BP Australia Reviews
Reviews by BP Australia graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar3.8GradAustralia surveyed 16 graduates working at BP Australia . Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 16 responses.
- Flexibility and work-life balance Support, you feel like a member of the team Variety in work content and the opportunity to develop and be challenged
- Exciting industry to be in
- Culture - everyone is very friendly and supportive (personally and professionally).
- Some nice people here
- Flexibility, very friendly atmosphere
- Some cultural aspects, such as safety attitudes
- Minimal transparency on opportunities being available
- Depending on what team you are in you may be required to do a significant amount of work that does not utilise your tertiary level of education (typical of teams that do not have well established roles for graduates). I do understand though that someone has to do this work and a graduate is the most likely candidate...but it should not dominate in terms of time.
- Graduate work is quite unfulfilling; lack of openness to fresh ideas
- Slightly bureaucratic
What insiders say about…
Not operational. My role changes as the work changes. A lot of planning work & evaluation of investments.
There is a culture of openness and flexibility. I appreciate that I'm allowed to work from home, even as a graduate and my manager understands that because I live far from work, it's more convenient for me at times.
The interview process/assessments were quite simple for the Graduate role because I had already successfully participated in a more extensive process and assessments for a Summer Vacation role at the same company (online testing, group activity, technical interview and behavioural interview). Hence, the Graduate role only required an hour long panel interview discussion with two HR people and a business member.
Behavioural, leadership, motivations, learning style, experience, self-awareness, logic and reasoning, managing risk. Preference for first rotation role, interest in working overseas.
Be genuine - authentic and honest. Use the STAR method for answering behavioural questions. Consider other types of leadership (e.g. personal) in addition to team leadership. Consider the company's values (will be reflected in questions and excellent answers). Prepare for technical interview (case-based with additional scenarios/circumstances added). Check your self-awareness.
Work 8 hours each day. Those 8 hours can be done at any time. Company is very flexible when it comes to working from home.
Pay is decent, and is increased by the large number of bonuses, the total package is great.
Fuel discounts, cheap tickets, travel opportunities
Probably depends on your manager, specifically, but my line managers/bosses are amazing. Even when flexible working, always ensures to have time for me. Great with follow-up. Provides, clear, valuable and constructive feedback and recommends and authorises relevant and useful learning material. Makes a great mentor. Other people in the organisation constantly reaching out to my manager for guidance and assistance and they are always willing to help. They invite input into work being undertaken, and are happy to answer or question a lot of the 'why' questions about why we do things.
Graduate program is not consistent in the quality or frequency of the formal development opportunities.
They love grads. There's almost an expectation of advancement. They have several programs throughout careers to develop all staff, not just grads.
More visibility of commitment to diversity in terms of women and ethnic minorities. For my intake the graduates are all women and from culturally diverse backgrounds (Aboriginal, Chinese, Singaporean, And South American). There seems to be good retention of female employees after maternity leave. There is probably more diversity in Sales & Marketing (particularly gender and promotion) than in Finance (more traditional).
Recruits through some talent agencies which focus on social mobility (socio-economic and cultural).
Opal fuel (for Aboriginal communities), OzHarvest (provides fuel for distribution vehicles and coordinates employee participation in events), every employee receives two volunteer days every year (additional day of leave to give time and effort to approved charities), employee matching fund (for charity donations).
