    Maintenance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BP.

    Interview Details

    Submitted CV online, recruiter contacted me and invited for an interview. Interview was spilt into two parts, technical and behavioural. Pleasant interview with set questions, I was not put under real pressure but the interviewers would press for expansion of my answers. Only concern was the timeframe from Interview confirmation until interview outcome......10 weeks.....nerves we're getting shredded.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you convince senior managers that your idea will improve the business, even if at the outset they 100% disagree with the proposal.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    To be fair BP took my current salary/benefit status into consideration, so negotiation phase was comprehensive and quick.

    Interview Details

    They are nice. The interview is as long as 120 minute. They will follow a question sheet, and ask you behavior questions and technical questions. For geologists, seismic interpretation is necessary here. There is no answer for your interpretation.

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BP.

    Interview Details

    Interview was heavy on behavioral/situational scenarios. remember to answer in the 'STAR' format (requiter should fill you in on this). I forgot the acronym, but it's 'What was the issue, what did you do, how did you do it, and what were the results'. Answer every question that way.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing quantitative. There was one question regarding exposure to physical crude inventory; i think it went, "i'm long crude, what am I exposed to and how can i hedge"   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BP.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me to interview with them.

    The hiring manager was definitely not interested in me since I did not have the experience or pedigree he was looking for. Not sure why they brought me in for an interview.

    Granted I had food poisoning the morning of the interview so maybe it was me?

    Essentially it was a waste of time.

    Interview Details

    Assessment Centre was really unorganised, all commerce students were assessed under the same standard. And the technical questions were also marketing based which were a bit unfair to other candidates in different streams.

    BP IST Interview

    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.

    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.
