    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chesapeake Utilities (Columbus, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral questions with some personal questions mixed in. The interviewer did not seem like he had much experience with screening potential employees. Very nice people at this company but their interview process could be improved.
