Very Easy Interview

SOX Analyst Interview

SOX Analyst
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Baker Hughes in April 2009.

Interview Details – I hired in as a temporary via Kelly Services. There was no interview other than establishing with the external recruiter I had some basic accounting knowledge. At the time, BHI was hiring anyone with any accounting experience (and oftentimes without) to meet an unrealistic compliance deadline.

Interview Question – Can you fill this cup up to the line?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was none. The placement agency told me what the going rate was and it wasn't negotiable. I was able to renegotiate for a better rate when I gave notice because I had a full time offer elsewhere. The company was in such dire straights for competent accounting professionals they paid me double what I was worth at such an early point in my career. I was also hourly non-exempt and working a minimum of 84 hours a week. BHI bought me a house.

Graduate Field Engineer Interview

Graduate Field Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Baker Hughes in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through my University website for the Graduate Field Engineer position. Got a response a couple weeks later and was scheduled for an on-campus interview a couple more weeks after that. The interview was one-on-one with a company representative and consisted entirely of behavior questions (e.g. "tell me about yourself", "why do you want to work for Baker Hughes", "describe a time..."). After the interview I was told the company would follow up within a week to let me know if I would be accepted for an on-site interview. By the end of the week I was contacted and told that I had not been selected for the on-site interview.

Interview Question – All the questions were pretty generic behavior questions.   View Answer

Field Engineer Interview

Field Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Baker Hughes.

Interview Details – On campus behavioral interview then invited to the Baker Hughes Experience which you can read all about here or other google results. Seriously just talk to the managers, I didn't do great on the evaluations but I made sure all the managers knew me and it worked all right. If you really need a job, find a manager or two you get along with, dedicate yourself to those product lines, ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS, and if you really want one, find out where nobody wants to go and request that area. Have a beer or two with them if they're in the bar but don't be an idiot.

Interview Question – weirdest part was prolly the ethics and safety case study test things.   Answer Question
