The hardest part of this job was not getting board. I also tried not to get to overheated working outside in summertime. It was not challenging job and it I kept myself challenged by talking to operators to know exactly what I was going to be watching out for in the area I was working in.
This is a job for a single person with no children or someone who need the experience. Sometimes you work so many hours you have no home time. Other times there is no work and you have too much home time. There is no schedule and you can be called to work at the drop of a dime. I love the job that I do and the services rendered but I absolutely despise the schedule and the management from ExxonMobil.
CDL Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Gonzales, LA – 9 November 2017
This company will work you like a dog and then promise you raises after a year that you will never get. Their equipment is all junk and everybody will stab you in the back. There are so many managers and very few workers. One person will tell you one thing and another will tell you something else. Management is constantly changing for the worse. Do yourself a favor and drive down the street to Airgas
Permit Writer / Safety Officer (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – 30 September 2017
Total Safety is a great place to work , if you are willing to travel, and don't mind being away from home on occasions. The environment for learning and personal growth in the field of Safety is always present
Total joke in dispatch. No direction. No vision. No enjoyment. No leaders. Very high turn over rate. Change schedules routinely. Must keep track of your time yourself and check it when you get your paycheck. You can count on your time being wrong once or twice a month. Equipment consistently out of registration and DOT inspections. No PM schedules. Low pay well below market. No pay raises, no performance raises. Performance appraisals are meaningless. New employee with no experience makes the same as Senior drivers. No advancement. Can not speak to any of the other departments at this company only the dispatch department. Would not recommend this company if you are a driver. There's a reason they can not keep DOT hazmat drivers employed.
Very low pay well under market for DOT hazmat drivers, no advancement, unskilled management

Total Safety is a great company to work for. I gained valuable experience. "The team" were absolutely awesome on and off the job site. The job experience and working with Total Safety was a experience I will always cherish.
Safety Attendant (Current Employee) – Texas City, TX – 23 June 2017
This is a very stressful work environment. They have certain people who they call for jobs all the time. Management shows favoritism. This job causes you to be away from your family a lot. The compensation should be better compared to the other companies that do the same type of work.
Breathing Air Technician (Former Employee) – Baytown, TX – 31 May 2017
A constant never ending work load and pay was mediocre for how much they bragged we were making off the oil company we were contracted out to. Always more work but very little to ever bring up the job culture. Way too many managers out there with not enough technicians to do the job effectively.
No communication skills, unfair to others, all for themselves
Safety Attendant (Former Employee) – Garyville, LA – 29 May 2017
I worked for total safety on and off for 3 years with a very clean profile and not one time was I offered to be promoted. The project managers are the worst people I have ever worked for! Favoritism is a big part of this company..
