They really made their pasture look "greener" in the beginning.
Pipeline Technician (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJune 3, 2016
Chesapeake was in the midst of some sort of "growing pains".
It would have been better if not for the shenanigans of it's late Founder and CEO I believe. As a company it was floundering.
Pros
They supplied a truck and gas and a continuously ringing phone.
Cons
none

maintenance (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKMay 17, 2016
A great company to work for. Always busy. A great work environment. How to work with a variety of different types of people in a different type of environment. The management was good.
The co-workers were great to work with. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with all the lay-offs. The best part of the job was the interactions with other employees of the company itself.
Pros
Friendly environment of the whole company
Cons
The many lay offs

Fun Work Enviroment

Ok place to work.
Senior Lease Operator (Former Employee) –  Cotulla, TXMarch 27, 2016
Daily routine got boring. Did learn more about pumping jacks and heater treaters. Too many Chiefs not enough Indians. Plant operator was great ,my relief operators were not knowledgeable enough. Hardest part would be keeping repairs( all units decided to fail). And you had problem free days.
Pros
good relationship with vendors and Upper management
Cons
long days.

Challenging
Health and Safety Manager (Current Employee) –  OklahomaMarch 7, 2016
Everything about CHK is challenging, it always has been. But if you are up for the rat race in an O&G Operation. The excellent excel and the poor performers perish.

If you want it they will let you go get it. Be prepared to sink/swim. expectations are high and your workgroup will let you know what is expected of you.

The new CEO and Executive Team are Quality people but the prices of CHK commodities drive the bus, Not the Board or CEO.
Pros
Great 401K and Bonuses
Cons
Some middle managers are way too young and cluless.

Fun place to work outdoors. Worked alone most of the time unless a fellow co-worker needed help or myself needed help with a task. Company provided everything except meals during the day.

The day to day business of this company is basically the same. You have the areas assigned to you and cover them all monthly.
Well tender (Current Employee) –  Clendenin, WVMarch 2, 2016
Basically I feel it's time for a career change and new challenge. After 35 yrs in this industry, you will continue to learn and gain experience in situations that you may encounter This in turn prepares you to handle any problems which may arise.
Pros
Working outdoors, co-workers and vacation.
Cons
Weather conditions sometimes. Even though we use computers, there is still too much paperwork.
