Beware BP not reimbursing travel costs



I went for an interview with BP - British Petroleum in Paris in Feb 2011.
They have asked me to travel from London and make the arrangements myself.
The day of the interview being a Friday, the train tickets were at their most expensive.

2 months later and no reimbursement. No replies from recruitment agency Badenoch & Clark either on my repeated follow-ups.
I understand these are tough times but I find it very mean of a company/ recruitment agency to mislead candidates quite like that.

Truly pleased I haven’t accepted their offer if this is the standard… I hope it will serve as a warning to other potential candidates.

Good luck with the job search elsewhere!
