I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Baker Hughes in June 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by 3 different coordinators before I finally got a phone interview with the person hiring for the position. it was pretty disorganized. They said they would schedule me for a face to face and then called me 2 hours before the time they wanted to interview me to see if it would work. but they did agree to a phone interview since I couldn't leave work at the drop of a hat.

Interview Question – no difficult questions, just very hard to interview over the phone.   Answer Question

Graduate Field Engineer Interview

Graduate Field Engineer

I applied online - interviewed at Baker Hughes in June 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call within a few hours to set-up a phone interview, which was scheduled for about 2 weeks later. The phone interview was about 40 mins for me. She first asked me to identify myself by giving my school, major, cumulative GPA, graduation date, and if I needed work sponsorship. Then the behavioral part began. There were 9 questions, each with multiple parts. She could repeat the main question, but not the parts of the main question. So have something to write with/on during the interview. The parts of each question were similar though. They were like: what was the task/situation at hand, what problems did you have, what actions did you take, what was the outcome, what did you learn, what how did you apply that to other situations. The first three questions were about technical problems: give an example a technical problem you worked on that you had to apply your technical knowledge to, give an example of a difficult technical problem you solved, give an example of a complex technical problem in which you had no supervision. The next three were team-oriented: give an example of a time you worked as a team member to solve a problem, give an example of a time you made a positive difference as a leader of a team, give an example of a time you had to address a conflict as team leader. Last question with multiple parts was give an example of a time you set a challenging goal for yourself. The last two didn't have parts, and they were give 3 reasons you want to work for Baker Hughes, and lastly, tell me anything else about yourself that you think I should know. Then she asked if I had any questions, and told me she would contact me in 5 days about my result.

Interview Question – I had trouble thinking time I worked on a complex technical problem in which I had no supervision   View Answers (3)
