    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Schlumberger in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Met a recruiter at a school career fair and had a next-day interview. Initially, the recruiter was most interested in my undergraduate course work, particularly quantitative/math courses. The interview was relaxed and we mostly talked about my internship experience. I was interested in finding a summer internship and she was looking more for full time employees. She encouraged me to apply for full-time. She was surprisingly disparaging of other interviewees she had talked to. I thought it was somewhat unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • She asked me a GRE-type question as a problem-solving question. How many degrees are between the two hands of a clock at a particular time. I had no trouble as I was studying for the GRE at the time.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Schlumberger in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was a lengthy and a bit frustrating, eventually yielding no result. Had two telephone interviews and two panel interviews all with their offices in four different countries. Overall, the people seemed friendly, nice office space and a relaxed work environment. It seems like a good company to work with regardless.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    Met Schlumberger at university's career fair and gave them my resume. About 3 or 4 weeks later they contacted me and set up an interview for the following week. Interview consisted of some standard questions mixed in with many of the questions brought up here on glass door which are quite difficult. Questions such as "What is your best McGyver moment," and a brain teaser.
