Schlumberger Pune Interview Experience – Internship
Schlumberger is an oil-field service company and was in our college campus for hiring the interns for software section in Pune.
Round 1: Aptitude Test
It consisted of 2 coding problems and 6 MCQs on Data Structures and Coding.
Problems for coding were simple, required the mathematical formulation of the given problem and putting it into the code.
MCQs were of average difficulty.
It was conducted in the company. First-round was technical, CV oriented. The interviewer asked the basic questions on Data Structures and Algorithms (sorting, trees) and other common coding problems. Questions related to the project and skills mentioned in the resume were asked. Some questions from Operating System were also asked.
It was non-technical round, was exploring my imagination capacity and understanding about today’s trending technologies. The interviewer asked me to tell any ‘new’ problem that I would like to solve using AI. This round was different from the typical HR Interview.
It was again technical round. This time interviewer tested my basic concepts and asked me to write very basic codes (finding substrings) and asked to explain it and optimize. Basic queries of SQL were also asked.
This was an HR round. The interviewer asked me typical questions like ‘tell me about yourself’, ‘why this company’, ‘tell me your strengths’ and ‘any example in your life that showcases these strengths’ etc. The interviewer also asked me to briefly tell about my co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Results were conveyed 5-6 days later, and I was selected !!
But, later, as the company experienced difficulties due to crashing of oil prices in COVID-19, the company cancelled its whole internship program.
