    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BP.

    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.

    Interview Details

    Cold-called and was invited to interview the next day. Overall, it was a very casual and quick process. Seeing as it was my first proper job, I told them more about my interests and hobbies. Also, giving any examples in which you had demonstrated a good work ethic/shown responsibility would be in your best interest.

    Human Resources Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BP.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a pleasant experience. First there was an elaborate application form, then a situational judgment test after which there were numerical and verbal ability tests. Next, I was invited to a telephone interview which was very friendly and constituted of the typical competency questions ('tell about a time you worked in a team' etc.). After the telephone interview, there was a technical interview on location. I was presented with two different cases and asked to think out-loud. One was more generally commercial and the other was HR-specific. Finally, there was a half-day assessment centre. This constituted of two group exercises and one individual case. The values of BP are very central to the entire process and they look for you to portray these in your answers.
