Retiring to me is not the best thing to get at this age; my age because it will leave me isolated and deprived from activities and people I used to interact with and contribute to their well- being. Retiring will also deprive me from seeing other parts if the world and enjoying time exploring and understanding the world around me. Less

Hello guy, I don't know you but if you think this was a rude interview then you didn't do your homework brfore going to the interview. The point of interviews at Schlumberger is mainly to test your personality. Not your accademic or professional records. They already know that you have the accademic background. That's why you got invited to the interview. And i think your experience was the perfect set up to see how you react under pressure. To see if you "feel confortable being unconfortable." LOL. I interview at SLB Bucharest in Feb 2013, and my interviewer was chating on his PC while discousrsing simultanously with his colleague. He also used the words A**hole and B*tch a couple of times. This is to test your personality. And when the ask you a question say you have two options of answers, there is actually no right. they are trying to conner you and see how you react under pressure. Again as i said test of personality. And when they do all the other stuufs while you talking about yourself ( as if they don't care), it is actually to see how focus you remain when distracted. Sorry it was a bad experience for you. I found it exciting and i really respect your recruiting technique. Sniky but effective. ANNNNNDD, don't leave the one-on-one interview without asking questions of yours. And this directly to the interviewer. Try getting back at him (NOT fight him). Questions like, what was your worse experience so far as and engineer for SLB (i asked that). And if he says why ( which he said in my case), I replied ""Cuz i know even dream jobs have their ups and downs. I love slb and am excited about it, so i want to sneak pic in the live of an slb engineer and you are here so? Well, he didn't answer, but he liked it. Hope my comments help. Less
