Lab Supervison/Fuels Compliance (Current Employee) –  Port Arthur, TXJune 16, 2016
Total has provided a good living for many years and allowed advancement to a point. It is a French company still in the grip of the turmoil of moving from a middle tier E&P/Petrochemical company to an oil major after absorbing Fina and Elf about 15 years ago. There are not many opportunities for advancement for those who did not attend school in France or for those who do not wish an overseas assignment. But, all-in-all it has been a good place to work.
Pros
Good work atmosphere
Cons
Turmoil, lower pay than some other major oil companies

Process Operator/ OM&S Dept. Terminal Operator (Current Employee) –  Port Arthur, TXNovember 18, 2012
Tensions run high among hourly vs salary(mgt)employees. Safety is stressed from mgt but it is expected that the job be done by any means necessary as safely as possible to meet deadlines. Working in a team enviroment with my cowokers is the best part of my job.
Pros
free overtime lunches
Cons
rising cost of health care insurance

Process Technician (Current Employee) –  Carville, LAOctober 11, 2012
A typical day at Total Petrochemicals, Inc. is pretty ordinary. I have worked for the company for 12 years and there just isn't much room for advancement. The hardest part of the job is the shift work and the most enjoyable part is the coworkers.
Pros
coworkers
Cons
no room for advancement, shift work
