    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Chevron.

    Interview

    I was emailed about a week after I submitted a resume for a phone interview. There were 2 people on the phone interview and they asked very generic questions - e.g. describe yourself, what type of contracting work have you performed. After about 2-3 weeks I was called in for an in person interview where they asked basically the same questions again, but this time I was interviewed by a 4 member panel. People were very nice and one of them gave me a card and said to call anytime with questions. Also had to pass a drug test and background check.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with a recruiter. The interview was about 45 minutes and was mostly behavior type questions. A few accounting questions were asked. After that, I was flown to company offices and had a panel interiew (3 people at once). Most of the time, they focused on behaviors and situationals. Asked about resume and experiences. I then had lunch with 3 auditors were we talked about my career goals, etc. I got a great sense of the vibe and culture here. Everyone was friendly and I got a chance to talk about what it's like to work here and what's in store for me.
