    Senior Credit Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I have applied for no less than 9 positions for which I would be qualified. Was finally contacted by HR for a pre-screen conversation. Afterwards I was contacted for a phone interview with the HM of the position, the Credit Manager. Overall the phone interview went horrible. The HM could barely speak English and it was very clear English was a second language to Spanish. When I stated I had 20 years experience in commercial credit, his response was "Oh". Ding Ding Ding, old guy (in my 40's and he had viewed my Linkedin.com profile prior to the call). Having researched the hiring manager he is clearly in his very early 30's and was new in the role. Needless to say, the next day I received the generic decline letter. Overall, a very sad experience. Phone interviews are the laziest way a company can interview people. I have since decided not to do phone interviews for in town companies. I give my full attention while on a phone interview, and I can't compete with the hiring manager checking email, facebook and etc while doing a phone screening. HR companies; put the "human" back in interviews. You're missing quality talent by phone screening.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy in November 2014.

    Interview

    Process is taking quite a while. I had a pre-screening phone interview, and then called in for an actual interview. It only lasted 30 min. Haven't received an email saying i didn't get the position, also haven't received a call saying I did. Going on about a month after hearing anything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy (Oklahoma City, OK) in September 2014.

    Interview

    No technical questions were asked. My resume demonstrated I had all the requisite technical knowledge and experience the position required. The interview was by two line managers who asked a lot of details about my previous experience. The interview ultimately clearly focused on determining whether or not I would fit in with their group.

    Engineering Tech Interview

    No Offer

    Interview

    Before the face to face interview there was an over the phone interview that focused on your resume and qualifications. Next came the actual interview which I feel was a pretty typical interview. This interview was a get to know you type of interview. During the interview I met with a few different people. I met with one that was in charge of the hiring, a current engineering tech, and then an HR person to talk benefits and such. I was also given a tour of the campus.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing to difficult. The one that got me, because I hadn't really thought of it before, was simply what are my weaknesses? You have them, so be honest and open about them.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy (Oklahoma City, OK) in April 2014.

    Interview

    First interviewed with CHK at career fair in spring 2014. First interview was brief and very pleasant with not difficult questions, mostly asked about research/work experience and how my skills would contribute to the company. I was contacted the following Monday to arrange an on-site interview. On-site interview consisted of two interviews with two managers in each. These were more formal but still casual and they mostly asked how my thesis research could relate to industry. The campus is amazing and unfortunately I was notified two days later that I was not receiving an offer.

    Interview

    I received this interview after applying through my Universities carer center and talking to them at the Job Fair. It was a very pleasant interview. The man I spoke with was young and obviously loved his job and Chesapeake. The interview was very straightforward and consisted of simply discussing my resume and past experiences. The man loved breaking up the questions with small talk.
