    Reservoir Engineer Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BP in September 2013.

    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 Questions
    • BP interview always follow their set routine. Half behavioral and half technical. Both are not bad. Questions such as: why are you interested in BP and why do you want to be a reservoir engineer should be expected.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BP in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's on campus recruiting in early September. I received an interview about a week later. There was a company dinner the night before that helped the candidates understand more about the company culture. The interviewers were all nice and helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was two part. The behavioral section was pretty predictable

      -A time you thought on our feet
      -A time you received good advice from a mentor

      The technical section was more difficult than I had expected and asked the candidates to do a times assignment of moving gas in and out of storage to meet supply and demand and the instructions were a little confusing.
        Answer Question

    Interviewed at job fair, heard back within 5 weeks. Everyone very helpful along the way and I felt that they were really interested in how the experience was for me.
