Senior Programmer / Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 March 2018
The majority of IT work has been migrated off shore. If you are in Calgary and are in the oil business, there can be a career for you. If you are looking to relocate outside of Canada, there can be a career for you. But this once solely Canadian owned and operated company (Imperial Oil - Esso) is now simply a source of oil for a giant American Corporation. Stay away.
Planner/Scheduler (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 18 February 2018
I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with. I would be happy to go back there again should another contract position become available. The capital organization would benefit from more cohesive project management procedures. I believe these were in the works but not available to contract employees leaving us guessing at times on what the protocols were to do our jobs.
Great people to work with
Frequent changes in management created a stressful at times environment
A very productive place to work for. A lot of processes that you will learn.
Sr. Network Administrator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 February 2018
A very great place to learn processes and corporate rules and regulation. The team is fun to work with and very professional. Since there is always structure on everything it allows individual to learn from it and make it part of ones portfolio. Working with Exxon Mobil is really a career booster.
ExxonMobil has provided me with a skill set that is invaluable in todays market. They strive to develop their employees and contractors and have given me tools that i will utilize through the rest of my career.
One of the worst company structures for IT support I have ever worked with.
EMIT Area Ops (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 September 2017
Worked with the EMIT group in the Edmonton refinery. The interview was for a tier1 position and in reality it was a Project Managers position. Safety is ridiculously high...papercut involves days of paperwork. Was let go because rear passenger in vehicle did not have seat belt fully locked. Server room is a disaster and was nearly electrocuted 3 times along with the raised floor being damaged and ready to fail.
You will have no access to repair anything! Worst organization I have ever worked for.
Pay is decent
Everything else is just horrid...Exxonmobil is like working for the devil.
