Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Madison, WI) in March 2017.

Interview

A hiring manager visited a college campus where interview slots were given every thirty minutes. The hiring manager took applicants one by one into a personal interview with only him. He talked about the company and the expectations and then went over my resume and asked a mix of personality questions and trick questions.

    30 minute interview where I met with a former field engineer that talked about how it would be a rough 3 years before I could do anything else within the company, but how it was very educational and beneficial.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Lubbock, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First round interview was stressful, and involved a few brain teasers and basic conceptual questions. I have listed them in the interview questions section. It took about a week to get a response from my recruiter. I highly recommend going to a information session at your university before the interview, and introducing yourself to your recruiter this had a huge positive in my column.

    The second round interview took place in Oklahoma City for me, there where 15 other students from across the US, we flew into OKC the first afternoon where we started by doing some team-building exercises, presented a slide set with our groups that we had to prepare before attending the interview, and then listened to a presentation by some employees. This process took until around 3 am. We started the next morning at 7 am, and went to a job site to see a full scale of what one of the subsections looked like. We came back to the hotel for exit interviews, upon everyone completing their interviews we went to dinner and where released from the interview around 9. People who drove where free to go home, most of us went to a bar in town and hung out. The next morning you take your flight back to your original location, some flights where as early as 5 am.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Oklahoma City, OK) in October 2016.

    Interview

    There was a career fair at my university, where the recruiter came and talked about the company and conducted the standard behavioral interview. Then, there is an on site interview where you are with a group of potential hires. You are put into groups before and have to present on one of the different segments of Schlumberger. Next, they talk about the segments, filling in any missing details and about the work life. We then did a group activity that was fairly stress free. The next morning, we went to an actual oil field to see what the work was like and talked to the people on site to answer any questions you might have. We had lunch and an exit interview talking about which segment we would rather work in.
