    It was a mechanical aptitude, math, and reading comprehension test for pre-employment

    If you get on there it's an excellent place to work, for operators. You'll get an exceptional salary and benefits package.

    Best of luck to you. ALOT of people take that test. A good amount of them pass it. A small few of those get interviews, and a couple of them eventually get the job. It'll really help if you know someone and have a P-Tech degree.

    Which contractor do you work for? I'm pretty familiar with Exxon Baytown because they're one of our customers. I'd bet that they take a closer look at employees from thier embedded contractors that are apart of their operations like Savage, SGS, and maybe even Rescar over maintenance contractors.

    P-Tech is an Associates Degree.. Also I'm pretty sure Austin is the main contractor in ExxonMobil Baytown

    My uncle has been an operator at plant down in the La Porte area for 30 years -- dude makes a ridiculous amount of money.

    I don't think they are, at least not on the refinery side. I could be wrong though.
