Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I worked at TOTAL

Pros

Very nice building, cafeteria and facilities. Access to all sports facilities even as a contractor. Nice atmosphere and good team spirit.

Cons

Not much work given (as an summer temp worker). Although this was in the summer months, so a lot of people were on vacation.
