    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baker Hughes in February 2013.

    Interview

    Meet a representative at an on campus career fair. Gave them my resume and I was called that night to schedule an interview the next day. This decision was apparently based exclusively on my GPA. This interview was only 15-30 minutes and consisted of a resume review and basic behavior questions. The questions were aimed to assess your social skills and how you work under pressure and in difficult situations. No "gotcha questions" or anything technical. Overall it was very pleasant and the HR rep (not an engineer) was friendly. Not high pressure at all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Lafayette, LA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The on campus interview was very comfortable and the man who interviewed me made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I was then invited to the Baker Hughes Experience a few days later. This process is two days and is an attempt to give you an idea of what the life is like as a field engineer. There is an assessment test as well as other teamwork activities. The last night you are assigned a project that is to be presented to all the candidates and hiring managers the next morning. After the presentations, there is a final panel interview. You are also given a tour of their facility. Take advantage of your time with the hiring managers. Ask them as many questions about their lifestyle as a field engineer and the work load. Be honest with them because they are honest with you. Also try to personally get to know them so they will remember you. On my way out the door on the last day, a few of the hiring managers stopped me to ask me a question about a story I mentioned the first night. Anyway, try to get as much information as possible from them. They are trying to determine if you and Baker Hughes are a match. They are very welcoming and warm and I really enjoyed my experience. I am currently waiting on a call from them to find out if I got a job offer. They will take about two days after the BHE to contact you. They will contact you to let you know if you have an offer or not so no need in bugging them.

    I submit my resume on the school website, and I am asked to join an on campus interview. It is a 30 mins face to face interview. Since just for campus career fair, most of the questions are behavior questions. Talking about your resume, projects, or any other related experience. This is only a entry level field position designated for fresh graduate. The interviewer is very experienced, interesting and talkative guy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Phone, in person, after phone call had a call with HR and went to houston for interview in person with the manager of the department. I worked here a year and left to work for a rival company with more opportunity and professionalism. Felt the management was extremely sexist and living in the past. This is a new oilfield now, it is necessary to evolve to compete. If the business doesn't evolve and foster an innovative environment it will surely die.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Broussard, LA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Met with Baker Hughes recruiter during college career fair. Invited to on campus info session and the next day a 1:1 interview. After several weeks I was called, information was verbally confirmed from my resume and I was asked if I was still seeking full time position. Next I was put into consideration for round 2, the Baker Hughes Experience (BHE). After almost one month I was notified via phone of my offer to attend the BHE. Needed to fly to Houston the next week. Baker Hughes flew me from California to Texas, and I met about 35 other candidates from all over US with varying engineering degrees there. After 3 days of intense interviewing and introduction to the Baker Hughes culture 4 candidates were offered positions, so very glad to be one of them!

Star Star Star Star Star   Former Fishing Field Engineer in Oklahoma City, OK

Pros: “I worked with the Fishing department out of college.

The first three years in the BHE engineer path are well structured and you get a lot of money and time invested in you as an employee. Plenty of training opportunities and development schools within the company. I had an excellent experience with my team and my location (OKC). The second year doing field work you can double your salary (or more) if you're willing to bust your hump in the oil field. In hindsight, I wish I would have worked even harder.” – Full Review
