Rotational Development Program Full Time Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at BG Group in September 2013.
Interview Details – Attended information session at my school and then was invited by HR rep to join the two recruiters for a dinner at a very nice restaurant. Interviewed the next day. The company is very big on safety, values, and culture, and seems to be looking for highly qualified candidates. Master's degree or MBA would definitely help, as would having a previous internship with the company or with a similar type of F500 energy company.
Interview Question – Nothing too unexpected, asked me several questions about my resume. Biggest challenge, working with a group, standard behavioral questioning. View Answer

Reservoir Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BG Group in May 2012.
Interview Details – After I applied for the company in a career fair, and I talked quite a bit with the booth employee, I was called some weeks later. He said he would be in the city next week. Then I got the interview, 1on1, and he asked me a lot of questions, like: What I want to be in the next 5 or 10 years, etc.
Interview Question – He asked which particular aspects of this company interests me the most? Why I choose this company despite of others? View Answer
Electrical Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BG Group.
Interview Details – I applied online and that was a fairly long process asking questions that took a really, really long time to complete. I was honest and answered as best as I could and those responses in addition to my academic performance allowed me to get to the interview stage. Before going to the interview I reviewed projects I did over the course of my degree and did research on the company so I'd be ready to answer any question. Unfortunately, when I got in to the room for the interview my nerves got the better of me. I stuttered a lot and could not remember anything I reviewed. Surely, questions based on projects I completed were asked and I just was not able to answer them. About three weeks later I received an email saying I would not continuing along the recruitment process.
Interview Question – In any project that was completed, what problems did you encounter and what troubleshooting methods were used to overcome them? Answer Question
Reservoir Engineer - Graduate Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BG Group in December 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through their website and got invited for an interview in my University's campus after a month or so. I was interviewed by an HR lady that was really nice and a reservoir engineer. Both of them really kind and try to make you feel comfortable. Everything was perfect until the technical questions started. I think anybody with good petroleum engineering background would do fine but it was my first month into the master and I had no idea what was going on.
Interview Question – What happens to the water level if you are on a ship and you throw a rock in the water? Questions on all types of permeabilities. Answer Question
Human Resources Grad Scheme Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at BG Group in February 2014.
Interview Details – I have the feeling that the HR Dept of this company is very little professional and I know as a fact some of them lack any HR formal formation altogether. This as a result affects the potential objectivity of the candidates assessment. At some points during the activities of the AC I thought the assessors had absolutely no idea what I was talking about HR wise and I also mentioned some facts about the company I highly doubt they were even aware of. Getting people that are actually acknowledgeable of HR technical aspects and not just basic, on-the job experience would increase the quality of their HR Dept. Moreover, the feedback provided was a bit laughable to be honest, kind of masquerading the real reason why I wasn't successful, which I understand but please try to be more honest with the candidates.
Interview Question – When did you act against your ethical values Answer Question
