    Field Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and after a couple of weeks received a call to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was exhausting but was mostly general HR questions. Lots of "describe a situation where this or that happened." It was a little impersonal but that was the only complaint I had. After about 3 days I was e-mailed and told I made it past that round and I was welcome to come out for the Baker Hughes Experience. Even though I was one of quite a few people (20-30) there, it was such a great experience. The managers that would eventually hire you were there to talk about the work with them and there were several activities over the two days. All in all I thought it as a great process.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    Tough but good. Evaluate on more skills than just technical. Involved presentations, tests, pop-interviews, impromptu speeches, and time sensitive tasks. It constantly changes but I know that in general the new hire/college graduate interview process is what I have briefly described.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    One hour phone screen, one hour interview, offer within one week. Director I interviewed with made me feel that she knew me. She had my resume memorized and rarely looked at it. Her questions, observations and comments were related as if I were casually chatting with an old friend...Low-stress environment and encounter.

    RDD Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Tulsa, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tulsa, OK
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    I met at career fair and was emailed about 2 months later for a Baker Hughes Experience. I accepted and was given a couple days to prepare a technical presentation.

    I flew down for the BHE. The first night consisted of meeting managers and other interviewees. It was a good time.

    The second day was stressful and non-stop. In no particular order:
    - a case study was completed in groups of 4. We had one hour to complete a study for implementing some new equipment / do some project.
    - some simple tests like reading pH and putting a machine together. And some other math tests that weren't too hard.
    - the presentations were given to all interviewees and managers. The presentations were about 10 minutes. Some were serious, others were technical details on less serious topics (mine included).

    The third day, we flew out early. No tour of facilities were given, and everything was conducted at resturaunt / hotel conference room.
