    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CBC Companies (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    I discussed my education and personal background with the department manager. He listed off and briefly described the applications and services his department employees tested and supported. I returned for a group interview, apparently to help the manager see how I would interact with some of his employees. It didn't seem to matter to the manager, or the company, what my skillset was.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CBC Companies.

    Interview

    Was not asked any questions of substance. Asked to explain my resume, asked about working in an office. I knew I had the job before I even finished. You are given a tour of the whole building (shouldn't you do this when you get hired? Just a suggestion) I got a call with my acceptance on my drive home. It seemed like they were trying WAY too hard and we're desperate for people. I should have really taken note of that before I accepted.

    Negotiation

    There was none, however I was caught off guard with the call of acceptance as I was driving home. I think they do this to get you to accept fast.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CBC Companies (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    Got a phone call and scheduled an interview. The interview was a JOKE and consisted of a few normal interview questions like previous experience and the rest was personal chit chat. I knew when I left I would get a call and I did the next day. The only reason I accepted was I knew my company was going out of business.

    Negotiation

    They don't pay for crap so don't expect to get more money out of them. If you do, there is either different management or you got lucky. I know people that have worked here for several years and still aren't happy about pay.

    Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CBC Companies (Erie, PA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    All work is hired through a temp agency. Interview is simple. It was clear the measuring stick for employment involved simple computer skills (like, being able to open up email, which, as it turned out, a couple of their current employees couldn't even do), and depending on the position, whether or not you liked being on a telephone daily. The description of the open positions did not make it clear, however, the differences in workload/expectations and future salaries. Ask questions if you actually want to work there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBC Companies (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    After preliminary round with recruiting services, got to meet with Linda, who ran the Due Diligence project I would be working on. She took great care to show me around and explain different functions of the organization as well as introducing me to management. The interview was one-on-one and we went over prior work history, education, and applicable skills. She also asked how much I knew about the work they did, which at the time was not very much. But she was very friendly and understanding, seemed to just want to gauge how capable you are.
