    BP Discovery Day Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Immediately received email to do virtual HireVue interview. I assume everyone automatically gets the interview. You do the online interview, which consists of two recorded answers and one short essay. Everything is timed and you only have one chance at it. After that, it took a little over a month for them to get back to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BP.

    Interview

    There were two interviews first was a one on one interview. Once I passed that there was a second on-site interview and this was with a panel. Easy going and made you feel comfortable but still wanted to know if you were a good fit for the position. Probably the best interview experience I've had so far.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Went well but a bit slow. I would prefer to have been interviewed quickly and points made directly and cut short. I think if the company focused more on the development aspects and explained more clearly how the fourth is developed, that would be great. I think if they also found ways to separate themselves from other oil and gas companies, they would succeed more.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on the site(transcriptions etc.), 20 min later I received email about the next step. I had to complete Situational Judgement Questionnaire-30 questions, different situations and I had to choose what is most likely to do and less likely. 30 min later I got invitation for video interview and should do it in the next 3 days. About the interview- Firefox seems to dot work with the software. I had time to practice and to check mic and camera. Than the questions:
    1. Say your name, University and your majors?
    2.How and why you choose your majors?
    3. Why O&G industry and why BP?
    4. What you will bring to BP and what you hope to get, long term plans.
    Now I must wait for the next step.

    Good luck to all of you!

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Atlanta, GA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was an online interview in which the computer used a software like Skype to interview you, however it was not a live interviewer, but something like a youtube video that showed you what the question was, in doing so technically you should be less nervous, however I found it not really that much more useful, aside from the huge benefit of being able to interview at your convenience.

    Channel Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BP (Wayne, NJ) in March 2016.

    Interview

    While typical of HR-led interviews, it was a bit odd to have an interview that simply followed a checklist instead of encouraging a free-flowing discussion to see how experience can benefit company. Very little focus on what company can offer prospective employee. Do not seem open to different thinking. While not an awful interview experience, not very welcoming either. Terrible communications.
