    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I met the recruiter at a project design competition for my university and he told me to give him a call if I was interested in working with them. The phone interview took place about a week after contacting him and was very traditional questions about my resume. It took a long time after the initial contact with him for an in-person interview to be scheduled, but after the interview I received an offer in a week.

    The interview was very relaxed. It consisted of the recruiter, the manager in the division, and myself. We sat in his office and chatted for a while and he worked in questions about my past experience and how I handled problems in the workplace. Nothing nontraditional until he handed me a large piece of metal (piece of a drilling rig) and asked me what I thought it was. I guessed based on its design and turned out to be dead on even though I had never seen it before. I don't know if that really impressed him or not.

    Reasons for Declining

    I chose to move to another city. If I wanted to remain in Houston I most certainly would have accepted the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Baker Hughes (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for position and about a month after application got a phone interview. The next day I got a call for a face to face interview the following week. After the interview it went silent for about 5 weeks, but then got the job.
    Interview itself was unique. I was very few questions, it was just a tour around the shop floor. I think the interview was more about my interest level and the types of questions that I asked the interviewer.
    I did a lot of research for the position including technical details of the product, and this really paid off because I could ask intelligent questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too difficult, but he asked 'out of 164 applicants why do you think that you are the best candidate?'   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. The starting salary was very good and I didn't feel the need.
