While Continental has created hundreds of jobs over the past two years, it has turned away many more applicants.
“We're getting thousands of applicants all the time,” Henry said.
Continental moved into the tower Devon Energy Corp. vacated when it built the Devon Energy Center two blocks away.
Henry said the building has room to accommodate several years of growth, but that something will have to happen if the pace of growth continues.
“It's not full, but we can see that coming down the road,” he said. “We've got to start thinking about other alternatives.”
Specifically what that means is still unclear.
Devon occupied parts of five downtown Oklahoma City buildings before it consolidated into its new tower.
“Obviously we want to keep our people as close as we can near downtown if they're going to be based in Oklahoma City,” Henry said. “We're going to have to think about alternatives.
“Our culture is such that if we start running out of room, we'll squeeze people in and make it work.”
