    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied in August and completed first round of interviews in September. Got an offer for an on campus interview in October, they didn't notify me until a few days before. There are two parts to the 2nd round of interviews. The interviews are more situational and technical questions, so they were quite difficult.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me 3weeks after applying online. There was no initial screening process and made me wonder if this was a fake interview and had already someone in mind for the role. When i asked that question he replied and stated they were looking for an external candidate. However, i just noticed someone on LinkedIn who just started the role back in June. So, the recruiter lied and they hired internal. I was invited for an in person interview to meet the team and everyone was dry and serious. Another's flag this role was fake, the hiring mgr. was out 'sick' that day.

    There is an online interactive platform, implemented through the company's official website. Video's including interview questions were played, and the applicant get to answers recorded (including the visual) within limited time duration (generally 90 to 120 seconds per question), after a rather short break to get prepared (about 30 seconds). I was traveling at the moment, so the interview was actually through the smart phone, which turned out to work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Bartlett, IL).

    Mostly the manager telling tales to try to get me to work for him. There were no really difficult or nonstandard interview questions. Spend an hour with a book on job interview strategy and you will be more than ready for this.
    Have I met the 50 word minimum yet? How about now? How about now?

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email telling me I would have a phone interview in the coming days. Kind of short notice. I set up a time that worked for me. My interviewer called approximately 3-4 min after my scheduled time. He told me about himself and proceeded to ask me questions. He asked about 5 questions two of which I had prepared answers for which was great. In all, it lasted around 20 min. At the end, he asked if I had any questions. I hear back in about two weeks.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    To determine who would be laid off, the company developed a process that required each group member to prepare a self evaluation, have an evaluation conducted by 3 unknown peers, interview for your current position and be evaluated by your superiors. This was all smoke and mirrors to eliminate 25% of the staff which was heavily weighted with employees over 50 years old.
