Field Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Schlumberger in January 2014.

Make presentations in teams about drilling. Be a team player, that's what they like to see. Go to site and ask questions. Be engaged. If you are in good standing, and do all of that, they will pick you. Try to apply to positions that actually interest you. Easier to talk about.

I applied through a recruiter and 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 .
