Wireline Field Engineer Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Schlumberger (Conway, AR) in April 2012.
Initial phone interview. Second interview in Arkansas where they get to know your personality through various team and individual exercises and even match you up with a specific service line by the end. Sometimes give you options as to your final location.
- Not many difficult questions. Have to give a presentation on a service line (basic and standard info off their site). 1 Answer
Only negotiation was as to where I would be assigned. Everyone starts at same base salary out of college.

I had to go through 3 Interview stages before i was hired, 1st was a group test and logical questions to assess your thinking, the test mainly included mathematical and mechanical problems including fluid and torque calculations. the second stage was an HR one to one interview, mainly you speak about yourself and they check if you are suitable for this type of field job. Third and final stage was another group meeting with all the candidates, where everyone is required to prepare and present himself in a 5-slide power point presentation mentioning his strengths , weaknesses, previous experiences and things that excite him in general.
- They really seamed to care about what you have been doing in the past as they are trying to get an idea of what kind of personality you are and how you reacted to tough situations. 1 Answer

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Schlumberger (Warsaw (Poland)).
The recruiter behaves really in a professional manner during the interview. In general he is really official, and questions with he/she gives are not that typical for ex. what was the most difficult experience in your life which you had to struggle with and stuff like that. Recruiter pays attention to everything even if you think he/she's not looking or listening to you, believe, he/she is!
First of all the interview starts with an IQ, Math, Physics, Electric and Mechanical test. All of them take like up to 5 hours. After the results you can come for f2f interview if you were good enough. Most often you have to assembly some mechanical part having some scheme in front (it's not named) and you're being asked multiple questions, they want to distract you and check the multitasking ability.Then there is some presentations about yourself, some weak and strong aspects and short description (prepare a good and simple one!) Then there is time fot team work. Most often you have to build something from paper, like an arch for example. There is only duck tape and paper :) limited number!
Then you have to wait for the decision and offer!
- There wasn't anything particularly difficult. Answer Question

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schlumberger in February 2012.
Applied for the Field Engineer position through my university. I was contacted and asked to do a one-on-one interview in my school's career centre where I met with the recruiter. It was very casual. The interviewer walked me through my resume, asked about my extracurriculars and interests. She had me do a puzzle (you have five sticks: 1", 2", 3", 4", and 5". How many triangles can you make?).
I was called back for a second interview where I was flown to the Calgary office for two days. We were all given a SLB topic and told to make a short powerpoint on it. The first evening eleven of us sat in a conference room and did team bonding exercises and ice-breakers, then listened to a million power points on benefits/job segments and stuff, and then presented our own powerpoint on a segment. The three interviewers grilled us. The purpose was to see how we reacted under pressure, and to see how much research we had done.
The next day we drove to a cased-hole wireline base and a frac-base to see what the field shops looked like. We were able to talk to some field employees about the jobs. On the drive back, we filled in a questionnaire detailing which segment we were interested in working for, location preferences, and provided feedback on the interview process. Once back in Calgary, we did final interviews with various managers at the head office, and then they took us out for dinner.
Since I had told the recruiter I had other offers, she let me know within two days that they were extending me an offer. I was offered a position in my segment of choice.

I did not negotiate the salary. SLB has a rigid program for new Field Engineer hires so salary is nonnegotiable.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Schlumberger (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in August 2008.
Communication skills, group activity and one on one interview. If you are short listed then you might be interviewed by segment operations manager.
They are looking for freshgrads mostly who would dedicate their first 3-8 years fulltime for the company. Positive attitude is a key factor. The recruiter would ask you to list 3-5 segments in which you are interested and they he would select the one he thinks which match your personality. Females secure the best segments mostly since the company is keen about increasing their ratio in the field and they would try hard to keep them. People with families must forget about their personal/family time as it does not exist in the first 8 years (more maybe).
