I am not a woman but am an operator. However, both my wife and mother are operators. My wife has worked for ExxonMobil for 4 years and loves it. She started at about $24/hr and now makes $31/hr. If you have ANY 4 year degree, the PTEC degree is not necessary at most places. Neither my wife nor I have the PTEC degree and we didn't have any experiece when we started. She got the job with Exxon on her first try, we both tested but I didn't get an interview and she got the job. We both work 4 on 4 off.

I took the test yesterday in Beaumont. I was on the waitlist, but I got in. There were quite a few women there of all ages and races....I was pleasantly surprised. I am currently a teacher and Ihave met a few teachers who are working at Exxon and they love it. I pray I pass my test, so I can be another female on the grind!

Texflip, could you please give me alittle bit more info. I have a BS, however it is in Psychology. I would like to become a Process Operator and would love to not go back to school for additional time to get a AAS in Process Tech. Could you tell me where it is not necessary to have a PTEC degree I have been looking and looking online! Thank you

I live in Illinois where I attended a 6 month ptec program. Applied to about 10 places and didn't hear much back. Tested at Mobil refinery in July, interviewed in october , and offered the job 2 weeks later. I start in Feb at 28$. I hope I like it since I'm leaving a job that I love(boss is retiring soon) and I'm really worried about being forced to work a bunch of overtime since so many are retiring and I have a family

Hi i currently live in louisiana gonzales to be exact and i got my process tech degree done by the age of 20. while in school i tested for exxonmobil in march 2010 they did interviews immediately and i didnt get a call back for 2 whole years!!! but did end up getting the job. that was in montana. now i live in Louisiana where there are much more plants and i moved down here and it took me about 4 months to get a job at a plant. Plants/Refineries do move very slow in all their processes interviews, tests, etc. but dont lose hope im 22 now and have been at my job for a year and a half and make 28 an hour! just keep applying!!! it will happen Good Luck!!!

Hello,

I'm 25 and I'm very interested in going to school as a process operator. I work in a industrial motor repair shops and constantly delivering to the plants in SE Houston. However I'm aware of the hours and I'm a single mother of a 5 year old. Do you know of anyone who is a single parent working this position or similar hours... How do they take care of their children working 12hr shifts?

Just have to make it work..I went on YouTube and saw great videos but the most inspiration I received was observing all the women I knew that had jobs as nurses or police officers and how they made it work...have those affairs in order and roll with the punches...there is day care and transportation services inetro areas it will work out...I am going to go for it and not live with worry of course I won't have just anyone with my kids however I will have back up plans!!

Also they have a few plants that do work 8 or 10 hour shifts but it gives you less options..
