    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    Setting up the interview was straight forward, however I was left with the strong feeling that I needed to put money up for airfair (with the unsaid understanding that I would be reimbursed after the fact). The interview was a marathon starting at 9 AM with a presentation and Q&A. After that I spoke with 5 people 1:1 about 1/2 hour and also had tours of the research site, etc. After 5 PM, I had a little break and met with a group of people including the hiring manager for dinner. We wrapped up discussions around 10:30 PM. One of the most uncomfortable moments I had was during a discussion with the HR rep. This discussion occured in a conference room over the phone with my "handler" within earshot. The rep. asked some pretty "sensitive" questions about myself and my family.

    Interview Questions
    • HR asked me about my family, was I married, did I have any children, etc. It was so totally unexpected and not related to the job at all. I was caught off guard and felt that the line of questioning was inappropriate as well as the amount of pressure exerted to get an answer out of me.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Schlumberger in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Everything is a test, be ready to stay awake for 24 out of 30 hours. take naps when you can, but never around the interviewers or anyone who currently works for them, be very interested and involved otherwise they don't see you as a good "fit"

    on the same note, if it does not seem like a good fit - DON'T TAKE THE JOB, there are many other jobs with more forgiving hours and better work/life balances

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Schlumberger in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I learned about Schlumberger at my campus career fair. Their recruiters were very laid back and approachable. A seminar like meeting was set up with all accepted interviewers where they gave an overview of the company and employment process On campus interviews were short, if accepted you were sent to a 3 day intense interview process a few weeks later.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked to describe a time I didn't agree with the majority of a group and how I handled the situation. It caught me off guard during the interview, but I liked that they didn't stick to the generic interview process.   Answer Question

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Schlumberger in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Process was agile and went on site for several rounds. I had a couple of phone screens, both in english and spanish. I went on site to meet the team, and it all went well. The recruiter told me I was practically hired, they just wanted to bring me back on site to meet some director, which I'm guessing was the reason to which I did not get an offer.

    Overall I didnt like his approach to conducting the interview. He was borderline rude, unlike the recruiter with whom I spoke several times with and we hit it off right away (same with the rest of the team), but this guy was not fully convinced for some reason.

    Interview Questions
    • Got all sorts of unexpected questions such as how much are you currently making, would you take the job if I payed you 50% less, etc   Answer Question
