    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (Houston, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I met the BHP recruiters on campus during the fall career fair, I only gave them my resume. The following week I received an email from a recruiter with a link to apply to their position online. I applied and that same day I scheduled my interview. The first round consisted of 2, 45-minute interviews, behaviour based, and then a final over the phone interview (no behavior question). Mine was supposed to last 30 minutes but it only lasted 10. They got back to me about 2-3 weeks later with the offer.

    Interview

    I came in through a temp agency so the process is different from usual. They knew a lot about me already and trusted my ability based on their trust for the company. The interview was short, laid back and sweet

    Interview

    I interviewed with them on campus after the career fair. I really enjoyed the interview. I had two interviewers who were really conversational and seemed genuinely interested in my passions and what I had to say. We basically went through my resume for the first half and then they asked me a couple behavioral questions and it was one of my favorite interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at BHP Billiton (College Station, TX).

    Interview

    My interview process consisted of only a Skype interview which lasted probably 30 minutes. I interviewed with 2 people from the supply department. They were very nice and got back to me with my offer only 4 days after the interview. They asked mostly behavioral type questions and frequently referenced my resume. Just be yourself, know your resume well and be prepared to think on your feet a little bit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BHP Billiton.

    Interview

    STAR behavioural based interview. Asked 3-6 questions. The interview is difficult if you aren't prepared for a behavioral based interview. HR doesn't always inform you what kind of interview process you'll go through.

    When you are traveling to the interview, for some technical jobs, they will surprise you with a presentation requirement. You'll be required to put together a presentation and present it at your interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation when you found someone in the workplace that wasn't following safety protocol.   Answer Question
