    Commodity Risk Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BP.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was simply a conversation about my resume, past experience, and details of the role. About a week later I was Invited to an in-person interview. There was a group of 5 people who each asked a situational question about how I would handle certain situations. Questions were not at all technical and more situational questions. They were mainly questions regarding leadership and how you work in groups. I thought the interview went well but sometimes those questions can be difficult to answer on the spot. I heard back a week later that I did not get the job offer through an email from the recruitment automated email.

    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.

    Financial Control Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me 3weeks after applying online. There was no initial screening process and made me wonder if this was a fake interview and had already someone in mind for the role. When i asked that question he replied and stated they were looking for an external candidate. However, i just noticed someone on LinkedIn who just started the role back in June. So, the recruiter lied and they hired internal. I was invited for an in person interview to meet the team and everyone was dry and serious. Another's flag this role was fake, the hiring mgr. was out 'sick' that day.
