    I applied online. I interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview

    Applied on their website, and got an email telling me I had made it to the interview round. Received instructions for a video interview where recorded questions were asked and you were given about 2 minutes to respond. The video interview would be glitchy at times, depending largely on the internet connection. Sent the interview in around November, but didn't hear back until April.

    Interview Questions

    • Generic questions such as interest in the position and the job. Typical behavioral interview.   1 Answer

    Interview

    I first made contact with Baker Hughes by speaking to a recruiter at my university's career fair. They were not accepting resumes and I was told to apply online. I went online and submitted my resume, cover letter, and transcript.

    A week later, I was sent an invitation for an online interview in which I recorded answers to a series of questions. The question was shown, 30 seconds of prep time was given, and then 3 minutes to answer each question. The questions asked had to do with how you have dealt with situations in the past, examples of leadership or teamwork, and why you are interested in Baker.

    About a week later, I was sent an invitation to the Baker Hughes Experience. It was a great two day experience which you learn a lot of about the company while the hiring managers watch how you work on different assessments and group projects. You let them know what segment you would like to work in and where.
