Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TOTAL (New York, NY) in January 2015.

Interview

Two Rounds technical questions For writers, a random sentence can help them get their creative juices flowing. Since the topic of the sentence is completely unknown, it forces the writer to be creative when the sentence appears. There are a number of different ways a writer can use the random sentence for creativity. The most common way to use the sentence is to begin a story. Another option is to include it somewhere in the story. A much more difficult challenge is to use it to end a story. In any of these cases, it forces the writer to think creatively since they have no idea what sentence will appear from the tool.

    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.

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

    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.
