    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Sugar Land, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Resume submission through Rigzone. 30 minute phone interview. 2nd interview in person at corporate office. The second interview was a panel interview with the hiring manager and the recruiter. The hiring manager was cordial. The recruiter was unprofessional, condescending and combative (I got a bad recruiter on this one. If you get a different recruiter your experience will be different from mine). The hiring manager and recruiter were discussing other internal candidates and hiring needs during my interview. The recruiter spoke to the hiring manager about me in third person and said that my skill level was that of a receptionist. I was made an offer, but the offer was $6.00 - $9.00 an hour less than was discussed in our initial phone interview. Needless to say I declined.
    Schlumberger is on my top 20 list of large companies to work for in Houston. I still believe Schlumberger is a good company. Unfortunately, my experience in this interview is a reflection of two people operating on their own outside of Schlumberger standards. Candidates should still apply to Schlumberger.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Process is complicated. All handled through HR which means local management cannot hold interviews at the shop. Harder to hire locally. Most people are hired from out of state these days and are made false promises. Plus most eventually will quit to move back home.
