    Consulting Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX (US)).

    Interview

    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.

    Petroleum Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in College Station, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (College Station, TX (US)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    It is long and informative, with both behavior and technical questions. It was a 75-minute interview as the first round, and the 2nd round was making a presentation about my research project. The first interview is 1-1 and the second interview is 1-2. I think the environment is friendly and relaxing, and the questions are pre-designed.

    Petrophysicist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in College Station, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BP (College Station, TX (US)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It was an on-campus recruitment. I met with the recruiters at the university's career fair. I also applied on the company's career website. I received notification for an on-campus interview in about a week. The interview itself was two part- the first part was behavioral, and the second part was technical. I received an offer within about 3 weeks of the campus interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions were centered around the company core values- Safety, Respect, Excellence, One Team, and Courage. I was indirectly asked to describe scenarios where I demonstrated these values.
      Technical questions included interpretation of well logs (mainly to test basic understanding of general petrophysics concepts), and some discussions on information contained in my resume.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Petrophysicist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BP (Houston, TX (US)) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I got first round through the University career website for the position of Petrophysicist/Well Log Analyst. I think their first round selection is completely random, as many of my friends with same profile did not get the interview call, while a few others (highly unfit for the position) got the call.

    Well-Logging, I am good at it, so I analyzed the well-log given to me in the first round really well. The interviewer a Geologist asked me a lot of other clichéd-interview questions and I gave her clichéd answers.

    I got a second round call. On-site interview, where I presented my research work (which is entirely unrelated to Petrophysics - as i said my first round selection i think was random). Also I was asked to comment on a geological formation (I had only one geology field trip in my masters).

    The interviewer (a geologist) said, he thinks I did very well in geological interpretation considering my background in Geology. Another interviewer I think was not so impressed.

    Finally after making me wait for two months, they sent me a standard rejection letter. I was extremely surprised as I had thought I did well.

    A suggestion to International students pursuing Geology-Petrophysics-Geophysics, DO APPLY FOR PETROPHYSICIST POSITION in the future in BP, as they are always running short of Petrophysicist.

    As I got to know from other friends, pay is awesome, near around 100,000 dollars. If you like well-logging and seismic interpretation, this is the place to be in.

    Associate Director Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BP (Chicago, IL (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Behavioral based interview. Interview team did not stray from a strict script of questions. Sticking to that format did not allow for personal interaction. Interview felt very clinical and lacked warmth.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you worked on a team and members of the team had different opinions about the direction of the project.   Answer Question

    Channel Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wayne, NJ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BP (Bartlett, IL (US)).

    Interview

    Mostly the manager telling tales to try to get me to work for him. There were no really difficult or nonstandard interview questions. Spend an hour with a book on job interview strategy and you will be more than ready for this.
    Have I met the 50 word minimum yet? How about now? How about now?
