    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Schlumberger in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was really nice and informative. He asks the basic questions on your resume but the phone interview is hard to hear if your connection isn't great so try hard to pay attention. A little stressful but nothing too hard. I thought I was panicking but apparently not cause the interview went well.

    Applications Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Schlumberger in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Randstad Technologies and interviewed with Schlumberger two days later. According to the recruiter, Schlumberger was very interested in meeting me to interview, but the feeling was otherwise once I arrived there and it was very obvious. The hiring manager was not aware of recruiters who were sending me to interview there and had no idea what agency they were from. The interviewer was middle eastern and had poor english, along with bad understanding of questions that I asked during the interview. The interviewer basically asked me questions about work experience that I do not possess, neither indicated on my resume, as well as NOT being listed in the job description, which was a way of blackballing me from being hired. The interviewer came out and said that they have not been able to hire anyone after interviewing eight candidates in two weeks for the job and I see why. Schlumberger is expecting "perfect" candidates, which does not exist in the corporate world, as well as not having competent staff to interview candidates. Also, I noticed that 98% of the staff there were foreigners and it seems as though Schlumberger predominantly hires foreigners. After interviewing that day and doing some research on Schlumberger reviews, I came across several that express the same experience about not being a diverse company to work for by former Schlumberger employees. I was very excited to interview with Schlumberger, but after the experience, I have lost interest in working for Schlumberger and would rather go to a competitor like Halliburton, KBR, Waetherford, or Technip.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an on-campus interview with Schlumberger in which we discussed my past experiences and went over basic behavioral/interest questions. I connected well with the interviewer; she had a similar research background and enjoyed her time at Schlumberger.

    I was invited to interview in Sugar Land (Houston), Texas, for positions in REMS - Research, Engineering, Manufacturing, Sustaining. At the interview I was asked to give a 7-minute presentation (10 slides or fewer) explaining a technical project to Schlumberger leadership with a few minutes of questions. Afterward, I had 4 one-on-one interviews with managers from across Schlumberger REMS.

    One day later I received an offer for a position in Houston within the Engineering group with two weeks to respond.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer placed a couple drawings on the desk and asked me to describe the function of the device. What was the material? Where would there be a possibility of mechanical failure? Then, he clarified the purpose of the machinery and asked what design considerations were important. He specifically asked me about design alterations or choices that catered to my background (thermal fluids).   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    I was nervous about becoming just a "number" in a massive company. I was skeptical about the rigid and impersonal advancement process. I felt the recruitment process was very one-sided. Upon receiving the offer, I knew nothing about the potential team or technology that I would be working with. I was offered a position based on Schlumberger's needs, not necessarily my interests.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview, half technical questions and half behavioral. I believe it was just 1 round, but am not sure as I did not get an offer. Overall friendly, but the interviewer did seem judgmental when I could not answer a technical question. Make sure you know basic technical skills and graphs.
