    I have been working at TOTAL full-time

    Pros

    Smart people. Interesting work. Good overall environment. Fair pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Typical corporate office politics. Heavy workload, management likes to see people working late hours regardless of whether or not work is completed.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on results rather than appearance.

    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.
