    Sustaining Engineer Interview

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

    I applied online - interviewed at Schlumberger in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met with a recruiter at a career fair and we kicked it off, they really fun and personable, and gave them my resume. They contacted me to let me know there'd be an on campus recruiting event in a few weeks, at which I spoke to him and some other recruiters and had some fun speaking with them. By the time they interviewed me I had spoken with them a lot and we went through my resume fairly quickly. It seemed like a major question for them was whether I'd be fine with spending the summer in houston, which I was fine with.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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 .
