    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went through first round of interviews on campus. That was narrowed down to a select few to interview at headquarters. Interviews at headquarters took all day. I had to interview with each accounting department’s intern mentor. This was done to see what would be the best fit for me. We received a campus tour, lunch with other applicants and mentors.

    Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Chesapeake Energy in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    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 Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed 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 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was a screening. I was asked basic personal questions about my skills strengths and weeknesses. The first question that was asked was what did I know about Chesapeake. I was asked what is the most difficult part of my job. I was asked what are two strengths and one weekness. I was asked why do I want towork for Chesapeake. The interviewer was nice and typed everything I said. There will be another phone interview today and possibly a face to face interview if this goes well. Sometimes interviewing with Chesapeake is a multistep process and sometimes it's a one time interview and then a decision, depending on the departmental needs.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Chesapeake Energy in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer gave me a behavioral review. I was asked questions on ethics, future goals, past experiences (and what I learned from them), and job preferences. It was pretty simple and straight forward. The interviewer also gave me ample time to ask him questions about their company, his work experience, and his company's culture. Actually what frustrated me is that I received a review from my interview performance, and scored mostly 'excellent" but didn't receive a second interview.
