Chevron Assessment Centre

If you have done well enough in the previous stages of the Chevron recruitment process you will be invited to attend the Chevron assessment centre. There are a number of different assessment centres depending on the particular position you have applied for. However, each of them follows the same basic outline that includes verification of the aptitude test, a group exercise and an interview.

Verification of Chevron Aptitude Tests

In first stage of the Chevron assessment day you are asked to retake the aptitude test you previously took. This is done in order to verify the scores you have previously received. You may want to brush up on your skills before completing the verification stage to ensure you do as well or better than the first time.

Chevron Group Exercise

Along with the other candidates, you are given a brief pertinent to your job application. The brief normally contains lots of facts and figures and you have to use this information in order to come up with a solution to a problem that is explained in the brief. In order to complete this activity in the best possible way you need to show Chevron that you possess all the key values listed above. Find out how we can help you with your group activity with our online practice.

Chevron Interview

The Chevron interview at the assessment centre is a 3-1 interview where you face three assessors for an interview that can be up to an hour and a half long. This interview is split, with questions relating to your qualifications and skills as well as others which relate to your qualifications. As this is a long, detailed interview, it is perfectly acceptable to bring some notes in with you. Moreover, you are allowed and even encouraged to take your time to answer in a succinct way as this enables you to respond to the question in the best possible way. The best way to prepare for the Chevron interview is to take a real practice interview with a trained interviewer which you can do with our Skype-based mock interviews.

There are many different questions that you can face but some of the most popular Chevron interview questions are listed below:

  • Tell me about a time when you worked on an engineering team.
  • Tell me about a time when you had to resolve a conflict.
  • What is your greatest weakness?
  • Tell me about a time when you had to multitask.
  • Have you ever led a team? Tell me about what you did and how you did it.
  • Give me an example of a safety concern that you have had to deal with. What did you do?
  • Please walk me through your CV.

In order to answer the questions in the correct manner you need to incorporate the key values of the company in your answers.

After you have completed the above stages of the Chevron recruitment process successfully you have to complete a medical. Come through this successfully and you will be offered a place.
