    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview with Schlumberger in which we discussed my past experiences and went over basic behavioral/interest questions. I connected well with the interviewer; she had a similar research background and enjoyed her time at Schlumberger. I was invited to interview in Sugar Land (Houston), Texas, for positions in REMS - Research, Engineering, Manufacturing, Sustaining. At the interview I was asked to give a 7-minute presentation (10 slides or fewer) explaining a technical project to Schlumberger leadership with a few minutes of questions. Afterward, I had 4 one-on-one interviews with managers from across Schlumberger REMS. One day later I received an offer for a position in Houston within the Engineering group with two weeks to respond.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer placed a couple drawings on the desk and asked me to describe the function of the device. What was the material? Where would there be a possibility of mechanical failure? Then, he clarified the purpose of the machinery and asked what design considerations were important. He specifically asked me about design alterations or choices that catered to my background (thermal fluids).   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I was nervous about becoming just a "number" in a massive company. I was skeptical about the rigid and impersonal advancement process. I felt the recruitment process was very one-sided. Upon receiving the offer, I knew nothing about the potential team or technology that I would be working with. I was offered a position based on Schlumberger's needs, not necessarily my interests.

    Interview

    Initial contact seemed to go smooth from an info session I attended at an on-campus recruiting, and I was contacted for an interview. This interview experience may not apply to everyone, but my interviewer was not very friendly or eager to find out about me. This quickly created a very uncomfortable atmosphere, and becoming worse with everything I said in regards to her question, about myself, etc. I had thought I said my words very carefully, but the response felt I received was something of indifference and discontent, but I think she was just tired and did not care too much. As a result I made mistakes on easy technical questions that I usually would have gotten.
