    REMS Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Schlumberger in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started out with talking to one of the recruiters during career fair (was a huge line and waited for almost an hour until i was able to talk). This was almost a short mini interview and consisted of talking about what languages i'm good at (they seem to like C++, C#, Matlab) and then asked about projects i did in school or a internship. Although i didn't know then but from what i know now this part is important since each of the interviewers have a card that is marked 1-10 in terms of what they think of ur skill level and another box for "yes" or "no". At the end they will throw out all the no's and non 10's so do your best during this very short career fair mini interview that is about 5 - 10 min long. Also i strongly suggest waiting in the line with the interviewer that spends a lot of time with each person because everyone goes through candidates in different speeds. The more they let you talk the better

    Then I had a interview on my school campus that was 45 min long. Talked about the various projects i did, the technical aspects of it and what i am interested in and asked basic programming questions like stack/heap, virtual classes, etc. No paper and pen or white board.

    Then i got to the final stage. The interview is about 1.5 days. You arrive the day before during the afternoon. You get to check into your hotel and then you go on a 1 hour tour of the sugarland campus. Afterwards you have a dinner where you are given a presentation about the company and you are split into tables of your same majors. (mech, EE, CS) and there is at least 1 manager of the relevant field in each table. The manager on your table will be one of your interviewers the next day so its a good idea to get a good impression from him/her. After dinner you split into groups and do a team building exercise. In my case we had to build a catapult for marshmallows using pop sickle sticks, pencil, rubber bands, etc. Then you have a competition using it. The managers during this time will go around and see what everyone does. This event may be just for fun or they may be gauging you on team work and creativity i have no idea though.

    The next day, interview took place in the hotel, not on sugarland campus. All the candidates are broken into groups of their respective field/major. Then each person does a 7 min presentation on a past project one did with a room full of managers of your respective field with 3 min for questions at the end. Then there are four 45 min interviews with different managers and 15 min break in between. Each one asked different things. They like asking questions on projects you did, what classes you liked and why. What you look for in this company. They will also ask questions like "what was the coolest project you've seen?", "what do you think technology will be like 5, 10 years from now?" "what kind of version control do you use?". They asked basic questions on object oriented principles, threads, and stack/heap. They also asked for technical and design details regarding the project you have presented as well as basic behavioral questions: "leadership, managing time, organization, etc". This last phase of the interview had no white board or paper/pen coding. Make sure you think of questions for each one of the interviewers since they will always leave room for questions at the end. After this was done they had me fill out a feed back regarding interview process and was told i would hear back from 2-3 weeks. I heard back after 1 full week.

    Application Details

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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.
