I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Schlumberger (Austin, TX) in February 2015.
Submitted my resume through our college career fair and they contacted me a couple of weeks later with an opportunity for an interview. Interview went for about thirty minutes and was all behavioral. Went over parts of my resume then talked about things such as how much coding I do outside of classes. I asked about what some ongoing projects were at Schlumberger. Interviewer was very nice and said it looked positive. Received a rejection for the interview about 4 weeks after the interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX) in October 2014.
On campus interview, half technical questions and half behavioral. I believe it was just 1 round, but am not sure as I did not get an offer. Overall friendly, but the interviewer did seem judgmental when I could not answer a technical question. Make sure you know basic technical skills and graphs.
