    Internship Interview

    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.

    Apply through University Career website. Was email about the interview offer. The interview was mostly behavioral questions. No Technical Question at all.

Be prepared to feel comfortable with that type of HR.

    Contracted Corporate Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    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?
