    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I met the recruiter at a project design competition for my university and he told me to give him a call if I was interested in working with them. The phone interview took place about a week after contacting him and was very traditional questions about my resume. It took a long time after the initial contact with him for an in-person interview to be scheduled, but after the interview I received an offer in a week.

    The interview was very relaxed. It consisted of the recruiter, the manager in the division, and myself. We sat in his office and chatted for a while and he worked in questions about my past experience and how I handled problems in the workplace. Nothing nontraditional until he handed me a large piece of metal (piece of a drilling rig) and asked me what I thought it was. I guessed based on its design and turned out to be dead on even though I had never seen it before. I don't know if that really impressed him or not.

    Reasons for Declining

    I chose to move to another city. If I wanted to remain in Houston I most certainly would have accepted the offer.

    Mechanical Engineer Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Applied through our career website and got an interview call. Interview went ok and am supposed to wait for a couple of weeks to get the result which never happened(It's over a month now). I think baker hughes has the history of neglecting people by not even letting know the interview result to the people interviewed as this is not the first time I've learned about such an experience with baker hughes.

    Interview Questions

    • All were behavioral questions. A kind of a stress interview wherein the interviewer was asking questions at high frequency.   Answer Question

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for position and about a month after application got a phone interview. The next day I got a call for a face to face interview the following week. After the interview it went silent for about 5 weeks, but then got the job.
    Interview itself was unique. I was very few questions, it was just a tour around the shop floor. I think the interview was more about my interest level and the types of questions that I asked the interviewer.
    I did a lot of research for the position including technical details of the product, and this really paid off because I could ask intelligent questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too difficult, but he asked 'out of 164 applicants why do you think that you are the best candidate?'   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. The starting salary was very good and I didn't feel the need.
