Select the PrepPack™ You Need

Are you looking for a new job at an oil and gas company which refines and extracts minerals and oil, or works with chemicals and plastics? To get hired, you will need to take assessment tests and pass interviews. To help you navigate the process, we have researched the hiring process at the biggest energy companies such as ExxonMobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, and Occidental Petroleum. Our Oil and Gas Bundle can help you get ready for every step of the hiring process.

What Is the Hiring Process in the Oil and Gas Industry?

  1. Submit an online application as well as your CV and a cover letter.
  2. Complete a telephone interview or record answers to a set of questions in a video interview.
  3. Go to one of the company's locations for an on-site interview and meet workers on the site. You should prepare for questions that are both behavioral and competency-based. 
  4. Take an aptitude test which examines your numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, and inductive/logical reasoning skills.
  5. You may also have to take a situational judgment or personality test as well. These tests evaluate your workplace-related behaviors and attitudes in order to determine if you would be a positive addition to the company.

What Assessment Tests Will I Have to Take?

For most positions in the energy industry, you will have to take an aptitude test which measures your cognitive abilities in three different subjects:
  • Numerical reasoning: your understanding of tables and your ability to draw conclusions from facts and figures
  • Verbal reasoning: your ability to comprehend, synthesize, and evaluate written information
  • Logical reasoning: your ability to solve problems and analyze information 

 You can prepare for any of these tests (and more) using JobTestPrep's Energy Industry Bundle.
