I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (More than a year)
Lots of overtime, very well equipped shop, great teamwork
Constantly changing shifts, not focused on employee retention, constant layoffs
Advice to Management
Forecast state of industry before hiring and firing employees constantly
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Schlumberger (Denver, CO).
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.
