    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The University Relations department called me a week after my initial application to schedule an interview for the end of the week. I had about two days of notice for the interview, so be prepared to research the company. They asked questions related to my resume but focused mainly on behavioral questions. The interview was via webcam and only last 20 minutes. Three people from the accounting department asked the various questions. All were encouraging through the interview. Have questions prepared for them as well, so they know you are seriously interested in the internship. I only had one interview before accepting their offer.

    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.

    No technical questions were asked. My resume demonstrated I had all the requisite technical knowledge and experience the position required.
