    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was E mailed a PDF package that i needed to fill out which included the standard legal questions about right to work in certain locations. Once i filled this out I sent it back to the HR person along with what time i would like to come in for an interview (she game me a range over two days). I went to the office downtown and was given a pretty standard one on one interview with normal behavioural questions then i was asked one critical thinking question. One thing to remember is that they are looking for your thought process not the answer so don't just sit there and brood, actually talk about what you are thinking. after this they explained the job and really tried to stress the physical part of thus job and how nasty it would be in the field in terms of conditions and hours.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schlumberger in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Apply at career fair
    - Tell them you are interested in working as a field engineer
    - They ask are you eligible to work in xx country
    - Your availability
    - Your GPA
    - Tell them something about enjoying working outdoors/long hours/all nighters/ etc...

    Phone call for interview
    - Asked to attend info session prior to interview

    Interview
    - Asked what you know about the company
    - Why you want to work as a field engineer and why Schlumberger
    - Are you willing to relocate
    - Your 5 year career path
    - How you handle stress
    - Mechanical problem
    - The interviewer had no ability to show emotion or empathy, very unfriendly. (must be frustrating picking from overqualified candidates for a long hours, back breaking high paying job)
    - Asked about type of drivers license and driving experience.
    - Asked about ability to work in the USA

    - They want to make sure they are not wasting time spending 3 months training someone who will not stay with the company for 2-5 years.
    - Current opportunities are in Alberta only (Canada, 2013-2014) , no international opportunities.
    - The head HR person was herself a field engineer, she lasted 1 year. the avg is 15-16 months.. as seen from other reviews. The other interviewer was a design engineer and had no experience as a field engineer... They interviewers did not seem happy with their job.
    - Job seems very hands on and laborious and monotonous. Work here for $ and new grad experience.
    - Tell them you enjoy being in the middle of nowhere, camping etc..
    - Show passion and love for everything related to OIL and OIL servicing.

    Brain teaser:
    - How many degrees between the hour hand and the minute hand at 3:15. 7.5 degrees.

    Field Engineering is not for everyone !
    Do your research, attend the info session. Kindly decline the interview if you do no think it is the job for you, do not waste your time and their time with an interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    First round interview, was contacted after submitting my resume to a recruiter during a university career fair. Interview lasted 30 minutes with the same recruiter from the fair. Interviewer was friendly, interested in personal details, very honest about the demands of the job. Made a big point of explaining how Schlumberger supports its employees with training, etc.

    Received an invitation to a second round interview 2.5 weeks later and was given 3 days to respond. Second round interview takes place about a month after the first round interview, but I had to reschedule due to a conflict so mine will be a little later than that.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions, but you are expected to show personality e.g. 'tell me about yourself'   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Schlumberger in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted for a first interview after submitting a resume to the university database. Had a briefing session with interested students and other candidates before the interview to learn more about the company.
    Interview was not conducted by who they said it would be conducted by and was not much of an interview at all. Wasn't asked anything about myself or any typical interview questions, the interview just explained more about the company and how awesome it was to work for them but that it would be very difficult to get the position due to the high number of qualified applicants. Was quite surprised when invited back for a second interview.
