I applied online. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX).
Applied online. Started with a phone interview with hiring manager then an in-person interview. Interview was technical and they wanted to know what kind of economic evaluations I've done. I was not selected for the role and I'm not sure why.

I interviewed at BHP Billiton in September 2014.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX) in June 2014.
Very long process. Took over 5 months from time of application to interview. Recruitment was very slow, no urgency at all. Interview was structured, with very typical questions regarding experience and behavior. Did not receive update from recruiter. Will not answer calls or emails to provide updates. It has been an additional 2 months and have heard nothing, despite repeated attempts to contact. Not sure if position was eliminated due to falling oil, but please have the courtesy to inform the candidates who go through the entire interview process instead of dropping out completely. Very unprofessional.

I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX) in August 2013.
Received a telephone call stating that they were with BHP Billiton in Houston Texas and that they didn't want to waste my time or theirs so she wanted to ask me a question. She asked my current salary. I gave her my current salary but made it clear that I would be willing to accept less if given the opportunity as my main interest was to work for a quality company like BHP. I later received an email stating that they decided not to consider me. No reason given although I was more than qualified for the position after working as a Special Agent/Federal Criminal Investigator for over15 years. I feel I was not considered due to my current salary and they ignored the offer to work for less.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX) in July 2012.
Represented by an outside recruiter, interview scheduled very efficiently and timely. It was a panel interview with hiring managers from different business units as there were several positions open. Allocated time seemed too short for panel interview and one interviewer did not show up. Of the kother two, one had to leave before interview was finished due to double booking.
- Hard for interviewer to ask appropriate questions on behalf of several business units. This resulted in very general questions. 1 Answer
