    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at BP in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Travel arrangements were great, they insisted to me to fly even with my willingness to drive. There were two panel interviews, one technical and one behavioral. The technical interview started with an explanation of BP, the organizational structure of the department and how the position fitted in the structure. I was asked to give an example on every answer and they keep drilling on my answers to a great detail. The second interview was a behavioral case questions; also they require examples in every answer. This interview process was one of the toughest one that I had ever encountered although they were very respectful.

    • I had an unimpressive undergrad GPA thanks to my first couple years of college. Halfway through the interview, the lead interviewer dropped his scripted questions on the table in exasperation. He then asked me why I was even there with such a lousy GPA considering that most of my peers were 4.0 students. He followed up by grilling me on each class on my transcript in which I received a grade lower than a B.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BP in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview itself was divided into three separate sessions. First, being a telephone based interview which existed for approximately 15 minutes. The telephone interview was done by the hiring managers based in UK. If you get through the telephone interview, they will personally fly down to your region for a more formal interview process with you. In my case, for the telephone based interview, I was asked the following question: "What do you know about IT Service Management?" That's all they ever said on the phone...from then on you will be expected to tell them everything you know about service management in 15 minutes. They will not interrupt or say anything in between. Once they have heard enough, they will tell you the time is up and will inform that if everything went well, we'll hear from them again within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. What do you know about IT Service Management and why should we hire you?
      2. Tell me a situation where you identified a risk within the operations and what you did about it?
