I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX).
The people who interviewed me are very friendly. They asked behavioral questions as well as some technical questions. They sometimes began to keep notes as you were answering them --- don't need to worry if they do that.
