    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at BP in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter called me to do a pre-screen interview; hiring manager did a phone interview with me to explain the position requirements and duties; recruiting coordinator contacted me to schedule a face to face interview with a group panel. I interviewed with a group panel of 3 BP HR employees. Completed the interview. Received a verbal offer from the hiring manager offering me the job, received an offer package from the recruiter about 3 days later (was in a foreign country at the time). Worst part of the process is the background screen, the vendor who does this didn't have a fax machine that could accept international faxes, it took another 10 days resolve this matter. Orientation is elaborate and convoluted, but they are working on updating that with a new program Discover BP which is really quite good.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a few situational questions, but nothing I would classify as difficult or unexpected. HR is where difficult and unexpected live and play.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Simple and transparent. A phone call between the recruiter and myself, and the hiring manager and myself.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at BP in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from the hiring manager, she conducted a pre-screen interview, discussing the position and the situation. Based on my interest and responses to her questions, she elected to have me come in for a face-to-face interview, they gave me pre-read materials for the interview session and communicated how things would go down, I was interviewed by a panel of 3 managers, they did behavioral interviewing based on the job requirements, it was very clear and concise. Everyone was very engaging and professional. After that panel discussion, I had to do a face-to-face meeting with a more senior HR director, she was very gracious and laid back, explaining what was going on in the office regarding restructuring and realignment activities. All in all, it was really a positive experience.

    Negotiation Details
    Be honest about what you are making and what you want, their background check is intense, they ask for W-2s and paystubs, so don't lie. They aren't going to short-change you.
