    BP IST Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BP.

    Interview Details

    Applied via online site and had a campus interview. Interview was 90 minutes - 45 minutes behavioral/fit, 45 minutes of a non-technical case study. The questions were very repetitive and asked repeatedly with minimal changes in the wording. Case wasn't technical which made it hard to determine whether or not the answer was correct.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BP.

    Interview Details

    Uses behavioral interviewing questions and techniques. You'd better be prepared because the hiring decision is made based on the points you make whilst answering the questions. It's subjective - yes, but that's the process. Suggest you brush up on the typical behavioral type questions you'll find on the web or in one of the popular interviewing books.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us about a time when you had to make a unpopular decision? What was the situation and what was the decision? How did you manage the team's reaction and convince them that it was the right thing to do?   View Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at BP.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my campus career management center. I was chosen for an interview and then invited for dinner to talk to recruiters the day before the interview. There were two 45 minute parts to the interview. The first part of the interview just asked about my experiences (it was a lot of "tell me about a time" questions). The second part was the technical portion of the interview which was way easier than I expected. The process took 5 weeks.

    Commercial IST Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BP in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Right after the psychometric tests, I was invited for first round telephone interviews which are competency based. I booked the session which was a month away for more preparation, then they said they'd get back to me in a month which makes the process even longer. They said it was just a conversation, but they do some SERIOUS interrogating - you have been warned. Not the easiest of applications if I must admit.

    Process Engineer (12 Months Placement) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunbury, England (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BP in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was fast-tracked to the technical interview (as I have already done the competency based interview last year). Interviewer was really nice and helpful, especially when I struggled with some of the technical questions which I have not learned in class. The technical interview was divided into two scenarios. In each scenarios there will be many questions with regards to one topic. I believe I did well on the first scenario but failed at the second scenario. Nevertheless, it was a good interview experience as the interviewer was really friendly.
