    I applied in November. After application screening they invited me to the English test exam (grammar , writing and speaking skills). After passing English test I was invited to take an Ability test and after ability test they finally invited to 1:3 interview (HR advisor, geologist an geophysicist asking technical questions). It was my first technical interview experience and I'm glad that it was with BP. Interviewers were always smiling and asked questions clearly. After getting an offer I passed medical check-up and signed the contract.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP in October 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was mixture of behavioral and technical questions. Most of the question were asked to find if the personality fits with company culture. Since they have a rigorous training program for the entry level staff they just want to check if the candidate has the basic technical competencies. That's why getting through the first interview is crucial.
