    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    Interview

    I originally applied online and was asked a few weeks later to do a video interview on HireVue. The interview was 9 questions with about 4 of them being essentially the same question with different variations: give an example of when you had to solve a technical problem, difficulties you had, timeline, what would you do differently etc. I was then contacted about a week later to go to Houston, TX for the Baker Hughes Experience. At the end of the two day experience I received an offer on the spot.

    Interview

    I applied for an interview and was accepted after a Career Fair event. I had gone golfing with the recruiter before so it took lots of the pressure off. Questions were nothing out of the ordinary mostly a conversation. Baker does have a long interview process, after first round invited to a Baker event. I thought it was getting a little out of control. One of my peers accepted a position, he had a different interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Baker Hughes (Houston, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Went through the "Baker Hughes Experience". Did a summer internship the previous summer, and got invited to the Baker Hughes Experience in Houston for a full time opportunity in the fall. Went through a recorded video interview for the internship- no other screen before the Baker Hughes Experience. Hiring managers from around the US are there to observe/rate you and you get an offer on the spot at the end of the two days. Variety of individual/group tasks that you have to do. Meals are your opportunity to network with the hiring managers. Most (over half at least) of the people in the group on my days got an offer. Seems like they are looking for a level of outspokenness/social interaction (without being overbearing)

    Interview Questions

    • Was with a group of ~30 people. Two full days of group activities, a mix of information about the company, openings, etc, and presenting about yourself/tasks. Hiring managers are there from multiple locations/business divisions. They evaluate you in all the tasks. Ex: presenting about yourself, building a structure with straws and tape, assembling something from a drawing/instructions, etc. You have time to eat with the managers during meal times- so it is critical to meet with managers you are interesting in working for then.   Answer Question
