I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at TOTAL in June 2009.
Total recruitment process consists of 4 interviews. for me, the whole process lasted 4 months, between the moment I gave my CV to the recruiter at a career fair and the last interviwe with Operations Director. For the first interview, I had to pass a personnality test and then an interview with an external recruitment agency. The second interview was with a HR manager at the headquarters, the third with a career manager and the last was with the Director of Operations (my n+2). I find it strange that I didn't meet with more operationals, especially my n+1
