    I interviewed through college or university. 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 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

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at BP in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    On-campus interview that consisted of behavioral and case interviews. The behavioral was just like any other, however it was odd that the interviewer took a 10 minute call 2 minutes into the interview. The case interview asked questions directly about the petroleum business.
