I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BP.

Interview Details – The process was through the career center. The one interview took about 1:30 minutes. 45 Behavioral question and 45 on technical part. Technical part made me nervous, it was a very general problem but interviewer was helpful and allowed to go back and make additions to the problem solving. You don't require calculator or anything, in my case didn't even calculate anything just stated how I would solve the problem, what information I would need (fluid properties, the equipment geometry and dimensions, etc). I would say medium-high difficulty just because the technical part is so broad.

Interview Question – They just showed me a heat exchanger, told me it didn't work to specifications and tell them what could be wrong. What would I need to estimate if it was wrong and what actions I could take to change them   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I haven't made my mind yet but it I will definitely consider this opportunity as one of my top priorities.

Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BP in September 2012.

Interview Details – I was emailed that I needed to schedule an interview. I was then invited to a dinner to mingle with other prospect interns and current employees. We were told about the company and what an internship looks like. I thought it was a very good event to hold before the interviews. The interviews took place the following two days after the dinner and consisted of a 45 minute behavioral portion and 45 minute technical portion. The timeline was 3 weeks to hear a decision while some heard earlier that they did not get it. I was told a day before the 3 weeks was up that I did not get an offer.

Interview Question – Outside of engineering classes and/or coursework. When have you used your engineering prowess to solve a problem or overcome an obstacle?   View Answer

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

Interview Details – Two phone interviews, one traditional and one job-specific. Each phone interview lasted around thirty minutes (actual interview time). Interviewers didn't jump right into the interview, but asked general questions to try to get to know the candidate better, ask how school was going, found common connections, etc. Interview was not stressful, but they asked common tough questions and asked about interest in oil and gas industry, and asked how candidate would fit with company values

Interview Question – Question about company values   Answer Question
