations. I also talked about the reviews and advice I received from family who had also worked for Chevron or were still working for Chevron. Each question had to be answered using the STAR method. I was definitely glad I knew what the STAR method of interviewing was or else it would have been quite an embarrassing situation. Less
