What I liked

Very dedicated in keeping a healthy and productive workspace environment

What I wish was different

I wish the internship would have been in-person because all the people are great!

What I liked

The work environment was very supportive and you had personnel from all kinds of different departments working to help each other succeed.

What I wish was different

Never be scared to do something you have minimal to no knowledge about, you will have subject matter experts there to help you learn as you gain experience.

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • San Ramon, CA

What I liked

Great company culture Ownership over your projects Projects felt like they could potentially impact the company

What I wish was different

More competitive pay More effective on boarding process Internship project did not quite match what was presented before I accepted the offer

Advice

Chevron's emphasis is more in IT at this location, so if you are interested in having a good stable job with a friendly culture, this is a great job! If you are looking for more cutting edge and wanting to be a developer, you will get paid better elsewhere.

Nothing. It was a great experience that taught me many important life lessons.

Finance Development Program Intern

May - August 2019 • San Ramon, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed several aspects of Finance Development Program Internship with Chevron this summer. I enjoyed the multiple opportunities to have meetings with company executives. For example, My peers and I had the opportunity to have a lunch and learn with the CFO, Pierre Breber. My internship with filled with multiple projects and monthly procedures. Through all of my projects I was able to add-value to my team and the company as a whole. For example, I was able to develop a Enterprise-Wide solution to help promote better data-privacy. My projects are still being used even after my internship.I liked the opportunity to move to a different place this summer to experience a different culture and environment.

What I wish was different

I do not have many complaints about my internship. I would have enjoyed it being longer to complete more projects and get more involved with employee networks.

Advice

My biggest piece of advice is to always ask questions and be excited about your work. I would recommend to anyone to get out for a summer to experience a new place. It will give anyone a new perspective about life and the professional world after graduation. I would also recommend to network with as many people in the company as possible. This summer I would schedule meeting with several different department managers to discover different opportunities in the company. I was able to learn more about several different career opportunities I would be interested in exploring once in the professional world.

What I liked

I loved how i used my position to network with various supervisors of different companies. I was offered a new job several times.

What I wish was different

I wish the owner would have been a more respectful person and not let his personal issues influence his decison making skills.

Advice

Take care of your character and watch your words. We are contantly being tested and we must lower ourselves or fall short due to our tempers. However, dont take any 💩 either. You do not have to be subjected to nonsense.

What I liked

Great hours that work with school schedule. Awesome coworkers. Safety culture that this company puts emphasis on.

What I wish was different

None.

Need to have thick skin as customers would never blame themselves for anything. Be yourself and also be professional as this does help be viewed by higher corporate supervisors. What you make out of this job, is what you get out of it. Customers are pleasant for the most part.

Accounting Intern

June - August 2019 • Pascagoula, MS

What I liked

I enjoyed the atmosphere the most. The employees there really treat you like you’re part of the family. The company itself really goes out of their way to make sure that you feel valuable as well.

What I wish was different

If there is anything I could say I wish had been different, I just wish it could have been longer!

Advice

Get used to waking up very early to get to work on time. Don’t make the mistake of losing your badge that allows you in and out of the refinery.

Petroleum Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Bakersfield, CA

What I liked

This past summer was an incredible experience, I can't begin to describe how much I learned and grew as a professional. Chevron is a fantastic company to work for that has an outstanding company culture. The benefits and compensation for the summer are substantial. One of the best parts of working within the San Joaquin Valley Bussiness Unit was the people. I built an incredible network of colleagues and friends that I look forward to working with again in the future.

What I wish was different

I have no complaints about my internship experience, there's a reason Chevron is one of the highest-rated intern programs in the nation.

Advice

Start early in preparing to apply for an internship, the process begins early in the year and closes early in the year so you must be prepared. If you get an intern position, make sure to get to know everyone that works with you and around you. Chevron interns are not coffeemakers, you work just as much as a full-time employee and are valued just as much. Every employee there wants to help you succeed, but you have to reach out and let them.

Productions Engineering Intern

April - August 2019 • Midland, TX

What I liked

I was able to experience exactly what I would be doing if I was a productions engineer for Chevron. Nothing but generous people willing to share their industry knowledge with you. I was afforded the opportunity to visit all three fields in the Permian Basin to learn about operations first-hand. While outside of work the intern network was very close, and we got to participate in a number of activities organized through different employee networks such as hiking to the highest point in Texas, the Guadalupe Mountains.

What I wish was different

More information about how to live in Midland and general better communication throughout the school year on deadlines and requirements.

Advice

Go in with a mindset that you are there to learn first and foremost, and that it is okay to ask questions. Instead of sifting through mountains of data, you can learn twice the information in half the time simply by talking to a subject matter expert, or really just about anybody who might know more about the topic than you might.

Infrastructure Systems Analyst

June - September 2019 • San Ramon, CA

What I liked

Great culture and community. Company hosts events to allow interns to meet executives and other employees. Reasonably good compensation and housing stipend. Company attracts awesome people.

What I wish was different

Not all projects were programming based or had to do with low-code platforms, which aren’t for everyone

Advice

There’s tons of opportunities to meet people; take them and learn about tech positions in a non-tech company. Spend time with other interns whenever possible!
