Application Process & Interviews at BP Australia

Please describe the interview process and assessments.

Interviews were face to face, no video or phone interviews. Assessment centre was quite straightforward and there was an opportunity to meet people from the company outside of the interviewing process.

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.

Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?

Research and make sure you know the history, know the values and understand who you are applying to work for. Have passion for the values, don't apply if you aren't willing to demonstrate how these values link to you.

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).
