What do you like about working at BP?
"Pays very well and the industry is virtually recession proof. They literally extract their fortune from the ground and since the product is highly profitable, the company can afford to be managed and operated poorly with minor recourse."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"5-years truck driving experience (real trucks, e.g. 18-wheelers), clean driving record, be white or mexican doesn't hurt either."
What don't you like about working at BP?
"Typical top-down management structure. The high-ups understand management and investment in general but know little about day-to-day operations. As a result, operations seem to be gradually declining, along with the value delivered to employees, and overall moral. There is a high degree of bureaucracy within and among management groups, classism is actively fostered among work groups that are tied together. The work environment is downright hostile."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Sell to someone who knows what they are doing. Instead of hiring a large number of low quality managers and introducing a mind boggling amount of stratification job division among several incompetent managers, hire fewer managers that actually have proven records and know what they are doing. Don't forget to compensate them well. I get paid better than my manager. How do you think this makes him feel"
