Very Difficult Interview

Drilling Engineer Interview

Drilling Engineer
Golden, CO

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at BP in January 2010.

Interview Details – This was a very technical interview process that they have completely gone away from because it did not provide the proper level of assessment of the candidate. The individuals performing the interview were the same people that I ended up working with and were very pleasant to interview with and the interview process did not seem too overwhelming.

Interview Question – Solving a technical problem.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Increased base due to mistake in the offering process.

Drilling Engineer Interview

Drilling Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through other source and interviewed at BP.

Interview Details – I was contacted to interview with BP through the SWE conference website, and had an initial 75 minute interview when at the conference. The recruiter was nice and patient with me if I paused to think before answering questions. The interview consisted of a behavioral portion and a technical portion, with the technical portion being a simple scenario in which I was asked to describe how to obtain certain information, or what would change as a result of an external stimulus. Honestly I felt like it was more a test to see how well I though on my feet. Two weeks later I got a call inviting me to an onsite interview, which was very similar in format. After the interview I got a tour of the campus, and lunch in the cafeteria. One thing I noticed was that there were a lot of women, and that there were many Spanish speakers- both of which I think are positive aspects because they speak of a diverse and multicultural environment. A few days later I got a call offering me the position.

Interview Question – None. Questions are there to test your response under pressure, and are relatively simple.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, but the offer was good to begin with.
