    I have been working at Chesapeake Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - tremendous benefits
    - relaxed atmosphere
    - upward mobility
    - amenities (offices, restaurants, fitness center, etc.)

    Cons

    - immature business practices (but improving)
    - history of HR siding with management rather than employees

    Advice to Management

    1) Don't just put the culture on a poster, live it out
    2) Find ways to keep VPs, Directors, and Managers accountable
    3) Make transparency a priority

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Chesapeake Energy (Norman, OK) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very behaviorally based. They asked a lot of questions involving "tell me a time when." I was unprepared for a lot of the questions but none of them were unreasonable. I was interviewed by three engineers after a campus recruiting event.
