    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    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?   2 Answers

    Interview

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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!

    Flown out to Bakersfield, CA. They keep you in a hotel and spend days interviewing, describing what they do and showing you the types of work they have out there. Very up front and blunt about the job hours and requirements, but in a helpful way. offered 60,000 to do open hole wireline

    Interview

    The interview was a weekend long process. A group of about 20 interviewees were flown out for the weekend. We were split up into five groups ahead of time and told to create a presentation based on the topic they assigned us. When we first arrived we spent the entire afternoon and evening giving presentations, being asked questions, and then being given the same presentation from the Schlumberger perspective. We were kept up until about 2:30 am and then we were told we needed to be ready to catch the bus to visit a job site at 7:30 am. After the job site tour we were given a presentation on the job benefits package and then we all had individual exit interviews. The entire weekend was extremely informative.

    I had experienced four steps until I got my offer. First, on the career fair, introduce yourself and hand on the resume. Second, you are asked to accomplish a paper test. Then you will have the group interview. At last, a group task

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Midland, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    They came to our campus, UT Austin, to recruit. They gave out A LOT of interviews. Basically the interviews were just like "why do you want to work for schlumberger" and "do you know what a field engineer is?" The first interview is basically just a screening process to see if you know what you're getting into. So if you say something like "i want to work in an office in houston" or something like that, you'll definite get rejected. After that they flew me out to midland for the "schlumberger experience". We're doing a group presentation about one of their service lines there and there will be recruiting managers there.

    Interview Questions

    • Where does a field engineer work? It's not a difficult question, but but it's basically just a screening question to make sure you're the right fit for the job.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Had a very easy interview. I was asked mainly behavioral questions. The interview was very laid back. I felt like I did great and now I am waiting to see if I made it through to the second interview.
