High effort expected with little support or professional development
Gorgon Project Site Instrument Engineer (Former Employee) –  Barrow Island WA14 December 2018
A typical day was full-on with continuous pressure to meet project milestones.
The project grieved from a lack of control in the pre-construction discipline/inter-discipline checks, vendor document reviews, and vendor/yard QA/QC inspections. Some basic installation designs and interfaces were flawed, requiring extensive site rework.
Management was siloed and resisted the team's recommendations for the practical work-a-rounds. Both staff and contract personnel were insecure in their positions.
The workplace culture was based on sound HSE policies, but somewhat lacking in practice. While teamwork was fostered, there individual ownership was lacking.
The most difficult part of the job was in meeting unachievable timelines, due to the large quantity of incomplete/faulty fab-yard work and the avoidable rework required for compliance with Company and statutory standards.
Landing at Perth airport was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
The challenge and satisfaction of rectification.
Cons
Long hours and poor recognition of effort

Technical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Perth WA27 October 2018
Opinions of only 'loyal' AMERICAN employees matter.
Chevron Australia management is dominated by american managers and strongly controlled by those bureaucratic people.
Cannot handle a "no" or "this is not right" answers.
Australians and their experience is not valued.
US employees are given high allowances and seconded to Australian operations, but Australian employees are made redundant.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Low job satisfaction, lot of politics

Exciting Project to have the opportunity be involved in.
Permit Control Officer - Chevron Wheatstone LNG (Current Employee) –  Onslow WA4 September 2018
Having been with Chevron for the construction and commissioning phases the conditions and remuneration have been good. You are expected to pick up things fast and met their standards but you are helped by capable people with a strong work ethic.

Only successful due to their large size
Information Management Analyst (Former Employee) –  Perth WA26 June 2018
Rigid bureaucratic systems that focus on procedure and documentation but not within the framework of a quality management system that allows improvements. A culture of expecting engineers to justify earlier technical decisions by others, however poor, rather than apply their own expertise. Poor knowledge management and communication between operational groups.

Certainly not a fun place to work however some good people employed there
QA/QC coordinator / Client Representative (Former Employee) –  Barrow Island WA18 May 2018
A typical day at work was frustrating with the company trying to impose a "One size fits all" culture here in Australia regarding procedures and management process

Difficult to learn anything really as the culture was not really geared to individual learning, more a culture of "Do as I say & not as I do"

The hardest part of the job was to achieve anything as there was no sense of logic behind corporate decisions

The most enjoyable part of the job for me was leaving!
Pros
Good money
Cons
Horrible rosters

Safety
Warehouse Trainee (Former Employee) –  Onslow WA23 April 2018
Working for Chevron was good.
Working close to home which I enjoyed.
Commuting to work on the bus every morning.


The safety culture was huge.
Chevron safety and expectations was a big part of the job.
Each and every employer, no matter what position you were.
It was compulsory to do safety checks.

OTS Development Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Perth WA18 April 2018
Chevron is a great place to work.

You are able to raise your family consistently over a 30 year period if you are working at Chevron.

Although international markets drive commodities, Chevron has remained stable for over 100 years. They are a global oil company and I was able to take advantage of involving myself from a global prospective.
Pros
Safety conscious
Cons
International market drives commodities
