    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I got the first interview through my university career fair. I had an interview on campus. Basic questions about thing son resume and behavioral questions. After 2 weeks(exactly) heard back for a 2nd round on their site. We were flown and driven there. Nice accommodation and hotel arrangements. We then met at a hotel, they gave a presentation about the company. Then we had a group activity(the usual; making a catapult). It was just for fun and team building. Don't think they were judging anything coz only recruiters came to the event, no managers. Next day, we left for the company early morning. We had our presentations which was pretty easy. The questions asked in the end were very simple and straightforward. The managers had no expressions on their face !! We then had 4 one on one interviews . Basic questions about past experiences. Some asked rapid fire lean questions. So be prepared with definitions of the basic Lean terminology. We also went on a quick tour of the plant. Was not like what I expected. It was rushed and fast. I was told I would hear back in 2 weeks. I didn't and my follow-up e-mails were ignored. I finally got through them after 4 weeks to know that even though they liked me, they weren't going to hire because of the problems in the oil and gas industry. It was a disappointment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Schlumberger (College Station, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Asked me very generic questions and had me work through two logic based problem solving questions. The interviewer was very methodical in asking me the questions and made notes on everything that I answered. She was not the most talkative and simply asked questions without carrying on a conversation to my responses.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview

    So far, I've only had a first round interview. I would describe the interviewer as a seasoned veteran of the company who has experience in possibly every aspect of the field. In the two days I had contact with him (info session and interview) he had a lot of knowledge and experience to impart. To be honest, it was a privilege. The interview itself was extremely relaxed. He had specific questions to ask about my fortitude and to ensure I would fit in, and that was about it. It seemed like the fastest half hour of my life. I hope it was easy because my resume spoke for itself and he already decided he liked me, but that's just speculation, and possibly wishful thinking. He replied to me and thanked me before I could even thank him. Very very impressed. I want to work for this company. I will update as the process hopefully continues. I have not received an offer yet, interview was only yesterday. I still need to be invited to and pass a second round.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview

    Businsss professional on campus. Typical situation based questions and others about why are you interested in this position,. Never a personal response that was promised for 2 weeks later. interviewer was fairly nice. Speaking to employee at career fair definitely helped me get interview. They asked me to choose a specific route with in the engineering intern program and I was rather ambiguous with might have hurt me. Try to emphasize you are interested in staying with them for ththe long run.
