Overall Reviews at Total
Policies and procedure
Total has great policies at International level, Paris. Locally in South Africa management practice tribalism and racism. There is no job security and the company restructure annually.
Depot is great challenge and allow for orpotunity to learn more operations
Every day is a unique day with its own challenges at fuel depot: You manage Stock ( gains and losses); Staff members including contractors ( e.g. security, cleaners, truck drivers and other casual workers). High decision making and budget at controlled centrally and filters down to depots, which we(depot) needs to control all overheads. Ability to run maintenance schedules and purchase requisitions keeps one on his toes because procument/maintenance has to be in order. Making sure depot is inline with authority (government and local municipal bylaws). Depot supervisor allows you to be a "Jack of all trade" as you constantly required to troubleshoot all challenges from all positions.
Would not like to review as my last months at Total SA was not a happy time.

Excellent Work Ethic
A complete diversified culture and an extreme passionate team made Total SA an ideal working experience for me.
At the company I learnt a lot of new things I things excluding the learnership I was there for, I was taught how to do Admin in only two weeks. The management were always willing to help us students with any concern we had and it was a fun and flexible place to work at. The hardest time of the job will be when we needed to prepare for Rail Tankers to off load Petrol and Diesel, The pipes that we were using were too heavy to carry but from then i was taught to be independent and strong.
The most enjoyable part of all the jobs that I was required to do was when i would be in the Admin Office and helping with the Admin work,I like helping and interacting with different people so I would enjoy working in the Admin Office more that when I was outside working with pipes but in overall I felt privileged and honored to be given such an opportunity that has made me who I am today.
ProsFree lunches and gifts
I Learned alot about how a company is run and about costing and GP on products and also alot about managing staff and anylizing problems on the admin side of the business, Hardest part of the Job I would say is working the long hours , But i enjoy working with the numbers and seeing how the shop grows - As i came from head office (Zululand Petroluim) I know what it is do anylize reports and why it is important to pay attention to reports and now feel its time to move on to the next challenge and broaden my knowledge.
Typical day at work : Checking stock in, Costing and GP on products , Cashups dealing with customer and staff problems.
Productive and fun work place
I have learned to be flexible and work under pressure. My role is solely dependant on other business users. I have also learned to be patience with people, and to work effectively with different people on different levels of management.
I am good team player that is able to relate to everyone in our team and other teams. I am generally a friendly person and easy person to work with and rely on.
My co-workers and I , have a good working relationship and we respect eachother's space and privacy.
The hardest part of my job is that it is slowly becoming less challenging because I am now very familiar with the trends and culture. This has made the job to be less challenging.
So for I believe this role created a good opportunity to learn and now I am ready to take up more challenges and grow further.
ProsFlexible hours, If you come early you work your full hours and can leave early, Managers give you an opportunity to fully do your job without babyseating you.
International company with ability to grow as an individual
Total is a corporate company, profit driven and required highly skilled, educated and loyal people. The company allow growth in all facets of the business. \Total is people orientated , colleges becomes family. People skills and time management is essential to achieve objectives. Situated in Sandton, the only bad part is traffic

Working in TEPNG has been exciting, the co-workers are professional and the challenging projects are intertesting but the low pay is a no-no.

Having worked for 10 years for TOTAL FINA ELF. I can recommend any one who is applying for a position at TOTAL FINA ELF. The company does care for his employees which is very rare now days. The company contributes such as colonie vacances for children under 16 and also contributes for those who are over 17 going for further education and university. Total Fina Elf is fair and believes in equality and respects people of different backgrounds. Total Fina Elf provides facilities for those with children attending nurseries, organising trips abroad with a huge discount on fares and hotels. Total Fina Elf provides also cheap fuel/oil etc… to his employees regardless to their salary. Finally I would like to say a big thank you to Total Fina Elf.

Environnement et condition de travail agréable
Les journées de travail étaient bien souvent chargées, entre le suivi des fiches clients, les relances, les encaissements, et la gestion des appels. Nous avons beaucoup de chance de travailler dans un environnement sain et sécurisé . Il y a une bonne entente en général avec les collaborateurs. L'aspect difficile est de dépendre des autres, concernant les échanges d'informations . Et pour finir l'aspect agréable du poste, est le contact chaleureux avec les clients.

Great place to work and develop professionally. There is a lot of support from company and opportunity to try your hands across various departments.
Though can be a challenging environment because it is clearly target driven, but overall it is a fun and rewarding place to work.
There is a lot of support from company tools, procedures and principles. The work culture is friendly and very professional.
Overall, a great company to work in.
ConsTarget driven, hence possible long hours
