    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Screened and interviewed by external recruiter then had on-site interview with hiring manager and another manager. The interviewers were not prepared and had not reviewed my resume nor did they bring a copy to the interview. I was very turned off by the interviewers because the interview felt like a waste of time as they really did not ask any real type of interview questions.

    I applied online – interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    I was living in another state, but they flew me out for an interview. A few weeks later they sent me an offer, I negotiated it, and it was agreed upon. I then filled out a paper application, so they could get my info for a background check. After I passed the background check I drove to their location knowing I could pass the urine analysis, hair follicle test and breathalyzer. They kept me up in a hotel as I awaited the results and found a place to live.

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked a basic algebra question so pay attention.   Answer Question

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    After the normal 1st interview, which was on campus, I was selected to interview a 2nd time. This process meant you had to fly out to a location and go through a 2 day interview process.

    The interview included:

    As part of the interview process we would like you to prepare a short presentation (5-6 slides and about 5-6 minutes per each team) on the segment that you have been assigned (segment assignment is for presentation purposes only and will not affect potential employment assignment). You are welcome to use any resource of your choice (websites, books, etc). The Spreadsheet attached has your assigned segment and your group member contact information. If you have difficulty contacting any of your group members, let me know in advance!

    Segment Groups:
    1. D&M (Drilling & Measurements) and Pathfinder
    2. Wireline Open Hole Logging
    3. Well Cementing Services
    4. Wireline Cased Hole Services
    5. Hydraulic Fracturing Services
    6. Artificial Lift
    7. MI-SWACO

    Feel free to us the Schlumberger website, but please to use other resources as well. Your audience should be geared towards those who do not know anything about our business. An example of what to include in your presentation is:
    - What is the purpose of that segment?
    - How does it fit into the life cycle of a well?
    - What are the different services this segment provides?
    - What are different ways/techniques to perform these operations?
    - What is a typical equipment layout during a job in that segment?

    You will present on the evening of Day One. (We will meet at 6:00 p.m. in the conference room of the hotel). Recruiters and managers from different product lines will ask questions related to your presentation.

    As part of the interview we are planning to visit one of our bases and a well site. To do this, we will all have to wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). I recommend you to bring a comfortable set of clothes (comfortable pants/shorts and a t-shirt) to wear underneath the coveralls. If you own a pair of steel toe shoes/boots you can bring those.
