VOIP Engineer Interview

VOIP Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schlumberger in May 2014.

Interview Details – Schlumberger interview 5/22/2014—three weeks waiting time
with 4 person via conference number ID. Took approximately 55mins for the interview. Very detail voice interview.
I manage to answer all questions using the knowledge that I had for many years supporting voice. Very knowledgeable managers and engineer. Sound like a very good team to work for if hired. Crossing my fingers because I like to retire with Schlumberger. The interview did not cover the role or what they hiring for.
They said they putting the job on hold and could not find an exact person for the position. Please explain to the recruiters what you want please. Disappointed .

Field Engineer Intern Interview

Field Engineer Intern
Bakersfield, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Schlumberger in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and got an interview offer. Went to a basic information session the day before the interview.

Interview was completely behavioral based with a simple problem solving riddles where you explain your thought process. Interviewer didn't ask me if I had any questions and frankly seemed cold but I still got a second interview invitation in Bakersfield, CA.

Before you go to the interview you are assigned a random team of other attendees where you will have to work together to put on a presentation about a branch of Schlumberger. You will spend the first evening doing these presentations from 8PM to 3AM at the latest. Stay focused and ask a few questions. The second day you are up and touring some of the surrounding fields and facilities. You are given a lot of chances to ask questions and get close up to the technology they use.

Interview Question – You have 8 blocks and 7 are 1lb and 1 is 2lb. How do you figure out which one is 2lb if you can only use a scale twice?   View Answer
