Default ExxonMobil is still hiring

I received this email at work today, looks as if they are still testing. There should be alot of people retiring in the next couple of years so the testing continues.
When I hired in they tested around 2-3000 people with about 150 getting interviews and the actual hire class was around 40. I know its tough odds and I was very fortunate to get hired with my limited education but the benefits are very good along with working 4 on and 4 off and alot of OT depending on the unit.

If you are a deadbeat now then please do not apply, beleive it or not I was once a hard working person until I got spoiled.

Seriously though if you decide to apply I would be happy to answer what questions I can and good luck.

I really hope that someone does benefit, for my particular situation this job really was a blessing about 11 yrs ago.

BTW, I tested three times during the late 80's and early 90's before I got hired, but then again I am not sure if I passed the test with a high score or not. If you are off that day what do you have to loose?

bttt, if you are interested then don't wait as they are hiring at the moment but I don't think this will last but a year or two or atleast until the stock goes back up to the 90's.

Yes they can, but I will be honest it seems that most of the people that are hired are in their mid 20's to mid 30's. I got hired in when I was 30 and I know of three people in my unit that were hired in the last 10 yrs that were less than 20.

ExxonMobil I beleive is one of the few that are still hiring without a process technology degree but not sure how long that will last.

If you have some industrial background it will be a plus, atleast take the test and get in the network. I tested twice myself before I ever got an interview.

I went and took the test on Friday the 24th and they told me I passed. I cant believe how many people came in there to take the test and left because they couldnt stay there the whole time the test required. In this day of time because of our economy to be hired by Exxon would be worth the wait. Lethal Injection do you know how many they are going to hire out of the 1100 that took the test and passed? I am currently an operator for Davis Petroleum Corp. but my company is an Exploration company so in Five years they may or may not be here so when im in my mid 30's I dont want to have to be looking for another Job and Exxon has many opportunitys to move up.

Sorry but I have no idea how many they plan to hire or when, it seems like there has been a new hire group every 6 months or so for the past 3 years with about 40 people to a group. Good luck

I also took the test and passed ! I'm not sure I'll take the job(if chosen), not sure there's enough money in circulation for me to move back to the Houston area but I will listen. Nobody at the 1pm test left because of time constraints but a few didn't come back after break

Thumbs up

When they asked if anybody couldnt stay for the entire test people got up and left, then after the first break im guessing because of the time to take each part of the test there were more people that left so each table had 1-2 seats empty. Yeah I heard Exxon doesnt pay as much when you start but in the long run I think its a better opportunity

I may be telling too personal of information but I hired in 11 yrs ago in August of that year, it was my lowest year with pay in the mid 80's and there has not been a year less than 100k since, it just depends on your willingness to work overtime. Their pay scale is a little different as well, you will be paid 8hrs at 1.0 x pay and 4 hrs at 1.5 x pay for a 12 hr shift in process. An off day is 1.7 x pay for hours worked and every 7th day will get you 2.2 x pay for hours worked.

For most people in my unit the average pay for the year is in the 100k - 140k range. If you do not beleive this job is for you then please do not apply, we have had some drag up before they completed their initial training and this leaves someone that tested, qualified and has left their family short of the income.

I am not positive but I beleive the starting pay is in the 20$ - 23$ an hour range and topping out in the 30$ an hour range with some good benefits.

Your past job performance will be a help, they have hired everything from Airline stewardess to school teachers so any industrial experience would be a plus.

If you may be interested then don't waste time and apply for what could be a life changing job.

This may not be for everyone but I hired in after working as an electician's apprentice for a few years and then on to a state certified welder before I tested for Exxon, it was the best move I have made and after the first year the loss in pay was recovered.

I guess this test is for the Baytown refineries? I hired on with Exxon about a year ago and love it. I work offshore though but can tell you that it is a great company to work for and there are plenty of opportunities once you get your foot in the door. Like Lethal Injection said, there are ALOT of guys that are at or nearing retirement age that are probably going to be getting out pretty soon because. I believe I had 2 interviews before I was actually hired on, and the test just has basic math and reading questions.

Jeez, the candidate profile asks for misdemeanors? Doh!

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN CONVICTED OF A FELONY OR MISDEMEANOR? DISCLOSE ALL CONVICTIONS, DEFERRED ADJUDICATIONS, NO CONTEST PLEAS, EXPUNGEMENTS, ETC.

Hmm, so the question is a YES/NO. If you answer NO to the first question, do you still have to enter expungement which did NOT result in "conviction"?

Then again, how any anyone not answer YES unless they have never gotten a ticket for speeding.

I would suspect that with the amount of people who should be retiring this year due to interest rates they should still be hiring throught the spring.

If you have any type of alcohol related offense you most likely will not be allowed to fill any type of supervisor position for at least 10 yrs, you can thank the drunk that wrecked the ship at Valdez for that one.

I interviewed for a lab position last week at the Beaumont Refinery.

Dress nice....no blue jeans.

Bring your resume and college transcript ( if applicable)

My interview lasted approximately 2 hours, one interview was for work and education experience/background and one was questions about how you would/have handled specific situations.

Safety is #1 priority...remember this point.

Teamwork is very important also.

good luck
