Skill Tips
Criteria for getting shortlisted No CG cutoff I think. PORs might have mattered.It is very weird the shortlist and the GD and interview, but you just have to confident and clear headed throughout.
General Tips
This was the first company for me.I actually was not serious about placements and hadn’t prepared.Yes preparing early always helps.Third years must make sure they make best use of their interns.Most of my friends spent a lot of their interview times speaking about their interns so if your intern is good it would be better.Second year just mug and put PORs insti team fight and all that.

Group Activity HR Interview
Round 1

Group Activity

Interview Experience
The group activity of Schlums was again easy and I got selected for the next round.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
Since my btp is funded by Schlumberger it wasn't tough for me to convince them. My interview was mostly based on my btp work and a few questions testing my basics in manufacturing processes. The general HR questions were like: why Schlumberger, any failures in life, how I tackled them and so on. The interview didn't last too long. I couldn't attend the informal session as I had Transocean interview at that time.
General Tips
The first 2 months I was busy preparing for GRE and hence didn't have much time to prepare foR placements. But I kept on attending all the PPTs to find about the kind of work done, the kind of people who work there and the subsequent growth opportunities. That also helped me in identifying the companies that I need to target. Next was the resume making. It involved talking to few of the seniors and then tailoring my resume according to the company’s requirements. Another issue was that looking at my resume the companies shouldn't feel that I intend to app too and hence I had to very carefully choose the stuff that I wanted to mention in my resume, even if that meant concealing some of the achievements because they gave the impression that I would eventually go for higher studies. Also it’s important to be completely honest in the resume or else one can falter in the interview process.

Group Discussion HR Interview
Round 1

Group Discussion

Interview Experience
The GD was a standard one. A list of objects was provided which were to be ranked according to their necessity on a mission to moon. The group was to discuss and the individuals were to mark it later.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Why Schlumberger ?
  • Question 2: Your career aspirations ?
  • Question 3: Your homework on Schlumberger.
Interview Experience
PI was mostly HR related questions. During the interview I had realized the stark difference between the company work profile and my expectations and had apprised them of the same.
General Tips
Most of the times, things go on as they are supposed to, we do what we are assigned, meet deadlines and get it over with. Knowing what to do after four or five years of study at IIT is one of those deciding phases where we have to do something out of routine, think about what we actually want, what we can get from where we are. Here is an account of how I went about making my decisions and preparing for it. In one of those routine placement

talks, a speaker remarked, ‘there are two ways you can choose a career- by extrapolation from what you have right now and by interpolation from your long term goal’. This helps one realize the importance of identification of long term goal. In my opinion, once a person is convinced about that, it is easy to pull off an interview; more importantly, it is easy to identify which options to prepare for.

Skill Tips
"I think one just need to know about the company and show interest in the company during the interview.The most apt thing to do would be to say what exactly the interviewer wants, because most of the time theinterviewer searches his views and similarities in the candidate. Show your efforts you have made in youlife, your education etc. Preparation could be just in terms of being a little aware of the current topics."
General Tips
Overall the process was excellent and enjoyable. Although it went on from 6pm to 4am every part ofenjoyable, thrilling. Its easy if you can just live that time leaving all your worries for the next placement day apart even if you have a next process just after 2-3 hrs.

Resume Shortlist HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
I had a standard resume for this company as per our institute placement cell norms. I usually changed my “Areas of Interest” as per the company profile. For Schlumberger I laid emphasis on extracurricular activities and especially on any achievements related to sports.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
The final round was the interview round and almost all the questions were HR questions. I was asked questions like ‘We’ll be posting you across some of the harshest terrains across the globe, would you be able to survive under such rigorous conditions?’ From my resume they upheld a notion that I was a “mama’s boy” and surviving under such distressing conditions won’t be possible for me. I tried to convince them about my vigour of surviving in difficult conditions but to no avail. I wasn’t selected for a job by the company.
Motivation for applying
Most of the information regarding the company was obtained by attending the Pre Placement Talk. It was really informative as it told what the company actually does as well as the working conditions.
