I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP in March 2009.

Interview

The interview took about 1.30 hrs and was in two stages. The first stage was competency and capability interview while the second stage was technical interview. Under the technical a real life engineering problems/challenges was given and ask to provide a solution. Competency interview was more on personality,achievement and skills.

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BP in May 2009.

    Interview

    Applied online and then received a call scheduling a phone interview. Completed the phone interview (20 minutes) very simple, just what are your interests/experiences not hard at all. Received request for face to face interview and was flown out to Texas City for on-site interview. Day long event included several powerpoint presentations about BP benefits and culture, etc. Then a plant tour followed by a 45 minute personal interview and a 45 minute technical interview. The personal interview was exactly what you would expect with a strong focus on experiences within a team setting. Questions about a team meeting adversity, what did you do, a team succeeding what role did you play, etc. Technical interview was weird my question was you are in charge of building a pipeline from the ocean to a refinery 200 miles away and there is a mountain range in the way, what issues are involved here? Then you just talk them through the project and they observe your thought process and what issues you worry about and how you address them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in November 2009.

    Interview

    Great 1 on 1 interview with HR professional
    This was followed by a technical test, the engineer providing the technical test was extremely condescending, and not at all helpful. I think BP would be a great company to work for, great training program for graduates, but there are definitely a few people who are not representing the team well.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BP (Austin, TX) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Well, this was my first interview, as well as the interviewers first interview.... so it was kind of awkward. Started off with typical interview questions( tell me about yourself, best qualities, etc) and then they handed me a diagram of a heat transfer system and asked me to talk about it, very open ended.
