    Field Engineer Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Córdoba (Argentina)

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The company went to my University to recruit fresh engineers. A woman who was a former Field Engineer for the company took us an exam of maths, physics and fluids. Only those who approved that exam went to part 2 which was a personal interview with this woman. She asked me questions like: would you like to work in tough environments? Would you like to move to other countries? Would you like to spend more than 20 days working in the field? And so on.

    After that, I received an email in which I was told I passed to phase 2. This phase 2 was a 2 days activity which was held at Schlumberger facilities in another province (they paid for my flight tickets and accomodation for 2 days).
    Here we made 2 exams for which we were given some technical papers in order to learn overnight (bring coffee to keep awake). During the day we also made an english test and a reasoning-logical test. Then we were divided in three teams and we had to complete a task using just the materials and tools they provided us (keep open minded, talk with your team mates, don´t play the boss part all the time, take the iniciative, propose some ideas, etc).

    After that activity, we made the 2nd Teamwork activity: we were again divided in teams and each team had to go to the warehouse where there were some tools and materials (real ones, the ones you will use in the field) scattered all over the ground.
    The people of the company gave us a piece of paper containing the instruction of what to do and gave us 40 minutes to complete the task.
    Tips: here you have to play the "Leader Role" if you want to get the job. You have be proactive, you have to be able to identify exactly what you have to do, explain that to your mates and take the initiative to divide tasks among all of you.

    The last day was an oral presentation in front of high directives of the company. QUestions like: why did you choose your career? How that relates with you choosing Schlumberger as an employer? What are your plans for the next 5 years? Why did you choose Schlumberger? Etc.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Schlumberger in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Went to a job fair to hand in my resume and applied online. I think they want to see that you take the time to do both as well as be confident for the first impression.

    First, there was a phone interview which was basic questions like why did you choose engineering, why this university, describe a time when you had a conflict working with someone and a brainteaser. Everyone had a different brainteaser. I didn't get it right away... they just want to see that you follow through in your solution.

    Second, there was a group interview. We got in groups to figure out this logic problem and then had to build something to support an egg while it was dropped from the top of a building. We had to prepare a presentation in groups beforehand. They asked mostly safety questions after the presentation. I would suggest keeping everything simple. I would also suggest to ask questions since most of the interview was describing the segments and listening to presentations... they want to see that you're interested and engaged. They also watch you watching everything so act attentive and don't be on your cell phone. Take notes etc.

    Everything was simple just don't forget that even though its relaxed you are on an interview.

    Interview Details

    Good company, but the HRs are not those professionals, some of them came back from the field and with engineering background. So the best way to pass the interview is to organize your words in an scientific logic. Suit and tie are not necessary for field engineers because of their working environment.

    It's actually a pre-eliminary interview process. First they asked us to present something about random topic for bout two minutes, the topic is like: what do you think if your car broke down in the middle of nowhere, what do you think of women as an engineer, etc. The next part is the Skills test, the subjects are maths and basic physics (electrik, mechanics). then the third part is group discussion and HR interview. If you passed, you'll face the user interview and medical check up.
