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

Difficult Interview

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

Supply Chain Interview

Supply Chain
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Baker Hughes in September 2013.

Interview Details – First Round: simple behavioral questions

Second Round: You will be flown to Houston for two days. We had to do several surprise assessments that did not accurately show strengths. Overly competitive people threw each other under the bus and sucked up to hiring managers. They did not have interest in hiring the best candidates for the job but those that could present themselves in the best way. There was a lot of teamwork, which was good. Some of the candidates acted so fake when a hiring manager was watching. So if you want the job, do not be yourself. Take control of the projects, throw others under the bus, and suck up to as many HR panelists as possible. It was unreal how quickly some peoples' behavior changed when they were at the hotel. You can easily manipulate the hiring managers if that is your personality type; It isn't mine.

Supply Chain Development Program Interview

Supply Chain Development Program
Houston, TX

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

Interview Details – I met with Baker-Hughes at a university career fair. After speaking with their representatives, they set-up an interview. First round was very basic, behavioral based questions. The next day, I got an email stating I passed the first round and was recommended to the second round. I heard nothing for an entire month until I received an invite to the Baker Hughes experience. The event was a little disappointing, but still challenging. In place of standard interviews, they had us do a number of activities: doing a group case, building an oil rig from sticks and tape, debating activity, and other small ones.

Interview Question – During the Baker-Hughes experience, the most challenging part was debating different scenarios. They had you choose sides on fictional situations, then present an argument and counter argument to all who thought differently. Seemed like the ultimate goal was to judge your speaking skills and influencing skills   Answer Question
