    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    I had an interview during my study in business school. The process was long and it was difficult to schedule interview time at convenient time. Moreover interviews were rescheduled 2 times by interviewers. Interview was conducted via video conference (between BHP Australian office and campus at my business school). Questions were mostly about previous experience.

    Corporate Security/Investigations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Received a telephone call stating that they were with BHP Billiton in Houston Texas and that they didn't want to waste my time or theirs so she wanted to ask me a question. She asked my current salary. I gave her my current salary but made it clear that I would be willing to accept less if given the opportunity as my main interest was to work for a quality company like BHP. I later received an email stating that they decided not to consider me. No reason given although I was more than qualified for the position after working as a Special Agent/Federal Criminal Investigator for over15 years. I feel I was not considered due to my current salary and they ignored the offer to work for less.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Very long process. Took over 5 months from time of application to interview. Recruitment was very slow, no urgency at all. Interview was structured, with very typical questions regarding experience and behavior. Did not receive update from recruiter. Will not answer calls or emails to provide updates. It has been an additional 2 months and have heard nothing, despite repeated attempts to contact. Not sure if position was eliminated due to falling oil, but please have the courtesy to inform the candidates who go through the entire interview process instead of dropping out completely. Very unprofessional.
