    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Summit, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Summit, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at D&B in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview first with HR. Typical interview questions. Next I had to take a full day off to spend at D&B for 4 face to face interviews. Everyone was very nice and friendly. All were very knowledgeable about the position. It was a good experience. the job itself sounded amazing....but the hours were more than I was willing to work. (Weekends and nights...in addition to regular business hours) Salary was lower than I was making as well.

    Business Reengineering, Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Short Hills, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Short Hills, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at D&B in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was an utter nightmare. I initially applied for a role that was listed on an alumni site. I got a call back and was told that role was not availble, but there was another role that fit my background. This call call came from an outside recruiting firm which represented itself as being a part of D&B. The person submitted my resume for the position and I then received a call. I had one interview on the phone. That went well and I was asked to travel to Short Hills, NJ (at my costs). There were no directions offered on how to get to this surban location from NYC. I went in for the interview and truly enjoyed all the people I met. After that I got another call to come back to NJ for another set of interviews (you would think they had the sense to realize their location is not convient and to get all interviews done at once). In that interview several people gave me the impression that I would get the role. After that interiview I received a call requesting I do a phone interview with someone. Who when we spoke seemed confused why we were talking. The interview processed ended at that point. As I tell the story it seems not so bad...until you realize this process drug out over 3 months often with no communication from the recruiting firm or D&B. The process was inefficient and you could almost feel how they were playing the people interviewing against each...the entire process felt slezzy and unprofessional. And that should have been my read flag.

    While employed the experience was truly awful.

    The manager I worked for pulled me aside several times to speak poorly about other employees on our team and express frustration in their need for development. The manager was truly in over their head and overwhelmed with the role. Very demanding in expectations but did a very poor job of setting expectaitons laying out a clear path to success for those who reported to her. In my case I don't think we had one scheduled meeting to discuss expectations around the job or for her to clearly communicate expectrations for my first project. Although it was my first project in a new organization we spent about 10 mins discussing it on a Thursday afternoon. I stayed up all night working on a draft the document that night because she asked for a draft document by Friday for a Monday early afternoon meeting. Had we some time scheduled on Thursday as oppose to a quick 10 min conversation I would have know how she expected to have a final version of the document by early afternoon Monday that was client ready.

    Her relationship with her boss was characterized by frequent communication via face-to-face, phone, emails, etc and should have been a model for her with her direct reports, but was not. When she reviewed my on-boarding plan in the only one on one meeting we had (which was not scheduled) she read and responded to several emails her boss sent ultimately leaving me in the huddle room alone for 10 minutes. As a manager of people she did not seem to realize that she had an additional client...her direct reports.

    Engagement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntington, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntington, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at D&B in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was with JVKelly, a D&B Company. They began interviewing in June, with a flurry of phone interviews and in-person interviews. The people were very pleasant and helpful. However, they didn't seem to be well prepared for the actual interviews. It did cause me some concern on how seriously they take the hiring process. Every time there was follow-up, they were at least twice as long as indicated and did not return voicemail or email in the interim. This went on for several months. Eventually and offer was made, but for a different position than they had originally posted.
