    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Exploratory interview - they were hiring for a bunch of positions at the time I interviewed. 5 hour interview with different departments. Interviewers were predominantly interested in how you sold yourself rather than poking you for field-specific skills. Can be good or bad based on what you want out of the job. At that time, I just needed a job and was not very keen on understanding what the company had to offer. Field-specific questions can mean that the company is a well-structured, analytical company. If there is less of it, one could interpret that the people in there themselves do not have clear idea of what they are hiring you for.

    Interview Questions

    Was initially rejected by Baker Hughes through computer screening process, was hired in an interview with BJ Services, a simple 20 minute interview and was offered the job on the spot.

    Interview

    I received an email from careers international inviting me to Oneday with baker hughes its a live chat with the HR and Manager about the company and what working there would be like. I later received another email from Baker Hughes asking me to choose what country i would like to work and then called me up for an online video interview. It is a recorded video interview on Hirevieu where you have questions posted and then you have to record your answer. there were 9 questions with a 3min timeline most of what have already been listed above......I am believing I will hear back from the company soon.
