Pros: really there were no pros we got our lunch taken out of our check with no discount

Project Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TX – July 22, 2014
I truly enjoyed work for Chevron. I learned a lot about the oil industry, safety and working relationships. The hardest part of the job has been moving on to other projects and leaving co-workers behind. The most enjoyable has been starting new projects and watching them develop and grow.
Respectful, engaging workplace with high emphasis on safety.
Tank Engineer (Current Employee), El Segundo, CA – July 16, 2014
Working with multi-disciplinary groups is a rewarding and humbling experience. Diversity and mutual respect is important to getting things done right. Technical, Operations and Maintenance work groups working hand-in-hand to set each other up for success.
CASHIER (Former Employee), Woodland, WA – July 12, 2014
I was scheduled to work swing shift, it was quiet most of the nights. Every once in a while you had to deal with unpleasant people but for the most part it was just people traveling that stopped for gas. There were few things that needed to be done at night when it was slower and the person working had the time. The hardest part of the job was trying – more... to stay awake for the shift. – less
Productive, yet easy-going job with a friendly atmosphere
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Columbus, GA – July 11, 2014
Pros: down time, weekly pay, time to get to know your coworkers and managers
Cons: no breaks, low pay
I loved my experience working with Chevron. My managers were always willing to help with any situation, and most of my coworkers were great to work with. I learned a lot about how people are and how a business is run. I was also able to sharpen up my communication and customer service skills.
Manager (Former Employee), Sacramento, CA – July 11, 2014
Pros: friendly owner/boss
Cons: long hours
On a typical day i would manage the shop floor and make sure thing are up and running to satisfaction. I learnt how to manager and run a business efficiently, what to look for in terms of loss prevention and how to do it. My co workers were great, we worked well as a team so the day went easier for us. The hardest part of the job was the long hours – more... i had to put in. The enjoyable part of the job was i was the manager and the harder and quicker i worked the easier my day would be. – less
