ExxonMobil Assessment Tests

ExxonMobil uses several pre-employment assessment tests as part of its hiring process. Though the exact tests depend on the position you are applying for, you’ll typically encounter the following aptitude tests:

  • Mechanical Aptitude Test- assesses your mechanical ability, that is your spatial understanding and ability to incorporate mechanical principles to solve problems. ExxonMobil uses the SHL Mechanical Comprehension Test.
  • Personality Test-  Similar to other employment personality tests, you will be asked to rate statements about your behavior at work.
  • Numerical Applications - This tests your numerical reasoning, including math word problems covering basic operations like multiplication and division. 
  • Checking Data Accuracy - This tests your ability to read numerical charts and answer questions about them. 
  • Use of Information - This tests your reasoning ability and includes word problems that require you to guess missing information or draw conclusions from incomplete information. 

Note: Failing to pass the ExxonMobil online tests requires waiting a minimum of two years to retake the assessments. So, it is highly recommended to get to know the test questions prior to taking the assessment.  

Free ExxonMobil Test Questions and Answers

1. If the left cogwheel rotates in the direction of the arrow, in which direction does the right wheel rotate?

Direction 1
Direction 2
The wheel won't turn.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The cogwheels turn in opposite directions. When the left wheel turns in the direction of the arrow (anti-clockwise), the middle wheel will turn to the right (clockwise). This will cause the right wheel to turn anti-clockwise.


2. There are six printers in "Today's news" newspaper, each printing at the same constant rate. When working together, the six printers can complete the printing of tomorrow's newspaper within 12 hours. If the owner wishes to reduce the printing time to 8 hours,

how many other printers will he need to purchase, each with the same constant rate?

Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

On work rate questions, we recommend using the triangle technique to quickly and easily solve these kinds of questions:

exxonmobil sample question

'r' refers to 'working rate,' 't' refers to 'time,' and 'w' refers to 'Work' (in total). To solve the question, place the data in the triangle, refer to the horizontal line as a division line, divide the work, and get the working rate.



3. Which axle will spin at a faster rate? 

exxonmobil sample question 2
both will spin at the same speed
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

Axle 2 of the blue wheel turns along the circumference of the larger wheel, while axle 1 is in the center of the large wheel. This means that at the same time that axle 1 spins, axle 2 needs to complete a greater distance along the circumference of the large wheel and therefore axle 2 will spin faster.
