    Field Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and after a couple of days received an email asking me to complete the digital interview through Hirevue.

    Same drill - 10 questions, 30 sec prep, 3 minutes to answer, no mulligans. It was a little intense. I was running out of "real examples" to give.

    The following day I received an email congratulating me and stating that I have successfully passed the initial interview stage, my application will be passed to second selection stage, and I would be recommended as a suitable candidate. To keep your ego in check, at the end of the email they write, "Please remember that your status makes you eligible for the second round interview, but does not guarantee you will be selected to attend."

    Now I wait.

    The interview questions posted here are one-sentence, truncated versions of what they really ask during the digital interview. Yes, they cover the general idea of the question, but some literally have 8+ questions within a single question that I assumed we had to answer on the fly as well.

    So here I break bread for all the help I received. I posted the ten complete questions in the order I received them.

    Good luck gentlemen.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    First I applied online which took about 10 minutes. After a few days I received notice to do an online, prerecorded interview of 10 questions at 3 minutes apiece. About 3 weeks later I received notice that I passed this round of interviews but am not guaranteed a spot at the next round of interviews. I am now waiting to hear back again (it has been about 2 weeks).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Online interview in which you answer questions. It was a awkward answering questions as you are responding to a recorded video which eliminates the benefit of reading body language. The questions were behavioral and specific for the health and safety position. Understand safety policies and be able to apply it to behavioral based questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was online, by hirehue software. It was really a weird experience since you don't have a person in front of you and all you have to do is talk about your CV. So make sure you know what you're talking about
