    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    All situation based for this role when you come from an outside organization. Be prepared for the interview to come off very cold. Ask questions to open it up- they want to see that you are engaged.

    Something to note is that you will need to take a drug test (a hair test) that is non-negotiable.

      What is a time that you had to make an unpopular decision, but you still felt like it was the right thing to do? What was that decision.   1 Answer

    Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Typical behavior based questions that have been asked over and over. You might not get an opportunity to demonstrate your technical knowledge. I left with the impression that team leaders are not expected to know their area just how to talk to upper management.

    Maintenance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BP.

    Interview

    5 person panel on the phone after speaking with a recruiter on via email. 5 people on the phone isn't a good way to speak with strangers and is confusing for the candidate. One of the interviewers chose to grill me about hypothetical solutions for fixing mechanical issues... My experience has been managing mechanics to solve problems and create strategic plans... Not turn wrenches and fix pumps. This was clear on the my resume and the questions seemed very low level for the role.

    Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Whiting, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BP (Whiting, IN) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews on the same day. 1st one was easy they ask you 5 behavior based questions. 2nd interview was the same thing. Just 5 behavior based questions. I found it strange though that no one asked me about my resume. The 3rd interview is a work demo. You get placed with 4 of you. It was easy but I got stuck in a group with one person that knew what he was doing and 2 people that had no idea, nor did they have any refinery experience. Over 1000 ppl applied and they interviewed 78 ppl and how these 2 got an interview I have no idea. I think it’s really sad though that your future job can be put on the line because of other ppl.
