    Employee Relations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Oklahoma City, OK
    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

They said I should hear back in the next two weeks, never heard anything.

    Production Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Oklahoma City, OK
    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed 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.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Oklahoma City, OK
    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Chesapeake Energy in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the company's career webpage. I submitted my resume and application and received a confirmation email within one hour. I was then contacted by phone with two days to set up an interview time. The phone interview consisted of 10 purely behavioral questions: what are your strengths/weaknesses, etc. I was underqualified for the position, and was not offered. I was somewhat curious to know why the HR representative hadn't reviewed my resume to check that I met the qualifications, but couldn't get a straight answer. Overall, the experience was a good one, though I did not get the job.
