    Supply Chain Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Chesapeake Energy (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was by phone and it was so difficult to hear the questions due to the persons office being on a busy street , which they acknowledged. Why if they knew people could not hear them would they put you through asking to repeat the questions and answers (both ways) Then they sat and just talked to each other just friendly conversation and then would apologize. It was a huge waste of 20 min of my life and the time I mentally prepared for it. I never heard from them.

    Geologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy in February 2012.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Reasons 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.
