    Operations Support Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BP (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    2 step. Phone call and on site. Phone call interview was fairly brief. On site, the interview steered towards industry terms and standards though the job was open for fresh grad and i was a fresh grad. Answered as best as i could but could visibly sense that the interviewer would rather have someone experienced applying for the job.

    At end of interview, thanked them for the opportunity and mentioned would rather try other opportunities.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview tone wasn't that great. Office seemed to have decided to centralised the process under the hiring manager but from interview tone sensed the manager didn't want the additional responsibilities. Someone need to come in and set new standards and system (Remember it was open to fresh grad) and it seemed manager wasn't too supportive.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    The phone-based competency interview is generally carried out by one or two members of the HR team, and is focused around previous experience and achievements. The interview reportedly lasts around 45 minutes, and is fairly relaxed and discussion-based rather than formal and structured. Previous questions have included:

    Why do you want to work for BP?
    Which other companies have you applied to?
    What goals have you set for yourself and achieved?
    Describe your role in a team project that you have been involved in.
