What do you like about working at Chevron?

"It's a dangerous job, where blame is important. The schedules are unrealistic and you are on call 24/7 and not paid for it. If you make a mistake you will be investigated and blamed and Chevron will be exonerated. Engineers rule at CPL. Operations people are the lowest form of life in Chevron culture. Stay away from operations and you may be ok. Oh, by the way it is easy to get fired - watch out!"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The future is for young engineers. If you're not an engineer, go someplace else and don't take your time, run! The probationary period is 1 full year. My father died when I was less than 6 months with Chevron, I went out of town to his funeral anyway, after told I could NOT go. I got in trouble and had to beg for my job."

What don't you like about working at Chevron?

"Dangerous, high pressure, no future, everything is monitored, your work truck records everything and talks to you when it thinks you do wrong. Everything is documented, if you overlook something - it's your ass! But you will never do anything right. The management must keep control of you at all cost. If you talk back to the boss you're fired! And don't expect to get weekends off."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would add more people. Provide training so people can be safe. I would end managements corruption and either make the union ethical or dump them all together. I would end the company culture that non engineer types and non management people are the scum of the earth."
