My internship experience with BP is second to none. Here, safety is priority, team work is outstanding and everyone looks after each other.

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

A valuable career development experience, not just a summer job

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.

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

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Fun, good leaning experiance, opportunity to meet new people who bcome my good friends.

Time was little short for the amount of work, what I would have expected.

Advice to Potential Interns

Great place to work. Understand the company culture, and find if you like the company good enough to work for. Meet poeple when you are at intrenship.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A terrific learning experience, a unique opportunity to grow professionally and choose the right career path.

I cannot think of something I did not like or I liked least about the internship
