Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BP.

Interview Details

BP has a career fair in my university. I had an on-campus interview for one and half hours. Most of them are behavior questions. After two weeks, I was invited for the on-site interview. May questions were repeated by different interviewers such as challenge, safety, and leadership. They did not ask any case study questions. The presentation is about 45 minutes and people asked about technical questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at BP in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Basic interview questions and resume run through. Favorite class, least favorite class, study abroad experience and language abilities. Later, a behavioral run through about working in groups, ethical dilemmas. Finally, a skills-based question about fluid dynamics and building a pipeline to a reservoir at the coast.

    The interviewer was very nice at first but then tried to fluster me during the skills interview. Be ready for them to be confrontational.

    Interview Questions
    • Take about how to build and design a pipeline from the mountains to the coast in california, including pumps, flow meters, reservoirs, etc.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at BP in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    There were general questions at the beginning, such as "Tell me about yourself?" and it was quite conversational for the first 15 minutes. Then we moved on to behavioral questions and final there was a technical component where I had to analyze a chemical engineering related problem. The whole interview process lasted a while, about an hour and 10 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at BP in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Completed a long online form with lots of skills based questions, such as "Write about a time when you used such and such a skill"... Then was invited for a day of interviews - one interview was more general about interests and skills, one interview was technical so used my engineering knowledge.

    • Engineering related technical questions were difficult - I didn't know much about the oil industry.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None - just accepted the position of a summer internship
