Predictive Modeler Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at D&B.
Interview Details – There was a brief phone interview that lasted about half an hour which was followed by an onsite interview with a few members of their team and then a one hour presentation.
Interview Question – Was asked more business-related questions than I was expecting when applying for a statistics job. Answer Question
Corporate Communications Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at D&B in July 2012.
Interview Details – Horrible recruiting process. Very little personal connection and the video interview was ridiculous. Pro forma, canned questions that did not allow for any variance from the script. HR rep was borderline rude.
Interview Question – None of the canned questions was difficult to answer, but the video interview was ludicrous. It did not allow for any interaction, which is crazy when it was for a Communications position. Answer Question
Relationship Manager National Accounts Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at D&B
Interview Details – Overly involved process with 5 separate interviews. Included a presentation to a group of which only 2 of 5 scheduled attended. Weeks passed and I was advised waiting on final offer to be made. Long story short, instead of offer was advised that a direct contact of a senior manager was chosen at their insistence.
Interview Question – Going through numerous interviews with essentially the same individual. Answer Question
Financial Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)

Interview Question – How much disk space required to install VS 2010 Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Project Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at D&B in June 2013.
Interview Details – Had an initial phone screen and was moved along in the process based on my background. Scheduled an in person interview with three senior managers in Short Hills, NJ.
The entire in person interview process was laborious and interviewers seemed totally indifferent and uninterested - almost as if they had already hired another individual and were just going through the motions. It was by far the worst interviewing experience of my career. I even probed the usual questions: what would be your best candidate, what personality types fit in, how do you know you've hired the right person, etc. Nothing - monotoned interviewers. I left knowing that I didn't get the position and was utterly relieved when I got the rejection notice the next day. C'mon team: let's be professional;
Interview Question – None were difficult - interviewers were clueless. Answer Question
Sales (Austin, Texas) Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at D&B in April 2013.
Interview Details – Hiring process intro: Phone Screening to come in
On-site Interview: Waiting room wait of 10 mins then two person interview at same time.
Companies really don't realize that having really unprofessional people interview really makes you have negative connotations about that company for a long time.
The woman who interviewed me made it clear within me interviewing for 2 minutes that my resume had "red flags" haha I graduated in 2009 when the recession hit and I have a BBA in Marketing .. . I assumed she had no idea what a recession is. I've had 100/dial phone jobs with great closing ability and I've set up appointments with some of the biggest companies in the world (none of which was ever brought up ie wells fargo,apple,harley davison,bank of the west,best buy C-Level executives etc etc). I ran through my resume continuing to prove to her every role and responsibility I had with respect to output and good effort. They made me do a phone interview in which I knew I did well but from the start of this woman's attitude I no longer felt good vibes. Finishing the interview only made me laugh more because it showed how unprofessional and completely judgmental they were without understanding the concept of recessions/newly grads/training/and over-all business in general... . the woman who scowled at my BBA degree in Business Marketing from a credited top-tier Business School had worn socks the whole time she was walking around the company floor. Goes to show how unprofessional D&B Austin,Texas office is. The woman told me I would hear back from someone and I never did in which I am so glad I never let any of those robots phase me (please apply if you are ok with that). Completely a waste of time & not to mention the low pay with respect to the Austin,Texas popular housing bubble would leave most with $300 'Discretionary Income'. It's obvious when companies get so big they can free-up hiring on people interviewing you in socks who probably have a general studies degree who frown on people with Business Degrees who actually study Business/Trends. Don't interview if you are a serious business professional who plans to do something great with your BBA Degree. Proceed with caution and never let people like that disrespect you regarding something you know you can do.
Summer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university - interviewed at D&B in March 2013.
Interview Details – I sent my resume and heard back for a phone interview. Next would be onsite interviews. The recruiter was really friendly but she didn't ask any questions it was just me talking about myself and filling time since she was vague about what she asked and then filled me in on the position details.
Interview Question – It was all behavioral basically just tell me about youself Answer Question
Manager, Learning and Development Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at D&B in February 2013.
Interview Details – The Recruiter (Adecco) reached out to me via email. We had a brief phone conversation which lasted about 15 minutes. It was by far the shortest phone screen I've had, and the strangest. The Recruiter was very monotone and had no enthusiasm in her tone. She asked me one question "tell me about your work history"... and as I spoke, I did not hear a single peep from her. She did not ask any followup questions or show any auditory signs that she was even listening. I did stop to ask her if she had any questions and she would just say 'no.' I continued to speak until I had covered my entire resume. At that time, she abruptly ended the call and said she would be in touch next week. As a representative of D&B, I expected her to be much more upbeat, interesting and interested. I hung up the phone and felt I did NOT want to work there. She clearly was an unhappy and unmotivated person - regardless if she works for Adecco or D&B.
Two weeks later I received a canned email that they were pursuing candidates with more specific qualifications. That was fine by me!
Interview Question – She only asked 1 question, "tell me about your work history"... Answer Question
