I was a store manager at a franchise ( Ridgeway petroleum) based Exxon for 5 years

General Manager (Former Employee)
Munster, IN

I worked at Exxon Mobil full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood paying job without a college degree

Consworking all holidays no matter what, working several hours a week, no bonuses, no benefits

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to the owners of the specific Exxon franchise I worked for would be to respect your employees. They are working their butts off for you for way less than what they are worth. Also do not advance people into positions they are not ready for so fast and, maybe you would not have such a high turnover rate!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's all simple, time-killing work.

I worked at Exxon Mobil part-time for less than a year

Pros- Not physically challenging
- Received free food
- Very flexible hours
- Friendly and helpful management

Cons- The job is monotonous and repetitive; pretty boring

Fast-paced and technically challenging, but...

Information Systems (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Exxon Mobil as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsFlexible work hours (varies with Supervisor)

Cons[1] Contractors shouldn't expect to be treated with respect. That's reserved for the employees.
[2] If anything goes wrong, it's YOUR fault.
[3] If you get hurt on/off the job, it's YOUR fault.
[4] If you need to work overtime, you're working inefficiently.

Advice to Senior ManagementLighten-up, it wouldn't kill you to be nicer to your employees and contractors.
