I don't work for Schlumberger but I interviewed with Schlumberger at their New Jersey location back in September 2011. I like the feel and vibe the place was giving, everyone seemed nice and seemed to like working with each other, dress code was a mixture of everything, you had people in jeans to people in 3-piece suits.
From what I see and hear all positions seem to start off at a nice salary, I was applying for a Material Distributor position and Schlumberger was gonna start me off if I was selected at $23.00 an hour and a possiable raise to $25.00 once I went fulltime and benefits started, I was told benefits start after 6 months as your first 6 months is a probationary period and they review your status and then they offer you a position you can then get benefits. I don't know if this is like it throughout the company worldwide but I'm told that's how they do it in New Jersey, U.S.A. I have seen positions listed for clerical positins and said starting pay was $17.00 an hour which that is great pay for a clerical position. I was told they only work Mon-Fri, some overtime occasionally, 8:30am-4:30pm which this was in New Jersey, this location is not a drilling or manufacturing location, this is just offices and light shipping.
I didn't get the job I think due to me being somewhat nervous as it was my first interview in over ten years, alot has changed in those ten years and I think I may have been edged out for the position because I don't have computerized inventory experience. The main hiring person said he feels I would be a good addition to the Schlumberger Team, I hope he was being truthfull and not just saying that, I was there for almost 3 hours interviewing with 3 different people.
All I know is I want to work for Schlumberger and would be willing to relocate almost anywhere throughout the U.S.A at my expense to work for them!
