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.

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.

Exciting, challenging, and rewarding experience with BP Reservoir Engineering Team
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone I worked with was always more than willing to put what they were doing on hold and work with me on my project and answer my questions. Very laid back yet productive and friendly atmosphere in which I loved working in. The internship itself was very well structured and I was given a great project to work on, and my project was a real world project not something just pulled off the shelf for an intern to do.


Downers

I was put into a role that had no prior experience for even though I did learn how to do my job eventually. I was forced to spend a lot of time getting up to speed rather than working on the project. Seated far away from my team and didn't get to interact with them much.


Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard, never be afraid to ask questions, and the only thing limiting you at BP is yourself


Sample Interview Questions

Given a well diagram with bottom hole and surface equipment pressures and asked "when will well stop flowing on its own?"

Tell me about a time when you showed leadership


Advice to Management

Better incorporation of Interns within teams. (This may be a specific case for me because I was told it was not a widespread issue) the Lunch and Learns were awesome and I greatly enjoyed all of the intern activities.

A fruitful summer experience in the industry
Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working with talented people and state of the art computing facilities


Downers

Interns have less communicating opportunities (with each other) compared with previous experience


Advice to Potential Interns

Great place to conduct research activities; a wonderful opportunity to learn old things as well as explore new things.


Sample Interview Questions

What is your thesis topic and do you want to work on a project related to the topic?


Advice to Management

Space of several group activities seem to be quite limited; other than that it has been a great experience


Would You Recommend

Yes
