    Drilling Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TOTAL (Houston, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted for drilling supervisor role by HR from Pau, France. Scheduled a phone interview with HR and basically discussed my experience and what I was looking for in position. Was given overview of position and work atmosphere and expectations. We discussed availability/ time frame for starting and was told that I was exactly what they were looking for. HR contact informed me that he would push me through to the 3rd level of interview process because they were certain that I was an excellent candidate. Told me I would be contacted within 1-2 weeks for scheduling of next interview.
    It has now been 3 months, and I have not heard a single word back. I attempted to contact my HR contact 4 times to try to follow up and did not even receive the common courtesy of being told that they had changed their mind or that I was no longer being considered.
    I was very disappointed with Total in the handling of this whole process. Very unprofessional.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TOTAL (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied this internship through our school website. And i received an email confirming me that i am selected. So all the questions are behavioral questions, such as " do you have a strong sense of mission" or "tell me more about yourself". It was not bad at all; however, i was not well prepared at that time, so i got really nervous and blank minded. Make sure that you listen carefully to what they are asking for, and jump right to the point when you answer the questions.

    Contracted Corporate Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at TOTAL (Houston, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by TOTAL for a position that they decided would be a contracted position to start. They didn't yet have the full scope or the depth of the position defined, nor knew exactly the lines of responsibility. According to the HR person, who had been employed there a whopping total of 4 days before I came in for the interview, this position was not yet a firm one, and subject to modification or elimination, meaning, they don't know what the hell they want. But, when I got there, I was told they thought my background was "interesting" and "curious" and the only thing that was decisive here was that they wanted was to waste my time and money. Oh yes... they don't offer interview candidates any place to park at their downtown Houston office, so I had to spend $10 to park my car for the privilege of satisfying their "curiosity". I feel like sending them an invoice for the parking lot cost and for my wasted time. Would I be wrong to do that?
