    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TOTAL (Houston, TX) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process took about two weeks. I basically had 4 overall interviews with TOTAL. The first day was with HR and the hiring manager; and the follow-up interview day was with two other managers in the department. Luckily, most of the questions between the managers were all similar. I was hired a couple of days later after my follow-up interview and I had 24 hours to accept or decline the offer.

    Negotiation

    There are no negotiations as an intern (at least not from me). It's pretty ideal to get paid $20/hr.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TOTAL in January 2015.

    Interview

    easy and just one call. It is very easy if your university has some connections with this company and there is not a lot of opening position to the public specially online. They usually directly sent some project emails to the friendly university and college. You can only pick up some opportunities by chance.
