    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Sugar Land, TX).

    Interview

    First I had an interview for a field engineer position on campus. Troubleshooting seemed to be a good talking point. I then proceeded to a group interview at their Sugar Land campus. At the time, I was again being interviewed for a field engineer position. We had to make a pipe cleaner bridge and perform other group tasks. I just tried to be myself, get along with the other candidates, ask a few questions about the company, be reasonably energetic, and show some genuine interest in the company and its work, casually assuring the interviewers that I could handle a job that wasn't 9-5, was outdoors, etc. It doesn't hurt to mention hobbies that require mechanical aptitude or hands on / outdoors experience. At the end of the interview, they asked me if I would be more interested in their tech and field program where you would work for 2 years in the field and then move to a technology center or a regular field engineer position. I said I'd be more interested in the tech and field program. Several months passed, with no communication and then a recruiter called with an offer to come work at their Sugar Land Technology center.

    Interview Questions

    • Provide a brief speech (~5 - 10 min) in front of other candidates, introducing yourself and mention why you want to work for Schlumberger.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They asked me through an email what I thought was a competitive starting salary. I was able to send a link to my school's career services website that had salary information for my degree. I think I worded my response X-Y is the range of offers for my degree, I would feel well compensated if I could begin at $$$. They started me at what I asked for. This was a while ago. One may have less leverage if the economy isn't that good.
