Interview Details – The company flew around 30 people out to Houston, TX. My flight was around 1400 dollars so I was sure to get the job due to the company spending so much money. Well it was obvious that they were looking for a white male to work for them. A few of the managers there showed no interest in me. I would smile, speak, as questions and they showed no interest.
Interview Question – No unexpected question. Everything that the others wrote is valid. There is a test about mayan numbers. We did not how to know all the managers name nor tested on it. We were not able to choose our top 3 product lines thou. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Baker Hughes in November 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online, contacted me by email requesting a phone screen interview. Called back, set up the interview and got asked 4 behavioral questions. The fact of not having an internship, really took a toll on me. This company is really interested in people who have had experience in the oilfield.

Interview Details –
The interview process is like what many of the others have described. The first was phone, simple behavioral questions then a fly down to Houston to their facility and assessments. It was kind of boring (the tour), since I don't need to be seeing a mass balance (what does it show me about the company?). 3 45-minute assessments, just stay calm as you go through them. They are pretty easy.
On the first night, we had a quiz. I knew most of the answers, but I have a tendency to cross things out a lot so when I turned in the quiz they probably thought I got everything wrong (this happened to a few others also) [quiz was taken in pen they provided you with, so do not cross stuff out or do not fill stuff out because they will give you the answers BEFORE they collect it so you can fill it out]. The lady who was taking care of the logistics was kind of out of the zone and didn't seem to listen very much (I went to ask if I include a certain thing from an ID and she gave me a glare and made an announcement telling people "it's not that hard" (and she still didn't answer the dang gone question).
There were 12 hiring managers,and I did everything I can to show interest. Looks like it's an all white male [engineer] company, and they want to keep it that way. Well, to be fair, there was a manager there who looked 1/4 hispanic.
Interview Question – The mayan numerals, lol what? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Baker Hughes in November 2013.
Interview Details – The Baker Hughes Experience is a 2 day event involving approximately 50 other candidates applying for various positions. The first night is a "speed dating" dinner arrangement with various managers who rotate to your table and have casual conversation with you and a group of friends. You are provided a hotel room and a roommate. The next morning candidates are taken to the Emmott location manufacturing plant where you are put into groups and provided a business case and given an hour to create a presentation. After this you are given a plant tour to conclude the event.
Interview Question – The surprise presentation was the most difficult. You must work in a group and come up with a solution to a vague, open ended global supply chain situation. Good luck coordinating with a group of 6 other students within an hour AND presenting in front of everyone else's group including managers. It simply wasn't enough time. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No interview was necessary, I was very excited to be given an offer at all.

Interview Details –
I was contacted by phone after applying online. They set up a phone interview that consisted of some simple behavior questions, structured around your technical work and assignment experience. About an hour later I got an email saying I had made it to the 2nd round and I was invited to participate in the Baker Hughes Experience in Houston.
I flew out about a week and a half later for the 2 day event/interview/assessment. There were 15 other candidates there, but we were told that we were not competing against each other and each person would have an opportunity to get a job with Baker Hughes. The first day was just a dinner and an opportunity to network with some managers and current employees. It can be a little repetitive but it's important to make sure people remember you so be sure to speak up and ask questions. After dinner there was a quiz about Baker Hughes based on a video you will watch, so as another poster said before, take notes if you can.
Day 2 was long. Very long. Be sure you get some good sleep. We ran a bit late but we started our day at 6:30am and didn't get back to the hotel til 6:30pm. Throughout the day you will be assessed, so be very aware of how you are presenting yourself and how you are speaking. You will go through a number of structured activities and assessments where it is more about the process than the product. Just like before, make sure you speak up and that during the group activities you are making distinguishable contributions that you can speak about after you're done. Throughout the day you will have some opportunities to speak with the managers, some VPs, and others who will have an influence on the hiring decisions, so don't spend all your time just talking to the other candidates. Our day ended with a 45 minute tour of the facility followed by a few closing words from the recruiter.
Still waiting for a response, but they said we should hear back within a week.

Interview Details – Applied through Career Center and on Baker Hughes' website. Got a call a few weeks later to set up an HR phone interview. Phone interview was awkward and the interviewer gave me another woman's email address who I had never spoken to so I could not easily follow up or thank interviewer. Expected to be rejected after phone interview, but surprisingly wasn't. Flew to Houston for 3 day "Baker Hughes Experience" which is a series or team-work and technical assessments. You need to find a way to interact with the hiring managers as much as possible if you want an offer. Research product lines before hand in an attempt to understand them or at least ask intelligent questions. The only true "interview" was a 10 minute panel interview where they ask 3 very basic questions and if you have done any research or paid attention during the BHE you should have no trouble. By the end of the 2nd day you should have a sense of whether you will get an offer or not. You need to make sure the hiring managers know you and like you. It seems like this matters more than the technical assessments.
Interview Question – None. They really don't "interview" you. Do research on the product lines. It will be really difficult to understand them, but having some basic idea of what they are will make a positive impression on hiring managers Answer Question
