Field Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

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.

    Interview Details

    Online application, then an invite to assessment centre.

    Assessment centre quite laid-back, they seem to observe your personality and whether you would suit the role. Then a one-on-one interview is given to round off the day. Make sure you are well adept with competency questions and have lots of examples where you demonstrate it.

    A major con: No feedback is offered at any stage of the recruitment, even after interview.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Schlumberger in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to the assessment centre in Aberdeen where a full day event was conducted.
    The day started with 3 psychometric tests, these were unlike others I have seen in the industry where the first was a logic sequence, however in a 3x3 grid with 1 square missing, the 2nd was a circuit like problem where different components altered the shape going through it in terms of size, colour and shape type this was fairly easy, the last test was also component based and fairly logical.
    After a break we worked in a group to make a structure out of paper we could all stand under. We had lunch and then there were pre prepared presentations from all candidates and individual interviews.
    The staff were fairly friendly, however a more holistic approach would have been better rather than telling people to leave after not scoring well in the tests which is quite intimidating.

    Interview Details

    Relatively tame assessment day, only 7 candidates.

    Morning had some logic and reasoning tests followed by a group exercise.

    Afternoon had a presentation on yourself and a brief one on one interview; nothing too challenging asked but they seemed keen to know if you have practical experience. Followed by a 5 minute technical task assembling a simple a valve.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Schlumberger in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Online CV drop followed by Assessment Centre.
    Assessment centre consisted of 5 min personal presentation followed by questions, team task, maths/physics test and logic test, practical test and interview.

    Personal presentation topics are prescribed. I haven't had the inevitable rejection yet but from candidate to candidate, don't bore everyone with wordy powerpoints. They will bring up your weakness, lets hope there's an upside to it.
    Team task is achieving certain physical objectives using office materials & stationery. Time is short, come up with a plan and stick to it. They are probably judging teamwork, communication and common sense.
    Practical test was hard, involves assembling a component - look at any diagrams very carefully.
    In my interview it felt they were trying to figure out which division I might fit into. Read up on the three divisions, I was caught off guard when they started describing a job different to the one I had researched.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Schlumberger.

    Interview Details

    Simply sent in my CV. Then called to an assessment day where you are required to do a presentation, maths and lateral thinking test, group test and personal interview with a practical test. There is also a presentation of the company and the position.

    Nothing abnormal in the interview, standard questions. Why do you want the job? What can you give to it? How do you think you will cope being away from civilization for prolong periods?
