    Interview Details

    Schlumberger comes to Rice University every semester. Their appear on Career Expo, on info sessions and give on-campus interviews. Their appear an appealing exterior, so software students eagerly submitted their resumes and heavily prepared. However, unprofessionally, in their on-campus interview, both for full-time or intern, for software engineering, they never ask real technique questions, I mean, they ask basic concepts but not let you write codes. Seriously, from more than 10 computer science student I know who participated interviews, same scenario. It feels like they do not care about what you actually learnt what you can do, they care about how you bluff, just like how they bluff, that they beat Halliburton (vice versa, Halliburton said they beat Schlumberger). And finally, they strictly hire little, because they paid better than other oil-service software company in Houston. And you got no idea: why not me?

    Last hint for Rice students: Choose more Steven's Wong's courses, and Schlumberger might give you an offer without onsite.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schlumberger in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a very non-technical interview. An information session was held the day before the interview, and it seemed like a very nice place to work. During the interview, they just asked about my past classes and how I contributed to projects. They were just basic behavioral questions. Be set to impress though because they base their decision on one interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Schlumberger in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took over 6 months. They can move fast, but only if they want to.
    Usually the will have one to one interviews with the recruiter first, then introduce you to technical people in the field you will be working. If they want you they can make things happen pretty quickly, though you will have to go trough all the required checks: technical, medical, background checks etc. They will make you feel that you want to work for them, and that they are the best company to work for.

    Interview Questions
    • Would you be ready to relocate for your job? And eventually some technical questions, due to your field. But if you are confident about it you should be able to give them the right answer.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The final contract was worse as negotiated. They offered me an international one, and I ended up signing for a local one, as HR made me believe it's literally the same. It is not! So be careful!
