Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in July 2015.

Interview

Contacted through a recruiter. Brief screening interview with her, followed by a phone interview with CEB HR team. Final round interview was a video conference call over a web application called hirevue. Very straight forward interview, asked about work experience and then about 5 behavioral questions. Not overly difficult if you follow the CAR apporach.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at CEB in July 2015.

    Interview

    The phone interview was pretty easy. They broke it up into 3 parts, the first part is the person who is interviewing you tells you about themselves, then they ask you behavioral questions to get to know you, and lastly they ask you job related questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CEB in June 2015.

    Interview

    I received a call from the recruiter shortly after I applied. We went over my background and resume. Once she thought I would be an ideal fit for the position, she told me I had to pass the aptitude test (you complete it online). After passing the aptitude test, I was scheduled for an interview via video conference ( I don't live in Chicago yet, I'm on the west coast). I had to submit an accomplishment record (writing sample) prior to the interview. The recruiter was pretty helpful and gave me tips to do well on the interview. The actual interview itself felt difficult. I felt like the interviewer kept trying to throw me off, but once I touched based with the recruiter a few days after the interview she offered me the position.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CEB.

    Interview

    Everyone within the hiring team was helpful and welcoming. There were several stages to the interview - screening, multiple online assessments, and a final face-to-face interview. Process took just a little over two weeks. Company very much focuses on diversity. Know your background, own it. Be confident. I would say, go in to these interviews with at least 4 or 5 examples with a STAR approach.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CEB.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an outside recruiter who introduced the idea of interviewing. I was then contacted by the talent acquisition department for the initial interview. They dove straight into behavioral questions, which caught me a little off guard. I made it to the second round with an assessment that takes around an hour. Following they requested I complete an accomplishment record to have written record prior to my final interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CEB in March 2015.

    Interview

    About a week after I completed their online application, I received an email about doing a phone interview with an HR rep. The woman I spoke with was perfectly nice, but seemed a bit stiff and like she wanted to quickly go through a list of questions. After completing the phone interview, I was then told that I would be sent a reasoning test to complete within one week of my phone interview. The woman I spoke with told me that after my test was received, I would hear back from her one way or another regarding where I stood in the interview process. I have never heard anything back from the company, which I obviously understand means that I did not get an offer. Not receiving an offer is completely fine, but I would have preferred to have received an email or something after I had spent the time doing the phone interview and completing the exam.
