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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Challenging, Exciting, and Rewarding Experience.

BP covered all of the costs of relocation and housing. They had a really cool three day intern training experience where we learned more about the oil and gas industry and what is BP's long term strategy. Lots of lunch and learns with free lunch! I got to hear from a handful of executives who were offering career advice. All interns presented their summer projects at an event called TechnoFest and there were winners in three categories: Technical Excellence, Business Impact, Safety & Operational Risk.

Downers

There was nothing that I did not like.

Advice to Potential Interns

Learn as much as you can about the energy industry and BP's strategy. Know the business whether you're interning in upstream/downstream.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time you led a team through a difficult transition.

Advice to Management

None.

Was able to go offshore for a total of 12 days, on three seperate trips to get a better understanding of my project and to perform tasks that were valuable to the team. I was given a project that not only would move the team forward but also fine tuned my skills as a young engineer

Downers

Nothing comes to mind

Advice to Potential Interns

You will be doing real engineering work at BP that will help you better understand the oil and gas industry. BP gives interns full-time employee work, not 'busy work'. Very enriching and valuable experience

Sample Interview Questions

Bp has two parts to their interview process. Behavioral questions and technical questions. The behavioral are similar to most other companies. But the technical questions are unique in that they evaluate how a candidate thinks through a logic process to achieve a solution.

Advice to Management

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.

Definitely the work culture. Everyone I worked with was eager to meet me and provide me assistance in any way I could. I never really felt like the "intern." I felt like I was part of the company from day one.



It was also very challenging and an amazing learning experience.



From a social perspective, BP also did their very best to provide us with networking opportunities with the interns and fellow workers.

Downers

It may sound cliche, but nothing at all. The only thing that bothered me was waking up early to go to work, and even that wasn't bad since I enjoyed going to work.

Advice to Potential Interns

Come with an OPEN mind! It will be very intimidating at first, but you definitely need to push yourself and use BP's resources to your advantage. The company provides so many services and they will only help you if you choose to use them.

Advice to Management

Do not bring in as many interns if there are not as many open positions for full-time

Would You Recommend

Yes

The most organized, balanced, well compensated, and the real job experience with project that has real value to the company is priceless.
