If you are pondering a career with BP you may want to think again I was an ARCO Heritage employee when BP bought them in 2001. BP sold out my field asset last year in my 30th year. BP did not give me the medical retirement because I was 48 1/2 years old not 50. Where someone that was 50 and had 10 years got the medical retirement and someone that was 55 with five years received the same.

Wow, what a sentimental statement. It sort of rhymes with: don’t care.
It’s just a job, you are merely an indentured servant, get on with it and quit sniveling, nobody frankly cares.
I was considering a career here at this company but the reputation of BP and BPX is awful. I went to this forum to try and glean more insights into whst other industry professionals were telling me. I must say, I was not disappointed and I'm glad I did some research. A company will vet a candidates online presence and I decided to do the same. After reading this post I ran across this response, "The rule is 50 and as you were not that age you don’t qualify. What is your problem?"
My only guess is that this must be an HR person or something of that nature. This company seems to sc--w their employees pretty hard while over working them and the company culture appears to be pretty unhealthy.
I have decided to go elsewhere to pursue a career and I'll let all of my professional contacts know why. What an awful response to a person who gave you 30 years.
No thank you. I dont want that.
The rule is 50 and as you were not that age you don’t qualify. What is your problem?
The Brits squeeze the tea bag twice. They are very penny-wise and pound foolish at this company. Do not work there.
BP is famous for severing employees near 50 years of age. Just ask the Whiting employees that were cut.
