    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chesapeake Energy (Pearsall, TX) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Very brief, they almost immediately gave me the position. I interviewed with the Area manager, he walked me over to the dispatch office and showed me what they do on a daily basis. We went over the compensation package and was briefed on shift times and work load expectations. I sat with the dispatcher on shift and shadowed for 30 minutes or so. They said they would be in touch. I received a call the next day to start work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Chesapeake Energy (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    In the fall of 2013, I was scheduled for a first phone interview with a recruiter from the HR department. It didn't happen. I received a second phone call from another recruiter to reschedule a phone interview. I waited the week after, nothing happened. Finally, after a week, I received another phone call to reschedule the interview that I was suppose to have initially. The person who interviewed me hinted that the first two recruiters "left" their company. The truth is that these two recruiters got laid off. This tells me a lot about the company. Afterwards, I was able to land an onsite interview. The interview was pretty easy.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to explain my projects on my resume, how much I can bench press, and how do I learn something quickly.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Stability is an issue for me. I am not optimistic about Chesapeake Energy after doing further research.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Interview

    Communication was terrible. Took over 6 months to get back to me after the interview. Needless to say I had already accepted a job with a different company. Did the same thing with a few other people I know as well.
