Interview Details – I applied through school website as well as BP website. Got a face to face interview on campus. I don't want to sound mean but I felt the person who interviewed me was unprofessional and unwelcoming. I have had a few interviews with this company and had seen extremely nice and open minded recruiters who really is there to help you and mean ones such as this interviewer who knows nothing about my background, and repetitively gets my previous company's name wrong even after I told him twice who I used to work for...Not to mention he threw my papers on the side in a very rude way right after he finished asking questions. Overall very negative experience this year.

Interview Details – BP came to my college campus for a career fair and conducted interviews following the career fair. The interview starts off with personal questions that range from what you are most proud of to give an example of when you set your sights to high or failed at something. The interview was really straight forward and laid back. The second half of the interview consisted of a technical question to see how well you could think on your feet. My question involved a pipeline that went from a location inland to offshore, that had to travel over a mountain and into a valley.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question for me was having to apply equations to the technical question. BP asked me if I knew any equations for what was happening inside the pipeline. Answer Question
