    Graduate Petroleum Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BG Group in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially I applied online, answering a series of tremendous questions. I was then sent a verbal and a numerical shl test which I passed. Then , I was invited for an interview in campus, which was half technical half competency-based. For the technical part, I was asked about Bg, Bo, Rs, RFT data, GOR. For the behavioral part I was asked mainly situational questions and about my inspirations.

    Human Resources Grad Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Reservoir Engineer - Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Completions Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BG Group in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was a little hap hazard, took place over the phone and then on a virtual video conference. Process took a long time and almost went with another company due to slow HR processes. Position advertised and actual job were not the same, but that was expected.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked to recount an instance where I had to work with a difficult person or group and how I dealt with that situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was good, was able to push then for a good deal, this is due to office being near London and not many oil patch people want to work there.

    Project Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BG Group in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The company atmosphere was perfect, every body so courteous and polite. My interview took about 75 minutes starting with a brief of the job itself and then went on with competency based questions. I was told that my experience of working on multi projects was not enough to get the job. I wish I asked more question about the job to make my mind more focused on WHAT IS MY CONTRIBUTION TO THAT PARTICULAR ROLE. Perhaps I could demonstrate my experience better. I regret it!
