    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Schlumberger interview 5/22/2014—three weeks waiting time
    with 4 person via conference number ID. Took approximately 55mins for the interview. Very detail voice interview.
    I manage to answer all questions using the knowledge that I had for many years supporting voice. Very knowledgeable managers and engineer. Sound like a very good team to work for if hired. Crossing my fingers because I like to retire with Schlumberger. The interview did not cover the role or what they hiring for.
    They said they putting the job on hold and could not find an exact person for the position. Please explain to the recruiters what you want please. Disappointed .

    Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a video call. It went for as long as an hour. It was very smooth and easy. A LOT of questions were asked and a lot was discussed. The recruiter who seemed very curt through emails was not curt actually, it was only the style in email communication.

    Video call:
    Even though I was told it is a behavioral interview, it ended up being technical too. I was asked a lot of questions on my courses too. I didn't mind it, since I knew everything from my coursework. In 2-3 days I got the email for a round 2 interview, which will be in person with the managers.

    In-person interview:
    They flew me to the office to interview. This interview was only 15 mins long (seemed like a lot of money spent for 15 minutes interview)! The manager was really cool and it was a fun discussion. It seemed like they had already made up their mind during the first interview and they only wanted to see me in person.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were easy. Nothing was unexpected. There were questions like:
      Situational questions (something similar to STAR approach).
      Then questions about suppliers, the selection process, supplier performance evaluation.
      The only one question I could not answer and should have been able to:
      What areas in you require improvement?
      (Basically they were asking what are your negativities that can be improved)
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation phase and I did not initiate any negotiation. Was happy to have received the internship.
