Junior Field Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Norman, OK
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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of a number of stages and all the interviewers were very friendly which makes the process less daunting. It consists of a basic phone interview, a group activity, a 1:1 interview and a final 7 day field exposure where you would have to give a presentation at the very end. Personally the only tough part of the interview for me was the final presentation (varies; depending upon the interviewing managers). All the interviews took place at different days/time. So it is not as tiring as Shell's Recruitment Day (SRD).

    Junior Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bogotá, Bogota (Colombia)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Bogotá, Bogota (Colombia)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Is a long process, first I applied online and by the university jobs portal. Then I have scheduled a numerical test (done with several dozens of colleagues of the university), is a test of 40 questions of basic sciences and math operations without calculator (and several decimals)... after passing that filter, the best results of the test got a personal interview in english.
    A month after that, I got called for the "round 2" in Bogotá, when I got 2 days in the city with full expenses by the company. Is a hard course when our personal relationships and team work is thoroughly evaluated. We made a tour for the company, got many types of exams... but we also had fun. Is a great experience.
    My best advice is Be yourself.
    The thing is that they make recruitment process without vacancys to fill, the candidates will eventually get located in function of their abilities showed on the round 2. It has been two months since the round 2, and I haven't got any call, but I'm still awaiting. I got an email telling me I've pass for the recruitment process.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online. Two weeks later, received a phone call for an HR interview scheduled for two days later.

    HR interview went well, ~45 minutes long, typical behavioural interview. Received a phone call the morning after for a manager interview, scheduled it for that afternoon.

    Manager interview lasted 5 minutes. Couldn't tell if it went extremely well or extremely bad, but I was expecting the interview process to end here.

    Received a phone call with offer the next morning.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Roorkee (India)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was a chill interview. They asked general questions related to my personality, based on my resume. Since, they did not have much time so it was a quick interview. Initial shortlisting was based on resume but it was more random. They pay much attention to your personality, your positions of responsibility. Interview went on smoothly. The students who were finally selected were asked some of the basic technical questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Oklahoma City, OK) in May 2011.

    Interview

    1st was a phone interview asking simple background questions and then an in-person, group interview was conducted in Oklahoma City. The in-person interview included group activities, team building exercises and 1-1 interviews. The in-person interview lasted 2 days. The first day didn't start until late in the afternoon and didn't finish until around midnight. The second day started at about 6:00 AM so it was apparent they were testing the candidates ability to function well when fatigued.
