    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The company flew around 30 people out to Houston, TX. My flight was around 1400 dollars so I was sure to get the job due to the company spending so much money. Well it was obvious that they were looking for a white male to work for them. A few of the managers there showed no interest in me. I would smile, speak, as questions and they showed no interest.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected question. Everything that the others wrote is valid. There is a test about mayan numbers. We did not how to know all the managers name nor tested on it. We were not able to choose our top 3 product lines thou.   Answer Question

    They paid to fly us down to Houston for a 2 day interview. There were about 25 new college grads and a ton of managers looking to hire.

    We were told we would be hearing about offers within the next 2 weeks. A manager contacted me and did a little phone interview then hired me!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Brief face to face meeting with the Hiring Manager who already had a candidate pre-determined and this was simply to achieve his minimum number of interviews quota. The entire face to face lasted less than 30 minutes and was very unfulfilling.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    On campus behavioral interview then invited to the Baker Hughes Experience which you can read all about here or other google results. Seriously just talk to the managers, I didn't do great on the evaluations but I made sure all the managers knew me and it worked all right. If you really need a job, find a manager or two you get along with, dedicate yourself to those product lines, ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS, and if you really want one, find out where nobody wants to go and request that area. Have a beer or two with them if they're in the bar but don't be an idiot.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I met with Baker-Hughes at a university career fair. After speaking with their representatives, they set-up an interview. First round was very basic, behavioral based questions. The next day, I got an email stating I passed the first round and was recommended to the second round. I heard nothing for an entire month until I received an invite to the Baker Hughes experience. The event was a little disappointing, but still challenging. In place of standard interviews, they had us do a number of activities: doing a group case, building an oil rig from sticks and tape, debating activity, and other small ones.

    Interview Questions

    • During the Baker-Hughes experience, the most challenging part was debating different scenarios. They had you choose sides on fictional situations, then present an argument and counter argument to all who thought differently. Seemed like the ultimate goal was to judge your speaking skills and influencing skills   Answer Question
