Senior Financial Analyst Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Baker Hughes (Denver, CO) in September 2012.
Contacted by HR rep out of TX for a phone screen. That led to a face-to-face in Denver regional office with a SFA and a Sales/Project manager who's team the role would be supporting. I did well and met with the hiring manager who was the controller in Houston who's team the role was on. I was told after the interview that I would be told of the descision within 4 business days. I was told I had the skills and personality for the role. I never heard a thing back. I called HR and left a VM and sent an email. I never even received a 'thanks but no thanks' form email saying BH moved on. I understand a company of that size and financial success attracts very smart and talented people but I don't agree with treating applicants like they are commodities and never reaching back out again. A simple email stating BH made a choice and it wasn't me is something that would satisfy most candidates.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in August 2012.
First I had a tough phone interview administered by an HR representative. Then I had a panel interview administered by two finance managers. And lastly another panel interview administered by three finance managers. The two panel interviews lasted over one hour.

Senior Financial Analyst InterviewDeclined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Baker Hughes.
Process was straight forward. First round of screening was on a phone interview. Second round was with a member of the group and the Operations lead. Third round was with hiring manager. Hiring manager was located in a different state, so other circumstances may have allowed only 2 rounds.
Reasons for Declining
Company was unwilling to negotiate salary. When I began the interview process, I laid out my salary expectations. HR told me my expectations were high, but asked if I'd make a lateral move for equivalent compensation. When the offer came in, it was $10K under my current salary. I indicated this wasn't exactly equivalent, but they indicated they had no wiggle room. The individuals I worked with were very pleasant, and recommended I look for a more Sr role with the company. In the end, they are very firm on corporate salary ranges.
