Data Manager Interview

Data Manager
Chico, CA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Build.com.

Interview Details – I started as a temp and was interviewed by the temp agency. Now the interview process is a little more difficult. A perspective employee will be reviewed by all hiring managers for the position they are applying for. Those who are accepted have a phone screening, and if their phone screening goes well, they get an interview. Usually an offer or refusal is made after one

Interview Question – Be prepared for questions that try to judge who *you* are as a person. The managers at Build really want to see the individual come out in an interview, so occasionally the questions can be pretty random.   View Answer

Product Data Specialist Interview

Product Data Specialist

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Build.com.

Interview Details – Usually takes a couple weeks to a month to hear back for a phone screen. Once you get the phone screen takes a couple days for them to schedule an interview.
