They will make your life real hard because they see new hire as a threat to their rice bowl. For training wise, don't expect guidance, you are on your own. I am currently looking for new job. Good luck for those who want to come in. I am really regret to accept the offer. BTW i was like you before looking for answer in this thread because heard good and bad about Exxon. After real life experience thats it.

what is your role?

Guys, no joke. I am one of their contractor stationed in EM plant.
Seriously for fresh grad or potential candidate, don't be sways by their big name.
People here backstab each other in multiple way, pays are not as great as previous era.
Old bird always stand behind their "experience" and use that in every conversation.
Basically tell you that they eat salt more than you eat rice.

And it is true, old bird here are damn cocky, its like a culture here.

I really pity those who have no insider news about what is happening inside here.
There is many stories here that I can't reveal much but stay out of this company.
Consider yourself lucky because there is a dedicated forum here for EM, not like Glassdoor where you can only post a few sentence to review.

Im not a diploma holder and they offer me $2100 for office hour? And proudly say that i rejected the position.

Instrument and Electrical (IE) sections across jurong and pac experienced a higher than usual attrition rate in the last two years. Alot of work piling up because it’s an old plant, old birds don’t know how to maintain well and old ops techs keep everything under the rug for so long that now everything surfaced and suddenly everything become important / critical to everyday operations.

I’m back again, negotiate faster please.

If you know how to network, every company is a good company. Sadly, those who don’t know how to network are typically good employees. One good example is Lee Bong Tong. Old bird from refinery era and have good network. Everyday come to work like going to old folks home for chalet. Never work but take big bucks home.

“Under review” means that they are still shortlisting, i.e. considering other applicants as well. Once they have shortlisted you, they will call or send an email out for the interview. In any case if you’ve applied for a post in Singapore, i’ve not heard of anyone who had his or her airfare reimbursed for the interview. But considering how desperate they are at the moment, i wouldn’t be surprised if they would give you around $5k/month pay not inclusive of bonuses and pay for your flight tickets. If not, they might arrange for a skype interview or something.

Apply for Exxonmobil operations technician post but keep your options open. Don’t burn any bridges with your current employer.

I say this because the amount of people who decide to stay after 2 years is in the minority. Many left for reasons like, unable to do their work because seniors are not teaching them enough to pass their post qualification or credit point assessment. In the end, no promotion.

You must understand that the seniors have more and more work to do and cannot be expected to train you well enough as well as getting bombarded by management that we’re not looking after the equipment well. So we respond by taking care of our ricebowls first.

New guys are on your own to go beyond yourselves to learn. And the skills are not taught in a book, cos for Exxon, most of it is proprietary info. Good luck to all newbies.

I have a previous experience in one of ExxonMobil's
joint ventures here in Saudi and I'm hoping
to get an offer for a similar position in Singapore
Where they have the exact same plant.

5k is what I'm actually hoping for but I'm not
doing it for the money.. I just want the experience!

Thanks for your reply.
