    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Digital Interview Process. They recorded the questions and you record your answers via an application. You have 30 seconds before answering and 3 mins to answer each questions. There were 9 questions in total, 3 of them were conventional interview questions. Those 3 questions were: "Why would you be a good fit for this job?", "Why should we hire you?", "Do you want to add something about yourself/ or do you have any questions?" It takes 20-30 mins. Focus on behavioral questions. One of them was similar to this: "Tell me about a time when you disagreed with your coworker, what was the situation?, what did you do to solve the problem?, what was the result?, would you handle it differently now?".

    Interview Questions

    • There were many behavioral interview questions. They were not difficult but I did not expect that many behavioral questions. Questions were in the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) format. For instance, they asked "How can you handle different tasks at the same time if you have limited budget and time? Give an example from your experience. Did you need additional assistance for the task?" etc.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email that Baker Hughes recruiter had been trying to contact me about my application. I returned their call and they scheduled a phone interview. I had my phone interview which was fairly straight forward and simple then another one of their recruiting managers scheduled my face to face interview with the hiring manager. I was then contacted by the hiring manager to schedule the interview himself, I met with him and the two other managers involved with the position for a panel face to face interview. Questions were in-depth and detailed but overall not a bad experience. All managers were friendly and professional.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met recruiter at career fair and followed up with email... got link to a one way online interview (answer prerecorded questions via web cam). Simple behavioral questions, but generally too long to answer in 3 minutes example, tell me of a time you had you did not meet deadline, what was situation, what deadline missed, what happened, conclusions, what did you learn, what would you do differently next time. Note after question is asked, you get 30 seconds to think and then respond. also you can pause/break or some time (1 or 2 minutes) between questions, that is right after you answer a question but before you click to view the next one. Do the practice questions to get a better understanding of what to expect, you can do as many as you want anyways, you will get different ones during the interview.
