    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at TOTAL (Lagos (Nigeria)).

    Interview

    Very unprofessional interviewers, more interested in who you know and your personal life than your ability to do the job. It seems to be the typical Nigerian situation where the interview is just a show and someone has already been selected for the job. Aggressive, rude senior interviewer, generally a very negative experience.
