    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BP (Warrenville, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    the process took three to four weeks since I submitted my online application , got initial application review email , then got welcome letter moving forward to light phone interview , forward to formal interview , it was all about behavioral questions .. but the hiring manager was decided who she will hire ( Network I guess ) thats why she didn't pay attention to my interview and being rude even though I'm an MBA finance certificate holder .. her assistant was handling the interview .

    Interview Questions

    • it was all about behavioral attitude and how you act against problems at work .. which makes me wonder that anyone can tell lies and lies and make himself a hero to get a chance for this job !!   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BP (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email telling me I would have a phone interview in the coming days. Kind of short notice. I set up a time that worked for me. My interviewer called approximately 3-4 min after my scheduled time. He told me about himself and proceeded to ask me questions. He asked about 5 questions two of which I had prepared answers for which was great. In all, it lasted around 20 min. At the end, he asked if I had any questions. I hear back in about two weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at BP (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    2 interviews to start with, 1 competency based, pretty straight forward if you've practiced your answers and 1 case study. Case study is led by an employee from the trading floor who will try and direct you in case you are not answering right. Overall a very good experience. Everything is very well organised and clear.
    Second and Final round is long (a whole day) and involves various games and simulations + case studies. Some of the other ones will try and trick you, but that's expected. Just keep your cool

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    60 minute interview with panel, including HR, incumbent, & Manager. Standard behavioral questions, team focus, & process improvement focused. Very few technical questions. It's basically make it or break it in 4-5 questions. I was an internal candidate yet I had to apply online just like other folks.. i believe the position was also posted externally so there may have been others who applied from outside the company.

    They reviewed my resume and qualifications against the requirements of the job.. then chose me for the interview. I had a short conversation with HR prior to the real 60 minute interview.

    Applied though my school and then got an in person interview at the career center at my school.
    The in person interview was conducted by two Bp employees. One was HR and the other one worked on the trade floor. They were pleasant and throughly explained the technical questions. I got one question wrong and then they went through it with me and explained why my answer was wrong.
