    Field Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    One of the best experiences to go through as an entry level engineer, the recruiters were field engineers before too and they invited other engineers to talk about the segments they worked on and the type of training and hour of work they had. they make sure they tell you, this job is not for everyone, it is 3 year of training and learning with working at least 80 hours a week and can get up to few days to few weeks if the job is not done. also, they told us some of their hard times were they had to stay more than 3 weeks next to the rig until the job was done.

    my first interview was a normal quick behavioral questionnaire phone interview. they are just trying to make sure that you understand what are applying for.
    the second interview started around 6 pm with everyone introducing themselves then we talked about all the segments have openings available, with presentation from the us about segments we were asked to prepare for as groups or by engineers came to introduce those segments. we kept going until 4 am.
    the next day we woke up at 7, had a quick breakfast then got in a bus to visit the testing labs. we had a long tour from 8 am- 3 pm, looking over multiple labs and visiting a testing rig. after that, we went back to the hotel for exit interview and choosing the segment we want to be working for. then we went to eat and we were free to go home.

    Interview Questions

    • why do you think you will be good for this segment? and why would choose working > 80 hour in a field over 40 hours office job?   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I got contacted by the recruiter and got aninterview very fast. The Lady who interviewed me did not talk to me between Lobby and interview room which made the lift ride quite akward. The questions were all about negative examples of my current Job and how I have overcome them. I was not interested in the Job and they were not interested in me The chemistry with the Manager was just off from the very first moment. I amsure it is for someone, but the personalities clearly did not match

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The process was pleasant. I went the info section on campus and hand in my resume. Most students who went to the info section had already gotten an interview the next day(They probably got it during career fair). I got a email later that day that ask me I can come to interview the next day. The interview was only one on one for about 45 minutes. Most of the questions are about my projects(Maybe couple behavioral questions, but should be easy enough that I don't remember).

    I got an email couple days later asking me for onsite interview at Houston, TX. The trip was two days. First day included a tour of the sugar land campus, dinner with some of the engineers who are going to interview us the next day. The first day was casual and lots of social. The second day include one presentation and 4, one hour, one on one interview. The interviewer are generally from your area. some of them may not familiar with your expertise, so they will ask for behavioral questions. The ones who know your area will ask your more technical questions. Every interview were more like an conversation. It reduced a lot of the nervousness. Just do a review what you learnt and what you presented. I mess up one question about one part of my project(and it was asked), technical question. I think that was my biggest deduction of the whole interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Multi stage interview process. Found Schlumberger at a career fair, had a great conversation, and went to their info session the next day (I think this is very important). Two weeks later, I was called in for an on-campus interview, which pretty much consisted of going through my resume. Two weeks after that, I was flown out to Houston for an interview there. The first day was just a site tour and an info session (pretty much the same one as before). The next day was a 7 minute presentation, followed by four 30-45 minute interviews. These were both technical and behavioral. Within two weeks, was offered a full time position.
