    Commercial IST Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    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

    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.

    Finance Interview

    Interview Details

    Telephone interview asked for many examples of Capacity, Achievements and Relationships, using examples from your daily life. It was a bit awkward in my case as the conversation didn't feel like it flowed so there were some awkward silences and also my phone cut off near the beginning which put me off too.

    There was a number of stages which had to be completed however BP was very efficient in the way that these were carried out. From receiving an invitation for online tests to receiving an offer only took two weeks. Overall I would say it was the best recruiting experience I have had thus far.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at BP in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a reply 2 weeks later asking for me to come in for an interview. I went in and spent maybe 30 mins filling out some paperwork and also received a small test paper. After this i had maybe a 10-15 minute interview/chat with the hiring manager where they asked me some basic questions + "what would i do if" stuff. They were very good with answering any questions i had and explained in lots of detail. After the interview i was told they'd get back to me that very afternoon, 2 hours later they phoned to offer me the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing overly difficult, asked the usual questions "Tell me about yourself?", "Why did you apply for this company?" also asked some questions regarding what i'd do in certain situations, For example a customer complains about a product, someone holds a gun up to you, a staff member doing something unsafe.   Answer Question
