    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was very interesting & different compared to a 9-5 job. You immediately sense that you aren't applying for a traditional job; rather, you're honored to have been selected to have an opportunity to a unique career path - one full of opportunities, challenges, and personal development. It's not for everyone but they disclose all the downsides of the fixed-step program.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX) in March 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was completely non-technical. The objective was to evaluate personality traits, such as ability to handle stress, work in a multi-cultural society and tough field environment. The conversation is largely vague and conventional behavioral questions are asked. It helps to prepare for the interview by thinking of illustration of personality traits associated to the resume. It helps have a detailed resume and it isn't uncommon for the interviewer to walk-through the entire resume and experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of an instance where you have worked with little or no guidance/instruction.   Answer Question
    • If you believe your boss is wrong , how would you tell him?   Answer Question
