    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at BP in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was incredibly subjective as it was through an online video recording. Hard to tell what they are looking for. I answered the questions clearly and honestly and within a few days my candidate zone profile was updated saying that I was no longer being considered.

    Upstream Chemical Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    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.

    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BP (Sacramento, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    BP has a lengthy and extensive process and make sure all your ducks are in a row before you proceed. Applied in April, had my first phone screening May. Very standard review of your resume and experience, some general behavioral questions. Was invited back to a 3 person panel interview in June. This was a much more detail behavioral interview using the STAR format. Format is critical to the success of your interview so make sure to touch on all the elements. The panel was comprised of a Senior Territory Manager, Business Unit Manager and Western Divisional Manager, all members asked questions and shared insight about themselves and experience. Very informative and good place to get notes for later interviews. Excellent team meeting experience. After some more waiting was invited back in July for a second panel interview, again with 3 team members. This included a 15-20 minute presentation on a company product trying to obtain company buy in. A few more behavioral questions and was told they would be getting back to me once decision was made. In August a offer came in and I accepted pending background and drug screening.

    Unfortunately I was not able to provide a w2 for a start up that I briefly worked for and the offer was rescinded. Overall the experience was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed everyone I met with and spoke to. I was looking forward to the role and wish it had gone differently. My biggest advice is be knowledgeable about your experience and in presenting it, remember STAR format, know the companies values and don't be afraid to be engaging with those you interview with.

    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.
