    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Process included various typical technical questions as well as your standard, "Tell me a time when" fillers. Interview staff was friendly but obviously had been through the process many times before and cut to the chase. Overall the interview process was good, but the compensation + relocation requirements left me unable to accept the position

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Initial one on one interview, since I was already living within city. Didn't really give me much attention. Interviewer talked more about what he thought. Guy was totally absorbed by himself. No process to interview, pretty poor interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at BP (London, England (UK)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Online application, numerical test and verbal reasoning test, phone interview, face to face interview at the business park and assessment centre. The process took about 3 months. The face to face interview involves classic questions like why BP, why this role and about the projects I was involved in. Then there were case studies to do with project management.

    Interview Questions

    • Case study questions to do with how to manage projects when there is an unexpected event e.g. the neighbours are unhappy with the drilling site due to the noise it creates, what can you do? or if there is not enough production facility what do you?   Answer Question
