    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview in which they asked me typical interview questions, as well as whether "I even really want this job". Their tactic seemed to be intimidation. I got the second interview and then flew me to OKC for a 2 day interview with 15 or so other candidates. The activities started in the evening, where we met and got to know one another. They then presented information on Schlumberger and the different types of field engineering. They kept us up until 3 AM and we had to be on the bus the next morning to visit a rig site. We had exit interviews in the evening of the second day, then they brought us to dinner and then we were free to leave.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Ankara (Turkey)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 3 day process. Including me, ten new graduates were invited to the interview. A lady who is the recruiter, presented a presentation about the company, the benefits of being part of schlumberger, health and safety issues etc. In the second day we presented a fifteen minutes presentation about ourselves. At the end of the presentation we were asked several questions depending on our presentations. In the last day there was a group job at which we tried to build a bridge with a limited material. It is supposed to be around 1.2 meter high and 40 cm long. I dont remember the exact numbers and it is made from paper. Later on there was a 1 to 1 interview at which we were given a pressure gauge that was dismantled and we were supposed to put the parts together in a given time.

    Schlumberger Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Austin, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The engineer was interviewing me. He was a bit rude to me during the interview. He gave me this feeling “You are not qualified for this position.” I mean I am not even a employee of Schlumberger and he is just an interviewer. I think he should have been rude like that. The interview was just him asking me about my resume. I was very discouraged during the interview. They did not send me any rejection email afterwards.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Norman, OK).

    Interview

    Started with an online application through my university's career services site, which was rejected. I showed up at the information session with a resume and told the recruiter they had made a mistake by rejecting me. The recruiter laughed, took my resume, and gave me an interview slot. Second interview was a few days after the first, then a field visit to a rig site was the final step. Those who managed to stay up all night & complete the various tasks were the ones hired. SLB rejects around 90% of those who apply.
