Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 7 weeks – interviewed 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.Interview Questions
