Avoir beaucoup de responsabilités implique beaucoup de pression et de stresse. seulement la culture de l'entreprise permettait de développer les connaissances et les habités et surtout l'experience dans le gestion.
Directional Driller Supervisor (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 13, 2017
They hire so many contractors, but there is not job available for them. Contractors get paid daily with no other benefits and no schedule. Sometimes for more than 2 month there is not even a single day on the job.
Lead Electronics Technician (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – October 12, 2017
All i can say is that if you don't have a life anyway, you might as well get paid to not have one. The pay is great and the local discounts are nice. I see my family maybe 7 days a month and even then it's usually spent sleeping. but the bills are paid and i cant complain. you know exactly what you're signing up for. They're extremely transparent on my work level, until the rumors about lay offs start flying.
I worked offshore for Schlumberger for 9 years, doing gas and oil seismic exploration. A typical tour was 5 weeks offshore / 5 weeks home. I worked all over the world, traveled to 32 different countries.
Completions Tool Operator II (Current Employee) – Texas – October 11, 2017
good training program. spend an extended time away from family. hated the schedule they had, worked 24/7 on call all the time. some months are slow and spent majority of the slow months sitting at home. management was good. when you are working you can make some good money with overtime, but on the slow months you make less than someone will at McDonalds.
Checking order and emails. preparing shipments and checking inventory (typical work day) Learned a lot computer programs (learned) Was great (management)\ Everyone was great to work with (work culture) leaving the company (hardest part) Working there (enjoyable part)

Schlumberger is a fair company with great benefits and interesting work. It is easy to learn a lot in this company. The downsides are immobility (partially because of the downturn) and the lack of upward mobility. Once in a segment, it can be very difficult to switch segments. Additionally, the training program is very long (3 years usually) and you are not allowed to change positions in this time
Loved working there but was laid off, My team lead was very knowledgeable tool room had everything everybody in my chain of command was awesome. I enjoyed the brake room even had a pool table and computers for access to you pay.

Coil Tubing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Prudhoe Bay, AK – October 5, 2017
Good place to get trained, but best to move on once you have the skills to. Management lies a lot and tries to hide every little change that will negatively affect the revenue making employees. They also take zero responsibility for anything that may affect their yearly bonus. However, I met a lot of great people working with SLB, just wish they treated their employees better.
