    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume. I received a call and phone screen which went very well. I then had an interview with the hiring manager which also went very well. I then had a 1 on 1 interview with the Manager +1. I also was asked to speak with the North American Vice President. The entire interview process was very professional and very well organized. The questions were directed towards my experience, skills, behaviors and work ethic. It was very thorough and the fact that three levels of management were concerned about hiring the right person was appreciated. In retrospect it may have been more of a control issue than the latter.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was probably in regards to my 5 years experience and whether it related to the position that i was applying for. I guess the strong implication that it did not apply and was not really considered valid was much unexpected.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was very profesional. We went back and forth a few times based on salary and vacation time.

    Graduate Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone screen about a week before the BHE (are you eligible to work in U.S.? why do you want to work at Baker Hughes?). BHE is pretty much exactly like others have described. You give your product line and geographic preferences at the very end and it seems that that's how they eliminate people.

    The only difference was they gave us an offer or not on the second day. We all waited outside a room and one by one they told us yes or no. They'll tell you they'll get back to you in a week but don't or that they'll keep your resume. They lie to your faces saying they are interviewing for all product lines and locations based on availability and where they think you'd fit but really are only hiring for the locations and product lines that they have hiring managers for there.

    If you're looking for a good field job, this is it. Just be open to go into the product lines and locations that the hiring managers are from. Be personable, ask relevant questions. And for the part assemblies, the pieces are numbered. Just follow the instructions. Mayan test is fairly easy. Just know how it works and use lines instead of blocks to save time when converting between mayan and arabic (normal 1,2,3..). The quiz after the info session on the first day does not matter.

    Interview Questions

    • Rate how you think you're doing during the interview on a scale of 1-10. Who was the leader in your group (from the final presentation where you sell Baker Hughes to college students)?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    It was very basic and they did not ask me any challenging questions. Now that I think back, I would not have chosen to work there based on that interview. The interview did not ask me relevant questions and the team did not seem engaged or interested in anything new.

    Field Engineer I Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    As a veteran, I went through a Military Officer Recruiting firm. We were called to attend a Hiring Conference in the city/region that we desired to work in. It was a three day process. The first day was learning the process, getting tips and tricks for the interviews and being provided insight to the companies we would be interviewing with the next day. On day two we started the interview process. 30 mins to an hour were allotted for each interview. We were located in a nice hotel, each company representative had their own suite to conduct the interviews in. Depending on the number of possible interviews it can be a very long day. I had seven interviews (max of 8 due to time) that day and it was VERY stressful, only to become more stressed after speaking to one company that the fit was a poor fit for me. Third day is when the recruiting company works with the companies and determines who was a match. I received three offers from companies to visit their facilities. Visited Baker Hughes and had a job offer on the table within the first 15 mins of speaking with my future boss.

    Senior Sourcing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. The hiring manager didn’t show up or give notice to other interviewers. With 18 plus years of experience in supply chain and sourcing on my resume, one of the interviewers was asking me questions about my high school graduation date, collage GPA, internships and what I did in school. Plus one of them couldn’t give a firm handshake or look me in the eye.

    Interview Questions

    • High school graduation date, collage GPA   1 Answer
