    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BP (London, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    5 week delay from posting closing to even being told that I would be interviewed, a further week and a bit before a date was set.... interview itself was very structured: formal and formulaic. Having given these interviews at the company in the past, I know how strict the company policy is on what you can/can't say and the limitations on general chat: e.g. can't ask the interviewee what their journey was like or how their family is as it could be seen to be a bias against people who have longer commutes or any bias on the basis of D&I (diversity and inclusion: gender, sexual preference in particular) or those that have children (or are about to!).
