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

A Great and Fun Summer Opportunity to Gain Valuable Work Experience as a Chemical Engineer

The projects that I got to work on actually had an importance in the refinery. I also enjoyed the work schedule of four ten hour shifts because the long weekends were a great opportunity to explore the area around the refinery.

Downers

The wait for the phone call to hear about a full time offer is taking longer than desired.

Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great opportunity and a great place to start a career in chemical engineering. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn as much as you can from the engineers around you.

Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Everyone was very open to getting to know you and my managers assigned me real work that was needed in the business. I was impressed with how much they trusted me to deliver on my assignments and not micromanage the projects. We were also given apartments in downtown Chicago to live in during our summer internships. They were really nice and gave us more opportunities to get to know the other interns at BP outside of the office.

Downers

I wished that there were more structured intern events throughout the summer. There were a couple, but I think it would have been a good way to get to know interns that I didn't work with often.

Advice to Potential Interns

I enjoyed BP as an employer because it gives you a lot of room to create your own career. The full-time program lets you move around to different areas of the business for one year rotations to see what is most interesting to you. Since I am not 100% sure what is the best fit for me, I like that I get to test out different roles to get a better idea of where I should go. If you know exactly what you want to do, I am not sure that I would recommend this program. However, if you are like me and don't have an exact idea of the specific thing you would like to do, then I think this is an unparalleled opportunity.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Excellent work experience, amazing learning opportunity, and great people all while enjoying Chicago in the summertime!
