Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger in February 2017.

Interview

Applied online via the Schlumberger careers page. Was then invited to an assessment day 1 month later. The day lasted from 09:00 to 17:30 and consisted of aptitude tests, group exercise, presentations and an individual interview. The day was enjoyable and the interviewers done a question and answer session before lunch which was good.

The individual interview only lasted 30 minutes and was primarily based on my CV which they had beside them. I'm still waiting to hear back regarding my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Gatwick, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    CV only, which was a plus. Positive phone interview. Tell me about yourself. A time when you had a conflict in a team. Invite to AD a few days after. Had to do a 5 min presentation, very straightforward. Interviewer seemed to really like it. Then team exercise. Then individual interview, was going well until the interviewer asked me about my a level grades (not good) and why I hadn't pursued an internship during uni, which threw me. Lovely people though.

    Interview

    There were a range of things to complete including psychometric testing, a presentation about yourself and to answer pre-set questions using powerpoint and a face to face interview. It was overall a good experience and the interviewers were absolutely lovely people!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview

    Sent off CV and got a response within a week; invited to Assessment Centre.

    The assessment day was quite typical; presentation, logic tests (do revision on different types of psychometric logic tests) group exercise and one-on-one interview.
    Nothing extremely difficult..

    However, quite a bad HR department. Some people from the interview didn't hear back about negative results until they personally called the department after almost 2 months. It seems most of the positions were already filled while we interviewed the assessment centre.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Schlumberger in August 2014.

    Interview

    Online application, then an invite to assessment centre.

    Assessment centre quite laid-back, they seem to observe your personality and whether you would suit the role. Then a one-on-one interview is given to round off the day. Make sure you are well adept with competency questions and have lots of examples where you demonstrate it.

    A major con: No feedback is offered at any stage of the recruitment, even after interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was invited to the assessment centre in Aberdeen where a full day event was conducted.
    The day started with 3 psychometric tests, these were unlike others I have seen in the industry where the first was a logic sequence, however in a 3x3 grid with 1 square missing, the 2nd was a circuit like problem where different components altered the shape going through it in terms of size, colour and shape type this was fairly easy, the last test was also component based and fairly logical.
    After a break we worked in a group to make a structure out of paper we could all stand under. We had lunch and then there were pre prepared presentations from all candidates and individual interviews.
    The staff were fairly friendly, however a more holistic approach would have been better rather than telling people to leave after not scoring well in the tests which is quite intimidating.

    Interview Questions

    • The psychometric tests were unexpected.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schlumberger (London, England (UK)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    2 days interview process, very structured, they are looking for people who are tough and take a challenge head on. There are tests, presentations, drinking, its a weird experience. Everyone is an engineering graduate, and you kind of bond a bit over the hard and weird testing. I think 2 people out of the 30 or so were offered a job at the end.

    • They asked me to assemble a air regulator with a really bad set of instructions. They timed me as well   1 Answer
