Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Schlumberger.

Interview

Sent in my resume online through my university they contacted me after I was picked for an interview spot. Spots were very limited, most of my classmates did not get a spot. I signed up for a spot online. There was one single person interviewing and the interview was horrible. The interviewer was so tired they kept yawning and mixed up the questions. Moreover, they complained about how much they had to fly and what state they had to be in tomorrow. They could not answer my questions and knew nothing about geology. When I answered a question about my resume they didn't even type any of it in the computer and it was relevant to all sorts of skills. The interviewer barely typed anything I said at all and was just yawning the whole time.

Interview Questions

  • Name a time when you created something to solve a problem. Like if you had a flat tire and you fixed it with nothing but a paperclip and a string.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Schlumberger (London, England (UK)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    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.
