Graduate Field Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Baker Hughes in March 2014.

Interview Details – Phone screen about a week before the BHE (are you eligible to work in U.S.? why do you want to work at Baker Hughes?). BHE is pretty much exactly like others have described. You give your product line and geographic preferences at the very end and it seems that that's how they eliminate people.

The only difference was they gave us an offer or not on the second day. We all waited outside a room and one by one they told us yes or no. They'll tell you they'll get back to you in a week but don't or that they'll keep your resume. They lie to your faces saying they are interviewing for all product lines and locations based on availability and where they think you'd fit but really are only hiring for the locations and product lines that they have hiring managers for there.

If you're looking for a good field job, this is it. Just be open to go into the product lines and locations that the hiring managers are from. Be personable, ask relevant questions. And for the part assemblies, the pieces are numbered. Just follow the instructions. Mayan test is fairly easy. Just know how it works and use lines instead of blocks to save time when converting between mayan and arabic (normal 1,2,3..). The quiz after the info session on the first day does not matter.

Interview Question – Rate how you think you're doing during the interview on a scale of 1-10. Who was the leader in your group (from the final presentation where you sell Baker Hughes to college students)?   View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Baker Hughes in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through my University website for the Graduate Field Engineer position. Got a response a couple weeks later and was scheduled for an on-campus interview a couple more weeks after that. The interview was one-on-one with a company representative and consisted entirely of behavior questions (e.g. "tell me about yourself", "why do you want to work for Baker Hughes", "describe a time..."). After the interview I was told the company would follow up within a week to let me know if I would be accepted for an on-site interview. By the end of the week I was contacted and told that I had not been selected for the on-site interview.

Interview Question – All the questions were pretty generic behavior questions.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Baker Hughes in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online for a recent graduate training program. Within three days, a recruiter called me asking for a phone screening interview the next week. The recruiter called me on time as scheduled, had a very warm personality, and was encouraging. The interview consisted of four behavioral-technical questions that were very straightforward. Now I am waiting to hear back from the company.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you used your technical skills to solve a problem.
Tell me about a time that you used your leadership skills to accomplish a goal.
Tell me about a time when you made a mistake. What did you learn from this mistake?
Tell me about a time when you had to accomplish a goal that used your technical skills. How did it relate to your studies?

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Baker Hughes in April 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online and took a quick assessment, which I assume was to make sure I was competent. I got a phone interview, and it seemed to go really well. It's been nearly two and a half months later, and about three weeks ago, I emailed asking for an update. I was told that there was no new information on the job, but I was still being considered and that I'd be contacted further. Just seems like a pretty lengthy process.
