    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    The 1st interview at my university's career fair was standard and did not get very technical. The 2nd interview, however, was designed to make new hires realize that the working hours will be difficult and that if you like being in touch with your family, this isn't the job for you. There are lots of hands-on team building exercises and minimal sleep over the 2.5 days.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    The process started with talking to recruiters at my university career fair, and I was invited to an on-campus interview one week after. The on-campus interview consisted of pretty standard behavioral questions. After passing the 1:1 interview, I was invited to an on-site, three-day interview that consisted of a group presentation, team problem solving challenges, facility and site tours, and a 1:1 exit interview. They try to see how well you respond to unfamiliar situations and challenges, as well as to see if you can function on as little sleep as possible.

    Interview Details

    Started with an on-campus interview where most questions were basic character questions you'd encounter at any interview. They did through one problem solving question out at me though. This is for the field so make sure you seem eager about getting your hands dirty and that you recognize that working for this company is a completely different lifestyle.

    The second interview is where they fly you out with a group of other field engineer prospects. They give you a ton of information about the different segments in the company. You give a group presentation over one of them. You get to go out to a rig and see the equipment. The exit interview at the end is only 10/15 min and they basically just want to know which segment you want to work for and why.

    Went to my school career fair and talked to Schlumberger. After that, they scheduled me an on campus interview. The interview was short and did not consist of any behavioral questions like I expected. They just went over my resume and asked me if I had any questions.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    Sent off CV and got a response within a week; invited to Assessment Centre.

    The assessment day was quite typical; presentation, logic tests (do revision on different types of psychometric logic tests) group exercise and one-on-one interview.
    Nothing extremely difficult..

    However, quite a bad HR department. Some people from the interview didn't hear back about negative results until they personally called the department after almost 2 months. It seems most of the positions were already filled while we interviewed the assessment centre.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    First was the CV shortlisting; 50 selected out of 350. Next was the group discussion round. Topics ranged from Right vs Left to the mathematical symbol pie. Your 'out-of-box' thinking was checked. Half of the people got selected for the group case-study round, which was very simple. Just co-ordinate properly in the group and don't be dominating. They check for team-work skills. And then finally 10 got selected for the final interview. Interview lasted for an average of 20 minutes. They had asked all the final interview selected candidates to prepare an SOP . Be prepared for the projects mentioned in your CV. Technical projects have an added advantage but make sure you are well prepared. They can ask you in-depth questions on it.

    The hiring process assessed your group dynamics and leadership skills. Technical knowledge does not carry any significance. Three rounds before interview:

    1. Resume Shortlisting
