Assistant Manager, Human Resources Interview

Anonymous Employee
Mumbai (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Bharat Petroleum in April 2011.

Interview Details – It was campus selection process. There was a group discussion. The candidates who cleared the GD round had to undergo an interview. There were four people in the panel, including one of the Directors. Most of the questions were personal - about family, interests, personality, etc. A few easy questions on HR areas. There was a lot of focus on industrial relations. BPCL looks for commitment loving conformists.

Interview Question – None, I thought it was a cakewalk. Of course, I had to lie and pretend being someone I was not.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

Management Trainee Interview

Interview Details – GD+Interview. The GD consisted of general current affairs topics, with 10 students in a GD. Our topic was "Effect of FDI in retail, impact and suggestions". It was moderated a bit. The panel interfered to inform us when we were going in the wrong direction. They also asked at the end of the interview, to add anything anyone wanted say. No summary from anyone at the end. Heavy weightage given to grades and past academics.
