    Interview Details

    Called for an on-campus interview after the career fair. First-round interview as basic questions about behavior and how you work in teams. They never got back to me for a second-round, so i assume it went nowhere. Overall the interview was pretty easy and only around 20 minutes long. They were friendly and were interested in you.

    It was a pretty standard procedure. They asked about things on your resume and if you can handle long working hours. There were two interviewers and both were very nice. One of the interviewer did most of the asking, while the other would just take notes

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    The 1st interview at my university's career fair was standard and did not get very technical. The 2nd interview, however, was designed to make new hires realize that the working hours will be difficult and that if you like being in touch with your family, this isn't the job for you. There are lots of hands-on team building exercises and minimal sleep over the 2.5 days.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    The process started with talking to recruiters at my university career fair, and I was invited to an on-campus interview one week after. The on-campus interview consisted of pretty standard behavioral questions. After passing the 1:1 interview, I was invited to an on-site, three-day interview that consisted of a group presentation, team problem solving challenges, facility and site tours, and a 1:1 exit interview. They try to see how well you respond to unfamiliar situations and challenges, as well as to see if you can function on as little sleep as possible.

    Interview Details

    Started with an on-campus interview where most questions were basic character questions you'd encounter at any interview. They did through one problem solving question out at me though. This is for the field so make sure you seem eager about getting your hands dirty and that you recognize that working for this company is a completely different lifestyle.

    The second interview is where they fly you out with a group of other field engineer prospects. They give you a ton of information about the different segments in the company. You give a group presentation over one of them. You get to go out to a rig and see the equipment. The exit interview at the end is only 10/15 min and they basically just want to know which segment you want to work for and why.

    • Say you have a beaker of 8 ml that is full of water, and a 3 ml and 5 ml beaker that are empty. There are no measurement markings on any of the beakers. How would you measure out exactly 4 ml of water in the 8 ml beaker?   View Answers (2)

    Went to my school career fair and talked to Schlumberger. After that, they scheduled me an on campus interview. The interview was short and did not consist of any behavioral questions like I expected. They just went over my resume and asked me if I had any questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to an international career fair on campus and I talked to the SLB recruiter and I gave him my résumé. He requested me to apply online so he can get the application so he can process it for the first interview. The interview was done two days after the initial meeting on campus and pretty much went well. I was basically asked some general questions about my résumé and if I was interested in the position applied. I was told then I was nominated for the second interview in Texas. About two weeks prior to the interview I was sent some documentations to fill out and sign. Flying and accommodation is covered by the company. One week before the interview, I was sent an agenda for what we will do during the second interview session. My interview will be next week so hopefully everything will go smoothly! I haven't offered anything yet so that's why I answered NO to the question below! I will know by next week and hopefully I will get hired!
