    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Baker Hughes in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    1. Phone interview: mostly behavior questions (difficult teammember, favorite subject and why, etc.)
    2. Webcam interview: PRACTICE! It was definitley weirder to talk to my laptop than an actual person. I was thrown off by some questions but most were similar to the phone interview.

    RDS Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview was by phone. Only behavior/personality questions were asked.

    The second round was Baker Hughes Experience as on-site interview. We were asked to prepare a technical presentation two or three days ahead. We arrived the hotel on the first day and had dinner together with hiring managers. Managers stayed at each table around half an hour so that you had chance to talk to each of them. Try to be ACTIVE to make good first impressions and managers would remember you. After dinner, we did a logic exam individually in about 1 hour and a case study in groups. No body was watching you on the case study and there was no time limit.

    Be sure to sleep early 'cause the second day started early at 6am. They drove us to one of their offices to have breakfast. There were more managers coming to talk about positions they were trying to fill in. After that, we did 4 case studies in groups in one and half hour. Five of us in one group had 15 min in total to present our work, including the first case we did at the first night. After a lunch break, we gave presentations one by one. In the end, a plant tour was given.

    Interview Questions
    • The case study was quite intensive. I could hardly contribute to the parts beyond my specialty. How to balance the time with teamwork was the major dilemma for me.   Answer Question

    Electrical Engineer III Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Baker Hughes in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    After my first interview I was selected for a second and final round interview in Houston, Texas. I was one of 15 selected. The second round interview was a 3 day event. The first day was a network event followed by a test on Myan mathematics, we had to learn the rules of the Myan number system and then do math with it. The next day consisted of an overview of the company and their business as well as meeting with hiring managers. There was a difficult case study on drilling where groups of three would be given 1 hour to asses a case and explain what engineering methods and steps were taken to meet their constraints. The final day consisted of a tour, powerpoint presentation and a series of hand on experiements: assembling mechanical parts, chemical tests, electical analysis etc...We were all told that we would be contacted within days to see if we got an offer or not. I was never contacted, was not given an offer or rejection. After several unanswered e-mails inquiring about my status I stopped contacting Bake Hughes, it was very unprofessinal of them to at least not give me a rejection letter.

    Interview Details

    Very simple behavorial phone interview, and then getting called out to Houston for their BHE, they are WATCHING YOU THE ENTIRE TIME. So don't think you can just screw around...since they don't have 1-1 interviews.

    Very good company to work for though.

    Interview Details

    I got this interview from applying on the website. There were about 22 of us on the day that we all met up in Houston to have the 'Baker Hughes Experience'. It was basically two days that consisted of doing a team project, a technical power point of whatever subject you picked, a packet full of questions that you solved in teams and then presented to everyone. There was no actual single one on one interview.
