How to function on a team, and why a team is your best asset
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoyed and appreciated working on a project that was both meaningful and that will provide application to real world problems. Also, I loved the opportunity to meet people with a ton of experience and industry insight that were fully willing to give insight as a moments notice.


Downers

I missed having my family with me, but that's the nature of internships, isn't it? Also, the intern get-together's were nice, but somewhat immature, as most interns were much younger.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great company with great benefits, people, training, and culture. If an offer comes your way from BP, it would be a drastically bad idea to turn it down. Opportunities like the ones found at BP are a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing.


Advice to Management

The midterm reviews should be given a generic schedule and outline company-wide (if possible). Many interns had different experiences with midterms--mine was wonderful, but others mentioned a large uncertainty factor in planning.

Fully Vested in Intern Growth and Development
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning, culture, community, benefits and pay


Downers

Politics and red tape. Needs WAY more flexibility and better communication between HR, USUR, IST, and other departments


Advice to Potential Interns

The internship is challenging, but so worth it. It becomes what you make it.


Advice to Management

Needs WAY more flexibility. Too much red tape. Almost patronizing.

At BP I learned where I wanted to be.
Anchorage, AK | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of my BP internship were: exposure to the working conditions on the North Slope, background on the oil and gas industry, mentoring from successful professionals, support from my project team, and the opportunity to work in the beautiful state of Alaska.


Downers

Working with and getting to know all of the very talented interns was difficult knowing not everyone would be getting a job offer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Aggressively pursue an internship with BP. You will be well paid and work on real projects.


Sample Interview Questions

1) Describe an instance in the work place where you were aware of someone doing something wrong or unsafe? How did you respond to it?



2) What components would be necessary in the design of an electrical system for an off shore oil platform in the North Sea?


Advice to Management

Continue to send engaging staff to do college requirement. Five minutes of personal conversation with a BP representative allowed me to open up about my background and experience and not just talk about my engineering program....as a result I will now be working fro BP.

Yes

A valuable career development experience, not just a summer job
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone was very helpful and willing to work with me whenever I needed help. The opportunities to go see manufacturing facilities, and and work on an offshore rig were very educational and valuable experience.


Downers

With all of the interns that the company had, there was sometimes a lack of communication when trying to involve all of the interns in something.


Advice to Potential Interns

This company is absolutely great to work for and they don't treat you like a paper pusher intern, but like an employee that they are there to teach and to help. The internship offered by BP is a top notch job that takes very good care of you both financially and personally.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Amazing Experience in Alaska, Not Eaten By Polar Bears
Anchorage, AK | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Work Environment/People

Pay

Projects given to the interns were meaningful and were likely to be used after the summer ended.


Downers

Holding an office-based position doesn't allow for a ton of exercise during the day.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid to ask questions and learn as much as possible about BP. As an employer, BP is a great choice.


Sample Interview Questions

A heat exchanger installed just last year is not functioning properly. Please explain the modes of heat transfer occurring and describe what might be causing the exchanger to malfunction.


Advice to Management

Training for interns would be great upfront, just to get a better idea of the acronyms and data gathering systems would really give our projects a jump-start and interns could excel much more quickly.


Would You Recommend

Yes

"Best Internship Ever"
Anchorage, AK | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The aspect of learning the job with many opportunities to understand the scope of work and how it can impacts the economy of both the company and community.


Downers

Not sure, it was amazing.


Advice to Potential Interns

Look for opportunities in different avenues. Don't be afraid to ask questions and learn.


Sample Interview Questions

How does air flow work?


Advice to Management

Not sure. Make a scavenger hunt of questions so potential interns/employees can ask employees who work there certain questions that help them interact with more individuals.


Would You Recommend

Yes
