Just to let you all know when I went through this process I was in the third class out o the group I interviewed with the interview took place on march 14 and they hired a June, a October, and a January. I happened to be in the January class. It was exactly 8 months from the interview when I got the call from mrs. Spanelli so stay positive if you are in the January class you probably will not hear anything for a few months but three is still hope. Good luck to you all.

Hello, I recently traveled to Pascagoula from eight hours away to take a test for an operator trainee job at chevron. While the chances of getting the job are slim due to the sheer volume of applicants, I am still hoping to get some information from locals. I am wondering if anyone has any info on starting pay, how long it takes to make top pay, the chances of getting overtime, and the overall work environment. I would also love to hear any feedback relating to the city of Pascagoula. How is the school system, how are the people, where are the best places to live etc.... I would greatly appreciate any info. Thanks so much.
In light of what happened the other day @ the refinery I once again say there's a d*mn good reason I don't want to work around women in an industrial setting. Their brains aren't wired for mechanical thinking, they're not physically fit to work "man's work", they need to be in administration & that kind of crap.

My condolences to her family but I feel completely vindicated by my earlier claim. Most of the employees there who want women secretly just want to sleep with their female coworkers.

We need workplace segregation in terms of the sexes in industrial industries.

U are obviously stuck in the wrong era. With your perception and attitude, U would have never made it out there. THE HIRING PROCESS IS STRESSFUL BUT IT SELECTS THE VERY BEST INDIVIDUALS QUALIFIED. Most of the Good Old boy hiring methods have been lifted. You want find alot of Good Old boys in those classes at the college. That program created at MGCCC gives the candidates a good foundation to build upon and a starting point for Chevron to pull from. If u cannot make it threw the program or your scores are low, u have no business out there effected others lives. As for the woman that lost her life(Rest her soul)She had completed her 3 year probation time. She was well into her 5 year. Your discriminatory ways would have been reflected on the job and you would have been terminated during the 3 year probation period. She was a good person and a good worker. As a contractor, there were good memories of her as a worker and as a person. She was always on task, approacheable, friendly, and had a wonderful sense of humor. She was qualified to do what u call" Man's Work" and did it. No on knows when there time is. No one can control everything and or event in their life. Human era isn't always the out, sometimes equipment fails or other factors come into play.

I'm not trying to insult the woman's memory, just pointing out one of the reasons the unemployment rate is so high period is because women want to be Ms Independent nowadays & want to prove themselves by moving into "mens trades" like construction, police work, firefighting, manufacturing, welding, etc.

There's a reason 90% of nurses are women....

Wake up man and use the common sense God gave you. It's not our place to say how or where someone should make their living. God is in control of where He wants us to be. With that being said, if you think otherwise go outside and tell the sun to stop shining or the moon to limit its glow. And people wonder why their blessings are hindered, thinking like that cuz will keep you in a place where you will keep asking the same question, why? Praying that God removes those scales from your eyes and soften your heart so you can see clearly that this world belongs to God and He is in charge of appointing whomever, wherever according to His will.

In Jewish times women were treated as chattel -- slaves almost. Property.

The reason this depression is worse than the one in the 30s is that the only people who have jobs are those who 1) know people who can get them one, 2) people lucky enough to get thru expensive multi-year college or trade programs, or 3) those who work part time fast food type minimum wage work.

I've been doing the 3rd option for about a decade whenever I'm lucky enough to find it. Women period should not be working outside the home period, that's bad enough. The problem is that this country's society has become so bizarre & f**ked up that women have gotten used to being in charge of everything, & lol, things don't work that way.....

Go anywhere else in the world & men don't tolerate half the crap American men do.

hair test...regardless of legality the employer has the right to dismiss an employee proven to be under the influence.

The lady that was tragically killed died through no fault of her own. I was working very close to that furnace at the time and there was nothing as an outside operator, she could have done to prevent it.
There were several factors that contributed to that explosion and none of them rested on her. There were three other men working right next to her at the time and one on the console. The reason a women died and not a man was just extremely bad luck.
As operators we work in plants containing 500 to 1000 degree process just waiting to get out and light off or burn the shit out of you. We routinely operate 50 year old equipment that contains 40k ppm hydrogen disulfide which can kill you before you know your in a cloud. We have caustic that will burn you. We have acid that will eat you alive. We have up to 600# steam that will burn the skin off your body or just blow up equipment in your face.
Every operator walks around that shit 12 hours a day. Sometimes on day shift sometimes on night with little to no sleep to work on.
We aren't killing people everyday because we prepair. We study. We work as a team. That can go only do far. Sometimes shit happens. The lady died through no fault of her own. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time and that furnace didn't give a shit about her sex, color, or creed.

You wouldn't make it through the interview process. Ignorance isn't welcome in the thinking operators world.

I was in operator training when that happened. Terrible. No fault of sex or race. I'm thankful that your stupidity ends on a computer screen and not out here. And MJS is right, arrogance will keep you out.

Uh, you live in Lake Charles and you're coming here? Isn't there more oil work in your place than here?
Go to Houston or Beaumont Tx, that's where all the real oil refinery work is.
I've taken the operator test twice and passed with flying colors. I made it to the top 25% but the problem was they were only looking for like 20 positions and there were 90 of us there.
I hate to be so blunt but it really is a 'good old boy' system. If you know somebody, it's easier to get out there than if you don't. Unless you're just dumb lucky or you know somebody you WON'T get a job out there, even with experience in operations and with good references. Houston is a far better market @ getting a job in your trade friend.
As for places to live? Stay the hell where you are. There's gotta be more oil work there than here.
I even called the local jobs center and Chevron's security office to try and get a construction or safety job during the construction of the new section of the refinery. Chevron isn't even going thru the local jobs center to hire people. They're bringing in their own crews from elsewhere.
So much for hiring locals.
Uh, school systems? Pascagoula isn't bad but the school system is, per the Mississippi Press, 50% black and 10% Mexican. Only 40% white these days, if that means anything to you. It does to some people even though it's borderline racist.
The white flight out of Moss Point/Pascagoula has been going on for 30 years now and is only accelerating. I was in P-goula recently and I saw TONS of for rent signs on homes.
No jobs?
If you do live in Pascagoula, live near the beach as the rest of the city is a ghetto or a stinkhole filled with old shipyard blue collar houses and neighborhoods that have gone unfilled since @ least the hurricane, and probably even before. The city's been in decline since the 90s when we started losing shipyard contracts en masse.
Whatever you do, do not live in Moss Point. It's the crime capital of both the coast and Jackson Co. from what I've heard, seen, and been told. If you do have to live in 'Moss Point'- then live in Escatawpa. Which is like the area of Moss Point near I-10. The black folks there tend to be more working class and the white people as well. Although there are plenty of crooks from what I hear as well.
Gautier is ok but it's serviced by the Pascagoula School District and from what I'm told, it's slowly declining in quality. There's a mall there but it's dying. It lost like 4 of its best stores in the last 2 years alone. In another ten years it'll probably die.
Ocean Springs is where most of the white people and the black folks with sense or money live. Either that or in rural areas like Hurley, Escatawpa, Vancleave, or Grand Bay Alabama, which is only like 10 minutes away from Pascagoula.
If I had to pick and choose I'd live either in Ocean Springs or Alabama, as its not that far of a drive.
But that's if you absolutely have to. Jackson Co. has been bleeding jobs for 15 years now and the population is the same. I don't know where these people work.
The shipyard has like only 25% of the jobs it had in the 80s so obviously not there. Chevron is about the same in terms of employment numbers as it was in the 90s.
I guess some work at the casinos.
Just keep in mind, if you come here, you better own a car. If you don't, don't expect help from anybody and don't expect any kind of train/mass transit as that's only in Biloxi/Gulfport.
My advice, go to Houston. We literally have on refinery here, Chevron. Lake Charles has more than that and I know Houston has more refineries than they know what to do with.
Good luck.
I have lived here all of my life and maybe 50% of what you said is true. The rest is a matter of opinion. Actually Gautier is leading in crime and was when you wrote this. As far as Chevron there is no "good ole boy" system anymore. Used to be years ago but hiring comes from California. My spouse is an employee. This is not hear say. But a fact.
