I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BP in September 2013.

Interview Details

Interviewed at job fair, heard back within 5 weeks. Everyone very helpful along the way and I felt that they were really interested in how the experience was for me. I think it definitely helped that I was referred by one of their previous interns and his supervisor. I did have to follow up to get information on my offer.
