    I worked at Baker Hughes

    Pros

    Baker Hughes does many things well in my opinion: onboarding, training, safety, benefits, management, innovation, customer service, career advancement.

    Cons

    Long hours are required and for the most part are similar to other companies operating in the same product lines or services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continually seek ways to improve working conditions that allow field personnel "real" days off where they can have 3 or 4 days in order to travel or make solid plans with family.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from careers international inviting me to Oneday with baker hughes its a live chat with the HR and Manager about the company and what working there would be like. I later received another email from Baker Hughes asking me to choose what country i would like to work and then called me up for an online video interview. It is a recorded video interview on Hirevieu where you have questions posted and then you have to record your answer. there were 9 questions with a 3min timeline most of what have already been listed above......I am believing I will hear back from the company soon.
