Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Pullman, WA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BP in October 2012.

Interview Details – BP came to my college campus for a career fair and conducted interviews following the career fair. The interview starts off with personal questions that range from what you are most proud of to give an example of when you set your sights to high or failed at something. The interview was really straight forward and laid back. The second half of the interview consisted of a technical question to see how well you could think on your feet. My question involved a pipeline that went from a location inland to offshore, that had to travel over a mountain and into a valley.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question for me was having to apply equations to the technical question. BP asked me if I knew any equations for what was happening inside the pipeline.   Answer Question

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Toledo, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at BP in November 2009.

Interview Details – Got a call about having an on-site interview, I worked in the industry so they didn't ask for a phone interview. They payed for my gas and lodgings. Got to the site early in the morning, had a small tour of the office, then got right down to the interviews. Interviewed with the two guys who would be my bosses, lots of situation questions. Then I had a skills review with two of the engineers. Lots of how does a tower run, what would you do if your plant wasn't operating well question. Overall, nice people.

Interview Question – Why haven't you gotten a job in this economy?   Answer Question
