    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.

    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?

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Baker Hughes.

    I started my hiring process with Baker Hughes at a career fair. Things went well with the employees there, and I was able to get an on campus interview a few days later after going to a Baker Hughes information session. The second round of interviews was a video interview. This interview consisted of answering prerecorded questions, it was NOT a live interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions for the internship were very standard, but answering to just a camera and not a live or even skyped audience was somewhat uncomfortalbe   View Answers (2)

    For the internship there was not much room for negotiation at all.

    Wireline Operator I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Odessa, TX (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Odessa, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Baker Hughes in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the corporate website. Initial contact from the company took approximately 3-4 weeks after online application submission. I then got call requesting a phone interview which took place immediately. This was very brief and basic. Basic job information. Basic questions verifying my information from the application was correct. The recruiter then scheduled a tentative F2F interview with the hiring supervisor and confirmed this appointment 2 days later.

    F2F interview was very comfortable and relaxed. It was conducted by the direct supervisor of the position and the departmental manager. They told me I was overqualified for the position and under-qualified for the other positions they were seeking to fill. I demonstrated that, in that case, I'm the ideal candidate since I would progress quickly from the lower level position offered to the higher level positions they were seeking to fill. The atmosphere was conversational as opposed to interrogative and both men were very nice, friendly and honest.

    No offer was made on-the-spot directly as it's this company's policy to funnel all offers through the HR department. However, they made it as clear as possible, ethically, that they wanted to extend an offer to me. I got the offer via HR 2 days later.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected was when they told me I was overqualified. If you really want a position, you need to be able and prepared to counter all potential rebuttals or misgivings they may have about you being the right person for the job.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Entry level position. No negotiation available.
