Very Easy Interview
I applied online and interviewed at Baker Hughes.
Interview Details – I applied for the Australia Graduate Field Engineering position in at the start of November a couple of days later i was invited for a phone interview this was completed towards the end of November. The phone interview was pretty straight forward and all the quests can be found through a quick search. I was told I would hear details in a month but didn't hear anything till late January where I was invited to the BHE in Perth.
Interview Question – Name a time you has made a bad decision? What did you do to rectify? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Baker Hughes in November 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and was selected for phone interview. Was given a 4 days to prepare the interview (plenty of time), they give a choice of time and date, interview took around 20 min.
1) Why do you want to work for baker hughes?
2)Tell me a time when you used your technical skills to solve a problem ?
3) What was your favourite subject of your MSc, (follow up question:) what did you do to learn more about this subject?
Was asked to complete and online English test (a requirement for foreigners).
4 days later was invited to participate Baker Hughes Experience (2 day assessment):
1st day: breakfast at 6am followed by individual presentation of all candidates and assessors (12 assessors for 19 candidates. Group task 1 - building a paper plane and presenting it. Group task 2 - building a drilling tower with straws and paper with time limit. Set of individual tests - mechanical, English and numerical. Individual interview with 6 of the assessors - 2 behavioural questions
2nd day: 6h30am. Group debate. Group presentation - pretending to be recruiters trying to sell the company to graduates. Final individual interview with the 12 assessors.
The assessment is intense, the assessors are always around even at breakfast, lunch and dinner engaging in conversation. If you reach this point your CV and degree count for nothing, its all about standing out ( in a reasonable, professional and well disposed manner). Have a prepared answer for all behavioural questions you can think of (strengths, why do you want to work with us, leadership situation, problem solving situation, etc etc..) I kind of messed up in my final interview, completely blanked out.
Didn't get the job, but got a thorough feedback about my performance!!
Feel free to ask any questions ans good Luck

Interview Details – I got a call from Malaysia around 7pm. The recruiter made an appointment with me for a phone interview the next day. The phone interview went for one hour. In the middle of the interview, the phone line dropped! I thought it's over. Because everyone was saying if the line dropped, you don't have any chance any more. But the lady CALLED BACK and we continued the interview. After that, she sent me login account for Global English test. I got 10 out 10, pretty good. A few days later, I was invited to the two day BHI experience. There were 20 of us from Melbourne, Sydney, New Zealand and Perth. They bought tickets for us and put us in a very nice hotel. It started the next day 6am and finished at around 10 pm. There were speeches, debating, group presentation, tests, assembling tools, making things and free mealtime, a long day and very tiring. The next day started at 6am again and finished around 12pm. They let us wait outside the conference room and call us one by one into the room to tell whether you have passed the assessment or not. It was VERY Nervous! There were 9 or 8 of us passed out of the 20 people.
Interview Question – There were no unexpected questions. I prepared all. But when they really asked, I sort of answered as the flow. I was very passionate and confident. I know everyone was making the same points when answering, so I was trying to make a new point but inspiring as the same time. Be innovative. Answer Question
