    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BP in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's on campus recruiting in early September. I received an interview about a week later. There was a company dinner the night before that helped the candidates understand more about the company culture. The interviewers were all nice and helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was two part. The behavioral section was pretty predictable

      -A time you thought on our feet
      -A time you received good advice from a mentor

      The technical section was more difficult than I had expected and asked the candidates to do a times assignment of moving gas in and out of storage to meet supply and demand and the instructions were a little confusing.

    My personality doesn't fit with the high-stakes trader career. I chose a financial analyst position for BP.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at BP in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviews are behavioral and situational based. Confidence OK, but BP does not like too cocky. You must be pro diversity which is simple enough. Advancing at BP may require moving nationally or internationally, so if you are mobile make it known, and if you are not, keep it to yourself. Some people are starting to get skills tests, but some do not. So there might be an Excel, general math, accounting test,...etc. for some basic roles. But other interviews are situational and behavioral only, but be careful to gauge your audience and see if they want skill or behavior, and tailor your answer accordingly.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BP in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds of behavioural interviews. Key was to show how you think, that you have an analytical mind. Expressing interest in company was a big help. 2 round did have minor financial skills questions. interviewers are particularly interested in leadership and achievement. i gave several examples of both. offer came about a week later over the phone.
