Mechanical Engineer REMS Interview

Mechanical Engineer REMS
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Schlumberger in November 2013.

Interview Details – I went to career fair at my University in the month of september'13. Dropped in my Resume. Later attended the info session and got an email for the first on-campus round. The interview was totally behavioral with basic technical questions.
After 3 weeks got a mail from them that I was selected and was invited to Sugarland centre ( Nov 5th'13)for the second & final interview. The first day was a little disappointing as due to bad weather we couldn't tour the sugarland campus but the night was fun. Had dinner with the recruiting and other officials included introductions, a team game etc.

Next day had 4 45 min interviews, they were pretty good, some were technical he showed me a part design and asked about it mostly GD&T. Others were trying to assess where I would fit the best. After the process I felt pretty confident. After 2 weeks I get a mail that I was selected. Yayyy!!!

Was my first interview and i cracked it :)

REMS (Research, Engineering, Manufacturing, and Sustaining) Mechanical Engineer Interview

REMS (Research, Engineering, Manufacturing, and Sustaining) Mechanical Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schlumberger in October 2013.

Interview Details – After a behavioral interview on campus, I was invited to fly down to Houston to interview at Schlumberger's Rosharon campus. I was given a 90 minute tour and then asked to give a 7 minute research presentation on my Master's research. Afterwards I had 4 45 minute interviews with project leaders. The interviews were casual, and I was allowed to take them in any direction I liked. I found success by talking through some of my previous designs, making full use of the whiteboards in the interview rooms. They were very conversational interviews. Others in my group were asked some specific questions, however, including "calculate the height of a oil pipe that would fail under its own weight" and "calculate the pressure at the bottom of a column of liquid". The most difficult task others were asked to do was to demonstrate their knowledge of GD&T by explaining a part drawing that was given to them.

Interview Question – Demonstrate your knowledge of GD&T by explaining a mechanical part drawing that is given to you on the spot.   View Answer

Mechanical Engineer Interview

Mechanical Engineer
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Schlumberger in March 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for internship but they suggested I should apply for entry level and I accepted. I applied on campus and had interview the same week on campus. The interviewer was very nice and she talked mostly. Then I received an email about a second interview in Houston, Texas. It was for three days. The first day program started around 6 pm. there was some group activity. the second day we visited different department of the center at Houston the whole day. You can ask question if you have any for each department. The third and last day was a presentation followed by 2 hours interview(with 4 different real technical people/ no HR personnel). During presentation there was over 15 real technical people/ engineers and they ask questions on your presentation( what did you do/ what would you do if this happen, what was the result ...). I think it was 7-11 minutes presentation and 3 minutes question and answer. The interview was 30 minutes with each person. question from your resumes on your projects and internships. After that you fly home. Don't wait for them to reply to you soon because they won't. I got replay after a month or so and it was only 1 and a half line which says I didn't get the job. The email was sent automatically and they didn't even have the courage to write.

And today one of my friend who got interview like me and went through the same process told me he didn't get the job. His application was for field engineer and mine was R&D. He applied after me around May 2013 and I applied around beginning of March 2013. He got response after 3 months of waiting.

If you apply for Schlumberger, I suggest don't even put your hope on them for a second.

As much as I don't want to say this, but I think Schlumberger is one big racist company (Black people) who seek opportunities in the upper level....sad ... sad
