    I have been working at Total Petrochemicals and Refining USA


    Stable employment here with the opportunity to move up in the Company. Pay is very fair now and it seems we may begin to receive bonuses in operations like the other large Companies in this comparison.


    Shift work is the majority of the work if you can manage the days and nights. There is overtime here so you can increase your yearly income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push for the bonuses. This job is more than most management really realizes with the responsibilities we have to take on. This will give your employees more pride than you will ever know.

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    The interview phases consisted of an initial 10 minute interview with HR reps from the different sites the company was hiring for and a second circuit interview at whichever site was interested in you after the first stage. The circuit interview consisted of 5, 20 minute interviews with various process supervisors from the site. Questions ranged from basic behavioral questions to questions about past experience and why you are pursuing the job itself. The questions are designed to make the interviewee present a problem, their solution to the problem, and the result of how their solution to the problem worked.
