    Field Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Although most interviews are either in person or on the phone, Baker Hughes has a new way of interviewing where you are asked to videotape yourself (similar to using skype) and answer the questions they had. It is an extremely awkward way to interview and is very unsettling. They asked typical questions, however you were only allowed to answer each question once.

    Interview Questions
    • They did not ask any technical questions only behavioral ones.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Baker Hughes in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got a call on Nov. 1 for the Field Engineer I position. It was about 30-45min interview. Some questions were : why do you want to join Baker Hughes?, what does a field engineer I do?, what other companies have you applied for?

    The rest were behavioral questions which take up most of the interview, depending on how much you talk. The Human Resource representative was nice. They just want to get to know you.
