Oklahoma City. Expect the unexpected. There are more than a few reasons to move to OKC, but don't take our word for it. Forbes, The Atlantic, Business Daily News, Outside Magazine and many others point to our city as one of the most attractive places in the nation to live, work and play. So don't wait. Oklahoma City beckons.
With a diverse terrain from the panhandle to Green Country and back again, our state is a favorite destination for hikers, ATV enthusiasts, water skiers, canoers, kayakers and fishermen. Not to mention the surrounding countryside is dotted with parks and lakes — so many in fact that Oklahoma boasts more shoreline than the Atlantic Coast.
Not to mention Oklahoma City alone boasts more than 50 golf courses. With so many options everyone from beginners to seasoned professionals can find a course they love.
Our home team, the OKC Thunder, is the first NBA team to make the playoffs in their opening season and have been rated the #1 sports franchise. We’re home to the training ground for the U.S. Olympic rowing team, as well as the Oklahoma City Redhawks, Barons and newly founded Energy. And we also boast two of the nation’s top college football programs at OU and OSU, and are consistently rated among the best markets for watching college football. Plus, we’re home to the Women’s College World Series each May and are often selected to host PGA events and Big XII and NCAA tournaments for almost every sport.
You’ll find a diversity of top-rated cuisine in OKC, from our trademark barbeque joints to Latin American, Italian, authentic Vietnamese and much more. And if retail therapy is a favored pastime, we have you covered with our three metro-area malls and high-end boutiques at Classen Curve and The Plaza in Nicholas Hills. The Outlet Shoppes also offer a wide variety of shopping experiences from top-tier name brands, while still providing top-notch bang for your buck. All in all, there’s a lot to take in here in OKC. So take a load off in one of our four-star hotels or kick back and relax at one of our many luxurious salons and day spas.
With a wide variety of districts, Oklahoma City offers a remarkably unique culture and appeal. Visit our bustling Bricktown Entertainment District’s bar and lounge scene to check out the nightlife or the Deep Deuce District’s jazz and rock clubs to hear your favorite local and not-so-local bands. The Paseo Art District, flush with trendy galleries and shops, is a must-see for those with an artistic flair.
Our family friendly Adventure District boasts the popular OKC Zoo, Oklahoma Science Museum, National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, National Softball Hall of Fame, Frontier City and countless parks and gardens — in short, outings the whole family will enjoy.
That’s why we foster your growth at work and support your efforts at home and in your community. So when we noticed a lot of our employees volunteering to build houses for the homeless, we started offering paid time off for their efforts and funded the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.
Filled with a can-do attitude, our employees are always quick to respond and lend a hand when they see a need. Whether it’s leaping into action to respond to disaster relief or providing long-term support such as coaching a youth sports team, funding a local charter school for at-risk kids or sitting on the board of a local charity, we encourage and support our employees’ passion for creating a better place to call home.
We pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive and compelling internship program. Our interns work with real data from real sites and develop a working knowledge of our business as they enjoy hands-on training from multiple angles. In fact, our program culminates with each group of interns presenting the results of their project to our most senior leaders and receiving direct feedback.
Much more than a two-month job, our internship gives you an opportunity to get a firsthand look at Chaparral and for us to see all you have to offer. To give you a sense of just how committed we are to this program, 85 percent of last year’s interns are now full-time employees. Interested in an Internship? Contact us.
