    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Baker Hughes in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in May 2014, was called two days later to set up a phone screen interview. The phone screen interview was scheduled for a week later and consisted of behavioral questions. There were 9 questions total. The first seven had 5 subsections, which the interview asked immediately after the main question but would not repeat, so you had to write them down very quickly to be able to answer them. The interviewer was very nice. Got an email 30 minutes after the interview saying I passed and I would have a follow up within a month about a potential second interview.

    Interview Details

    First phone interview was about degree, gpa, and resident status.

    Second phone interview consisted of 9 questions with a time limit of 3min for each question. 7 questions had 4 sub sections. What was the issue? What action did you take? Were there any barriers? What was your learning outcome?

    The last two questions was why do you want to work for Baker Hughes and "Is there anything else I should know to why you are a good candidate"?

    *I have a physics degree which is along the same lines as a engineering degree..... You will get a phone interview with a science related degree, but don't expect an invitation to BHE* If you have gotten offer through this route please leave a comment

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, after which I had a face to face interview. Unfortunately, "Application Engineer" is a catch all bucket for a lot of different roles, so you had better just hope that your skill set matches up to an immediate need/demand, since you can't really tailor/predict what they want.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Pretty straightforward interview on experience and what I want to accomplish in the role.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No real negotiation phase. Merely a request for a target salary.

    Interview Questions
    • If you want to minimize the chance of messing up or freezing in front of the webcam, you can do what I did. Prepare a list of questions from other reviews in glassdoor for this position. Then just answer them based on your experiences (doing it in front of a mirror helps with your confidence). You may not get asked many of the questions you got ready for, but at least you get to explore your brain for good stories and tailor them to answer any question you did not expect coming.   View Answer
