    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    I found the hiring process to be very formal and business-like. I was informed of the company's interest and followed-up with pre-interview questions by email. A few days later I had a phone interview with the company's recruiter and again asked the basic interview questions. I ended up getting an in-person interview and to my surprise, I was asked the same canned interview questions and was told from the beginning of the interview, they were looking for the right fit for the position. The entire process took about 2 weeks from start to finish.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you like least about your job. Not a tough question, but after answering it 3 times it become a bit redundant.   Answer Question

    Field Engineer I Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and after a couple of weeks received a call to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was exhausting but was mostly general HR questions. Lots of "describe a situation where this or that happened." It was a little impersonal but that was the only complaint I had. After about 3 days I was e-mailed and told I made it past that round and I was welcome to come out for the Baker Hughes Experience. Even though I was one of quite a few people (20-30) there, it was such a great experience. The managers that would eventually hire you were there to talk about the work with them and there were several activities over the two days. All in all I thought it as a great process.

    Interview Details

    Tough but good. Evaluate on more skills than just technical. Involved presentations, tests, pop-interviews, impromptu speeches, and time sensitive tasks. It constantly changes but I know that in general the new hire/college graduate interview process is what I have briefly described.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Baker Hughes in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with them that lasted for about 30 minutes and there were multiple parts for most questions. They kinda seemed repetitive though or maybe I didn't answer the previous question like they wanted so they twisted it and asked again. For the most part, I felt good about my answers but didn't get a call back. I don't remember the exact questions but I know they were technical in nature.
