    Lead Hardware Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Took about three weeks. Started with an HR interview, followed by a phone interview of around 10 folks. Then a one-on-one session with about 15 folks. The interview was horrible. The folks seems rude in person. There were two folks that basically cornered me an asked me first year engineering questions after I have been out of college for 10 years. I stated I can look it up and tell them an answer right away and they insulted me stating I am not an engineer.

    I would not work for a company that insults people in the interview itself. I had escorted myself out of the interview and have no regrets.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in November 2014.

They are like your experience even if u are graduate with no experience, and why u want to be in BH and how did you manage complex situations. Third step is the assesment center. This is very very intesive. ALL kind of test, practical like ph measure or tube misure or valve assembly with techical sheets, building a well with paper, presentation, qi and so on. better be very fluent in english. prove that you can be a leader and state your good ideas. third stage they took one person on about 10. so very difficult

    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Leduc, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Leduc, AB (Canada)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The first step is to apply online, similar to many other jobs. After the online application I received an email asking me to complete a digital interview containing 9 questions. About a week or two after the digital interview I received a call asking if I would like to take part in the BHE (Baker Hughes Experience). I went to the BHE and found that it was really well put together. They had managers from every service that they were hiring, and it was extremely informative. They sit everyone down at the end and tell you a yes/no. I was personally very impressed with the BHE, it was difficult but it shows that they care.

    Now as a bonus I want to compare this to the Schlumberger (SLB) second round interview. SLB only had hiring managers from 2 of the services that were hiring. I found SLB constantly trying to amp up wireline, and if you asked them any questions they always acted as if SLB is the best. It was a lot of fun, but in my opinion the BHE did a much better job from a recruitment standpoint. This blew me away, as I was initially leaning towards SLB very heavily. Good job Baker Hughes!

    Interview Questions

    • At the BHE - be ready to have your mind tested to the max. The debate was extremely difficult, they grill you extensively in front of the entire room. There are written tests, technical tests, team building mini-projects, presentations, and more. This is the hardest but most effective interview that I have ever taken part of, but by the end you will know whether or not Baker Hughes (or any field engineer) positions is right for you.

      Which of the 5 Baker Hughes core values do you think you represent the most?  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It's generous, I don't think I will be doing much negotiation. Start date is also flexible.
