Learning the Values and Culture of BP

4.9 of 5 stars

Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Company culture, training opportunities, strong values, beautiful campus, competitive compensation

Downers

Big company so a little less personable outside of your team, often takes a long time to get something done when other stakeholders involved

Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to work in a team environment, one of the core values is 'One Team' and that is certainly necessary to get things done in this organization. Also I would recommend always being honest and admitting if you don't know the answer to a question, they would rather you have the courage to admit it rather than making stuff up.

Would You Recommend

Yes

BP internship: real work, real impact

5.0 of 5 stars

Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The corporate culture makes it very easy to work at BP. Also, the projects are challenging and important to the company. Needless to say the pay is great as well.

Downers

The internship was very structured, and put too much pressure on the end result verses the journey of getting to that point.

Advice to Potential Interns

When you intern at BP they really consider you as a full time hire, so I suggest not interning there unless you seriously feel BP could be somewhere you want to work for a career.

Sample Interview Questions

Why do you want to work in oil& gas?

Advice to Management

Have a less rigid challenge (development) program. Focus more on the new employees and less on checking the "boxes" the program requires.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Challenging, Exciting, and Rewarding Experience.

Anchorage, AK | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Exploring mechanical engineering responsibilities in the oil and gas industry

4.9 of 5 stars

Houston, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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

Nothing comes to mind
