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 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.

Interview Question – If you were to start a drilling operation in a new country, what would be the problems you would be worried about/expect?   Answer Question
