    EDFM Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sugar Land, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sugar Land, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Schlumberger in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    A friend of mine graduated college and applied per a former colleague's advice. He got the job and recommended I apply.

    After applying online, I was contacted within a few weeks by a recruiter who was very nice to speak with. I then spoke with the hiring manager who was slightly impersonal, and asked me to rate myself on about 30 different aspects of the potential eDFM Engineer position. The hiring manager must have liked my answers and invited me to fly down for an on-site interview.

    The on-site interview consisted of a 30-minute presentation of previous work experience in front of a panel of my to-be peers, followed by about 4-5 individual meetings with engineers already working in the eDFM role. Everyone was very nice, none of the questions were very difficult since I have been in this field for a number of years.

    Then began the waiting. I interviewed in September, but did not hear anything in regard to the job until mid-December. I had just about given up with any potential for the position even after multiple follow-ups with the recruiter, HR, and the hiring manager.

    Negotiation Details
    When the offer finally came in, I sent one final rebuttal back requesting slightly higher pay to cover the shock of the initial move as well as learning the area. The offer was very good compared to what I was doing at the time and the relocation package was decent, so I decided to pick up my family and move to Houston.

    One recommendation - if you own a house, negotiate sale of the home prior to moving. I failed to do this and have been struggling to make ends meet because of the mortgage that I have to pay, plus home rental in the Houston area. Also, be sure to get a quote for car insurance. I was hoping that the car insurance would be less than my previous residence, but it ended up doubling. All things to consider when taking a job somewhere else.

    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.
