Arsenic in North Hollywood, California said: I am going to start taking refinery entrance exams soon. My math skills are really low because I had terrible teachers in both high school and in middle school. Can you guys recommend me some excellent books or websites to study that relate to the type of questions that refiners ask in their exams, and that will also teach me how to do math and solve problems.

One of my goals this year is to pass the Exxon mobile test.

I would really appreciate it if you guys can help me.

I sat with them this morning and they listened to what I had to say. At a minimum you can get your foot in to their door with your experience. I have 8 years as a process tech but, I have no actuall plastics operations experience. You will have to sell it!!!! In my opinion if you understand the basic principles of plant sciences you can adapt to the exact process in time. Good luck.

I would call them and ask for a lady named Anaama. She is handling the account. She might ask you to come in for a informal interview and at that time you will fill out ashort application.

@RyanA. You took the Valero test in Dec? Did they say how many people they were hiring and an expected start day? I took the test last May and they called me for an interview next week. Also does anyone know about Valero hiring process or interview questions or have any suggestions? I'm also taking the Exxon test the week after my interview any suggestions for the Exxon test? Thanks in advance.....

I took the the Valero test in Norco in December of 2011. The Norco site was hiring 30 people and we were told we would get the test results this month sometime and the start date was feb or march. I also applied at 3 rivers. . I have not been notified if I passed the test or not. I do know that I have been added to the 3 rivers talent pool. Good luck to you. Let me know how your interview goes.

@khali Exxon will not call you have to keep checking the site to see when theres a testing session avaliable. I live in Louisiana and I'm taking the test in Mobile, AL. I changed my test location to that location just to taake the test. Even though thats my testing location I don't have to work there you also have to set up different work locations. Once again you can test anywhere but make sure you set up your job locations as well.

Jeff in Deer Park, Texas said: We have a pool of 40 people that passed testing and interviews that are ranked from 1 to 40. I was number 2 and I believe they are up to number 25 or 30. When this pool is used up TPC will have another round of testing and interviews. I'm just guessing but it will probably be around May. They post it on all the job boards so keep an eye open.

Jeff, can you give me any insight as to what the Assessment & Interview process for TPC Group was like? I tested with them this morning and was told they were looking for 20 people for the applicant pool in Pt Neches. A total of 70 applicants were tested & they will be doing the Assessments & Interviews in 2 weeks. Supposedly they are rushing to fill 3 vacancies at the Pt Neches location.

I also tested for the position at the Port Neches TPC facility. The woman giving the test told us starting pay was $21.80 I think... Is that true, or is it actually $25.50? I feel like I did well on the test so hopefully I get a call to interview.

It was the norm for operator test as far as the questions go.... Mostly understanding information and mechanical aptitude. What made it better to me, is they gave you a lot of time to finish it. Usually you don't have time to answer all the questions in each section, but with this testing method I had time to go back and double check almost every question I answered.

The assessment is with 3 psychologists that want to know how u think and the interview is like any typical interview. Be sure to stress safety in the interview. Good luck!

Check the TWIC website. If you had a dui during the seven years prior to your TWIC application, then I don't think you can. If it was more than seven then yes. I am not exactly sure, I just heard that. I live and work in Texas; don't know about other states.

I'm amost positive you can still get a twic card with a DUI. The honest answer is most bigger plants won't touch you for the seven years due to insurance reasons. I just had a friend get a job offer from a big refinery in lake Charles, and the offer was repealed bc he had a DUI 2 years ago. That same friend just moved back from up north where he was working as an operator at a chemical plant. So some smaller plants will hire, but you will have to put in some work and impress in the interview. If nothing else the degree will help you get a good job with a contractor doing maintenance type work. Those jobs generally pay well, and the experience may offset the DUI when you get a shot at one of the plants.

You should still be able to get a twic since a dui is not a felony. As far as background checks, it will show up so talk to an attorney and get it expunged. With the dui expunged, only law enforcement officials and the government can see the dui on your record. Might cost some money but welk worth it.

Chris in Baton Rouge, Louisiana said: I am currently in school, working toward a PTEC degree. I have a few questions.

I know it varies, but, typically, what is the average starting pay, for a process technician. What does pay typically top off at, or does it top off? Are there specific pay scales, or do you receive a percentage pay raise, every year. If someone starts at $22/hr, what would they typically be making 5 years, 10 years, 20 years later?

I've seen some great salaries posted by process technicians. I've heard, on more than one occassion, of guys pulling in $90-$100K+. I'm wondering -- to pull in that kind of money, does it require constant over-time?

Just trying to get a gouge og pay. I've done research, and it all points to this being a great paying career, but most of the pay refers to starting pay, and doesn't mention expectations, beyong that. Such as, once you've been a process technician for 5-10+ years, etc.

You bet! you will live at the plant to pull in that

Nate you seem very interested in annual slary. An easy way to calculate this is by multiplying your hourly rate by 2080.Thisis is the total number of hours you work per year using a 40 hour week for 52 weeks per year. If your rate is $30 per hour you will earn $62400. No overtime or holiday pay.
