Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in May 2016.

Interview

Went well but a bit slow. I would prefer to have been interviewed quickly and points made directly and cut short. I think if the company focused more on the development aspects and explained more clearly how the fourth is developed, that would be great. I think if they also found ways to separate themselves from other oil and gas companies, they would succeed more.

Interview Questions

    Interview

    It was a difficult interview with many exhibits displayed and a few open ended questions. I thought I did a good job but received little feedback. Hope to hear back soon.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Its a long process. In my case I was applying from the outside, so the vetting can be a little daunting. You could break down the whole thing in three phases:
    1. Phone interveiw with to confirm basic information. Very softball questions.
    2. Face to face interview with prospective team, panel of four people.
    3. Informal lunch gathering to meet additional prospective team members, lighthearted conversations.
    I felt that it was very good doing good research on the company. My approach was basic stuff; reading their history on their website, knowing who the CEO was, knowing about previous mergers and aquisitions... nothing fancy really. What made the difference (I think, I could be wrong) was to have a good set of questions to ask. I worked a lot on this, doing mind maps of topics relevant to the role, and managed to get very intelligent talking points into the table with the interview panel. I feel that without this, I would just have been your average interviee...

    Interview Questions

    • In my case I was moving frm a manager to an analyst role, so the topic about a "step down" was brought forward. Being the elephant in the room, I had my elevator pitch ready... be ready for yours (we all have one.)
      Some technical questions were raised, both on the panel and the lunch... but very consistent with the role, so answers and confirmations abounded.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It took aproximately one month from job application to interview, and an additional 45 days from interview to offer. Negotiation was fairly simple, almost haggle free. Background check was a nightmare, my advice is to have have a list of contacts from previous roles ready (email, phone, address), so they can fill in the blanks. Academic records are also needed, so have them handy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL) in June 2008.

    Interview

    it was very interesting and OVERLY thorough. , to the point that I couldn't believe that ANY decisions were made. Four hours I walked out of the building and was confused as to which direction I was facing. Of course I do believe that this is an exception to how things normally are

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (London, England (UK)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Three stage interview process: the first one was a group assessment centre followed by a short one-one-one with HR, the next with the analyst team, and the final a full panel interview with senior members of the company, by far the most nerve-wracking.
