Field Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gainesville, FL
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Gainesville, FL) in February 2016.

Interview

Met recruiters on campus during career showcase and was then offered an interview on campus a few weeks later. Interview was comfortable and a combination of behavioral questions and just conversation. Good interview overall. After this first interview, I was offered a second interview on site at one of the drilling locations. I did not accept the invitation for my visit.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schlumberger (University Park, PA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and received an on-campus interview for the Field Engineer position. The interview was supposed to be 30 minutes long. It turned into 45 minutes with two different interviewers (one was asked to leave the interview she was conducting early just to talk to me). The male interviewer informed me he would get a bonus if he hired me (I am female) and was very pushy about asking if I had any reservations about the position. I was asked no questions during the interview. It was extremely unprofessional. I was offered an on-site interview despite clearly stating I was not interested in the position.

    Interview

    The interview process is two staged. The first is with someone on the HR team. I did not get into the second round but for that, one would have to go to the HQ sites and be interviewed by a larger recruitment team. jg

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview

    Very simple application process. I simply applied online and was invited to a day long assessment centre. The assessment enter took the format of logic based tests, a short personal presentation followed by 1:1 interviews. The interview comprised of an informal chat following some standard questions and included having to put together a pressure regulator valve from a component drawing.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed at a career fair at a conference, almost two weeks later heard back to do a second interview in Midland Tx. This interview was 3 days long. Had to give a presentation with other candidates, and for the first night just learned as much as possible about the company and position. The HR (former field engineers) were great and super personable. They could be tough though. Did a timed team project and it was a very long night. They're basically seeing your work ethic and if you can work long hours and how well you work with people. Second day you go out to an oil rigg and then later that evening is the exit interview. Only 10 mins long and basically ask what you're interested in and what type of field engineer you want to be. Got an offer about two weeks later.

    Reasons for Declining

    I'm the type of person that likes to travel and wants a serious relationship within the next few years and they said you won't have time for that. I accepted a different offer that was closer in location where I wanted to be and the work I wanted to be doing. Still a great company with a lot of hard workers!

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schlumberger in November 2015.

    Interview

    I got an interview at a career fair. When I arrived, the guy was having a conversation on his phone while I just sat there for about 5 minutes. He was very focused on whether or not I was willing to relocate. The entire "interview" felt more like an interrogation.

Also their training program for REMS (research engineering manufacturing and sustaining) at the product center is becoming more mature and well established. - The broad technical and worldwide culture that the company offers is excellent if you consider yourself a global citizen with an inclination for exploring a wide array of technical disciplines.” – Full Review
