    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview

    Interview process took over three months from the time I submitted the application to the time I received an offer. Very little communication during these months. Once I had the phone interview I didn't hear from anybody for over a month, even tried calling the interviewer back to get an update, and only got voicemail 5 times. Never called me back until three months later.

    Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    After assuming the "Graduate Field Engineer" position was dead in the water, I applied for this. Like the full-time position had a hirevue interview with the SAME questions (except for one). I answered the same, since after all I passed the one for the full time position, and got a rejection 2 days later.

    Like, really? It took a month to review the full-time position interview, now it takes two days? Plus after nearly 5 months of radio silence (try contacting HR, they won't answer) they suddenly kick into high efficiency? I have no idea what's going on with the company, but this has really destroyed my image of them.

    Interview Questions

    • Same questions as before, only the "why do you want to be a field engineer" is now "why do you want to be a field engineering intern"   Answer Question

    Field Engineer Interview

    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.
