    The interview process went really well, it was definitely nice of them to take us out to pre interview dinner. Everyone I met was really cool and the interview rounds were survivable. There was a technical round and a group case round. They definitely emphasized their values so focus on those.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BP (Urbana, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I got the first round on-campus interview, and trading group manager give me an interview. Questions are cliche, but you definitely need to do your homework. There are four parts of the interview: Competence, motivation, and ethic (There should be one more, but I forgot sorry guys)
    By the way, before the interview, BP also hold a preinterview dinner. All interviewer join the dinner, so I sat on the same table with my interviewer. It is a good chance to know the personality of your interviewer and other candidates.
