What insiders say about…
Varies, depends on the rotation and the outputs that are required
Caltex really lives and breathes its values. These values underpin everything we do. In my experience I have found teamwork is definitely present (across & within departments) but I would say this has varied slightly depending on what department I have sat in. Although there is a hierarchy within the organization, the exposure I have had in different teams, and meeting various people across the business has in a sense flattened this.
Interview process involved a number of behavioral questions with specific reference to my past job experience. I initially had to complete an online assessment which was actually in the form of a theme park game which was actually quite fun! Also attended an assessment center where I participated in group discussions, writing emails and interview questions.
Questions around challenges I had faced, what my hobbies were, how I would approach certain situations, previous job experience, conflict resolution.
Be true to yourself. Believing in your own abilities brings confidence naturally. Be genuine. Be prepared for behavioral questions. Think of times in your life that you can use as examples to apply to specific behavioral questions.
Caltex believes in work life balance. If you are a morning person (which I am) you can come into the office early and leave early i.e. 8:30-4:30. But rather than sticking to specific time frames, you are measured by your output - some days you might have to work longer to achieve what you need to, other days you might not.
Excellent pay and benefit system
Discounted fuel, internal and external conferences
Regular feedback and progress check-in's with managers who are more than willing to work together with you
I've attended various training programs depending on the manager I have had at the time. The training programs I have got the most value out of are the ones that challenge traditional thinking and problem solving.
I would assume and would like to think that by doing a good job and performing well and establishing relationships with various people might at some point lead to job opportunities or potentially promotions.
From my perspective Caltex is fantastic at promoting women. A new initiative started last year called "women in the fuel industry" this was a great forum to establish relationships with other women in the industry as well as men.
We have an indigenous program that attracts talent nationally. Some of Caltex's graduates have come through this program.Join us to bookmark!
