    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger (University Park, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very basic interview with completely behavioral questions. The interviewer was very calm and collective and made the entire process very easy and comfortable. There were many students at my university with interviews so at times I felt as if the interviewer was rushing to get through us and move on to the next person, so sometimes it felt as if he was interrupting to go on to the next question when I would be trying to elaborate further.

    Asked mostly common behavioral questions. Ex) Tell me a little about yourself, what are your strengths and weaknesses, tell me a time you had to fight through adversity. Overall the interview process was 30-40 min long and they ask you questions from a series of written questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Broussard, LA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Long and very dragged out process. The interview was pretty quick, but all the checks and back ground and drug screens, medical screens, fit for duty test took all together about 30 days total. Then two weeks of training classes before you even begin to get to work. Long process but worth it at the end.

    Interview

    Sent in my resume through the university website, was contacted a few weeks later to schedule a possible phone interview. The conference call solution they were using was faulty so they asked me to come in for an on-site interview instead. Met with the product manager and project manager for the task I would be starting on and they asked me questions about my previous experiences.
