Best Places to Interview: 2017 (#36)
ExxonMobil, the largest publicly traded international oil and gas company, uses technology and innovation to help meet the world’s growing energy needs. We hold an industry-leading inventory of resources and are one of the world’s largest integrated refiners, marketers of petroleum products and chemical manufacturers.
Exxon Mobil Corporation is committed to being the world's premier petroleum and petrochemical company. To that end, we must continuously achieve superior financial and operating results while simultaneously adhering to high ethical standards.
The following principles guide our relationships with our shareholders, customers, employees, and communities:
We are committed to enhancing the long-term value of the investment dollars entrusted to us by our shareholders. By running the business profitably and responsibly, we expect our shareholders to be rewarded with superior returns. This commitment drives the management of our Corporation.
Success depends on our ability to consistently satisfy ever changing customer preferences. We commit to be innovative and responsive, while offering high quality products and services at competitive prices.
The exceptional quality of our workforce provides a valuable competitive edge. To build on this advantage, we will strive to hire and retain the most qualified people available and to maximize their opportunities for success through training and development. We are committed to maintaining a safe work environment enriched by diversity and characterized by open communication, trust, and fair treatment.
We commit to be a good corporate citizen in all the places we operate worldwide. We will maintain high ethical standards, obey all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and respect local and national cultures. Above all other objectives, we are dedicated to running safe and environmentally responsible operations.
Exxon Mobil Corporation aspires to be at the leading edge of competition in every aspect of our business. That requires the Corporation's resources — financial, operational, technological, and human — to be employed wisely and evaluated regularly.
While we maintain flexibility to adapt to changing conditions, the nature of our business requires a focused, long-term approach. We will consistently strive to improve efficiency and productivity through learning, sharing, and implementing best practices. We will be disciplined and selective in evaluating the range of capital investment opportunities available to us. We will seek to develop proprietary technologies that provide a competitive edge.
We aspire to achieve our goals by flawlessly executing our business plans and by adhering to these guiding principles and the foundation policies that follow.
Today we operate in most of the world's countries and are best known by our familiar brand names: Exxon, Esso and Mobil. We make the products that drive modern transportation, power cities, lubricate industry and provide petrochemical building blocks that lead to thousands of consumer goods.
ExxonMobil is a dynamic, exciting place to work. We hire exceptional people, and every one of them is empowered to think independently, take initiative and be innovative. We invite you to explore the world of opportunities waiting for you.
We are committed to our employees’ professional development and supporting their career goals. We seek to foster a diverse workforce of highly talented individuals committed to achieving our business priorities.
We support local employee networks globally to foster a work environment committed to diversity and inclusion.
These include the Asian Connection for Excellence (ACE); Black Employee Success Team (BEST); Global Organization for the Advancement of Latinos (GOAL); People for Respect, Inclusion and Diversity of Employees (PRIDE); Veteran Advocacy and Support Team (VAST); and Women’s Interest Network (WIN). We also support diversity-based education programs and professional organizations such as the National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, among others. We believe these strategic investments in education will help build a global, diverse pool of talent to advance technologies to help meet future energy needs.
We remain committed to improving the gender balance within our company. ExxonMobil promotes leadership opportunities for women throughout all aspects of the employment relationship, including recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, transfers, and wage and salary administration.
I worked at ExxonMobil full-time (More than 10 years)
Excellent pay and benefits, strong compliance culture, excellent opportunities for people with a lot of energy, intelligence and persistence, retirement plan and savings matching still alive and well! You can have several careers under one roof and build up toward retirement, which is a realistic possibility at XOM.
Review process can be tough with a strict ranking system - it's all about performance.
Advice to Management
Rethink the mathematically precise employee ranking system. Keep up the good work as the industry leader!
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ExxonMobil (Houston, TX).
First an on campus interview, then interviewed at Houston. 3 interviews. 2 are behavioural and 1 is a mix of industry accounting and finance. Overall they just want to get to know you and they really care about your grades and specifically accounting knowledge. You get to meet many people and everyone is very nice.
