Financial Analyst Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL) in February 2013.
Applied online and received a phone call a few days later to schedule the interview. Interview panel of five people, very informal, made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Most questions are behavioral, about providing examples of specific scenarios or situations from your past job experience. Questions will vary according to the role you apply for. Use the STAR method as a guide to answer any of the questions. If your answer is incomplete, expect follow up questions.
- Just in general, be very prepared for the typical "Why should you get this job? What makes you the top candidate? What differentiates you from the other candidates?" 1 Answer

Financial Analyst InterviewNo OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at BP (Anchorage, AK) in October 2012.
Submitted application online, asked to interview at campus career fair, then asked to travel to office location for another couple days of interviews and orientations.
- I had an unimpressive undergrad GPA thanks to my first couple years of college. Halfway through the interview, the lead interviewer dropped his scripted questions on the table in exasperation. He then asked me why I was even there with such a lousy GPA considering that most of my peers were 4.0 students. He followed up by grilling me on each class on my transcript in which I received a grade lower than a B. 1 Answer

The process took 3 days – interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in September 2011.
I filled out an online application after meeting the recruiters at my campus. When I heard I was invited to a final interview, I signed up online. A couple days prior to the interview I attended a pre-interview dinner that was mostly social, but the recruiters also asked a few preliminary questions about my interest in the job. The interview was with a panel of two employees at about 1 1/2 hours long - it was pretty intense. There were a few intro questions about myself, a behavioral portion, and then a technical portion which consisted of a really simple case study of a problem that I may face in the job.
