Geologist Interview

Geologist
Oklahoma City, OK

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Chesapeake Energy in April 2014.

Interview Details – 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 Question – What are some of CHK's shale plays?   View Answer

Engineering Tech Interview

Engineering Tech

Interviewed at Chesapeake Energy

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Chesapeake Energy in September 2013.

Interview Details – 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.

Geologist Interview

Geologist

I applied through other source and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Chesapeake Energy in February 2012.

Interview Details – I posted my resume on careerbuilder and created a profile on linked-in. Shortly after I was contacted by Chesapeake regarding a Geologist job working on the oil/gas land rigs. The interview process was very easy, they asked my cliche interview questions and did not drill me about my experience (bc they required none). However, after I accepted their offer, they strung ma along for almost 4 months. I ended up finding another job, started at that job and then finally received my call to work and start training.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, just the standard cliche questions you normally expect. Strengths/Weaknesses etc.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I found a job closer to home. They offered great pay. However, downside was that you worked crazy hours, could be sent anywhere in the country and did not know where you would be going until after 2 weeks of training. This may be great for some, just not for me.
