    Training Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    HR reached out to me on a Tuesday was scheduled to have a face-to-face interview on Friday of the same week. Once I made it to the interview the atmosphere just seemed negative from the start. It was a two person panel interview with the hiring manager and one other person. The other person just seemed very dry and cold. The main issue I had with the interview was the line of questions. They put me through the standard situational based interview which I am use to, however the questions were extremely lengthy. One question would consist of a combination of 10 questions. There is no way one person is going to remember that many questions at one time. As I am listening to the questions I am trying to think of what I'm going to say and try to keep up with remembering even half of the questions that were asked of me. Even though they told me the questions would be lengthy and that I could stop at any point and ask to repeat the question, I just found it all to be way too much for the type of job they were hiring for. It would have been a better interview if they would have broken the questions down into multiple parts like most other interviewers do. That way a person would not feel overwhelmed and would not have to stop multiple times to ask to repeat the question over and over again. HR was quick to let me know that I was not selected which I appreciated. Wasn't thrilled with the environment and the negativity of the interview anyway so wasn't disappointed to not be selected.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke to them at the career fair and got an email about a virtual email about a week later. The interview consisted of videos of various BP employees asking questions and then a 30 second period before you have to start answering the question. In my opinion, the interview was badly structured and the questions were hard to answer when there was no real person receiving them on the other side.

    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.
