I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX) in March 2009.
The interview was completely non-technical. The objective was to evaluate personality traits, such as ability to handle stress, work in a multi-cultural society and tough field environment. The conversation is largely vague and conventional behavioral questions are asked. It helps to prepare for the interview by thinking of illustration of personality traits associated to the resume. It helps have a detailed resume and it isn't uncommon for the interviewer to walk-through the entire resume and experience.
