Interview Details First of all I'm really thankful to all my friends who posted their experiences on this blog.
I applied online about two months back from now. Fortunately after repeated try i finally got a system generated mail from Bakerhughes.
It was a confirmation mail asking me to schedule the telephonic round.
keep in mind to take enough time in your hand to prepare yourself with there normal HR questions with as many examples as you can.
Almost all the questions that can be asked to you are posted on this blog. So do your homework and be ready for the day.
I fortunately cleared the telephonic round, it was a bit long(around 50 minutes) but was kinda interesting.

Initially she confirmed my academics details.
Later asked me Six questions :
Which is your Favorite subject and why?
Why you want to join Baker?
What do you know about Baker?
Tell me about an experience where you used your technical skills to solve a problem?What you did? what did you learned from the experiences?
Tell me about a time when you have to work with a difficult person in a team. What you did? what did you learned from the experiences?
Which other companies you applied.

Very next day I got a request to give Global English Test STEP+
I got 8 out of 10.

Now waiting for my BHE(Baker Hughes Experience) call.

I chose a day and the time of the interview, they called at the exact time. The interview was jst like everybody described. Give an example of situation where i applied my technical knowledge to sokve a tech problem, give an example of a technical project i worked with no or not direct supervision, how dud i solve a conflict when working in a team. The interview was nothing of out of ordinary. Same day i git the link for the English test which i did on the spot and received the results few hours later. I was invited to the BH 2 days experience where we had to write tests, attend presentations and interact with other candidates and product lines manager. One advice to candidate: dont show any sign of fatigue as these 2 days are really long, ask as many question as you can and make sure your English is at least level 5.
