Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

Interview

I applied online when I found out about the position via my University and I was offered an in person interview (or phone/stream) right after the application submission process closed and had the interview at their American HQ approximately a week later. The questions were more about getting to know the person rather than knowledge or "situational" questions but some of those two categories were asked as well. One area I was pleasantly surprised by was the panel's knowledge about me and my resume. They were also very friendly. Have experience before applying (even if it's not in the energy sector) and be ready to explain how that will help and/or hurt you if working at BP. Overall duration was approximately thirty minutes.

    Interview

    Interview is half behavioral and half technical assessment. They will assess your academic record, previous experiences, and interview in the consideration. The time to respond takes a while, as the company waits until they have completed interviews for all possible candidates.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BP.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Reasons for Declining

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

First preference candidates typically get called back less than a week later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BP.

    Interview

    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
