    Open (Non-specific) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at CEB in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Several years ago I worked for the company as an intern, and I'm on the job market again. My former manager passed my resume on to a recruiter, and she gave me an informal, non-position-specific phone interview to get to know me. I then completed an online assessment package, including a logic test and a couple of general work ethic assessments. I haven't heard anything from them yet.

    Interview Questions
    • The logic test was extremely difficult, but I'm sure it's difficult for everyone. I wouldn't reveal any specific questions even if I could remember them, because they're confidential.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CEB in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Took about 2 weeks for an email and then it was followed by a phone interview. The person who I interview with was very pleasant, and answered all my questions regarding pay, vacation time, religious holiday etc. The questions that were asked were very general questions, for example, what would I contribute to the company, where do I see myself within the next 2 years.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at CEB in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I met with CEB at a career fair at school and was told that my resume seemed to align with employees that the company considered for this position. However, I was quickly rejected after applying with no interview. I later got an interview when a friend who was hired recommended me and was requested to fill out an assessment online. The interview was about half an hour and took place over the phone. About half of it was discussing the company and position and answering questions I had. This was followed by about 3 or 4 questions designed to be a behavioral interview. However these were so vague as to be almost unhelpful, especially since they asked to focus on specific instances. My interviewer was nice but it seemed ill-suited for me to sell myself to the company, especially in such a short amount of time.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CEB.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard interview process. Behavioral questions and walk through of my resume. I applied online in about September, got contacted in late November/early December to do a phone interview. Following this there was a critical reasoning online test and a personality test. Last, there was a 2 person Skype interview. Overall, supportive process, no questions that were out of the blue or too challenging.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CEB.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty stress-free. I applied through my school and a recruiter reached out to me shortly after. I had a phone interview with her and a couple weeks later she informed me that I would be moving on to the final round. The final round was set in Chicago, IL with 4 other students (they hold multiple rounds like these throughout the year). There were several presentations...I walked out of there knowing so much more about the company than I did walking in. Everyone is extremely nice; most BDAs are straight out of college. I then had my behavioral interview with one of the managers and a recruiter. They were very nice as well. It was basic behavioral questions, nothing too hard. Just be confident in yourself, know why you want the position and why you want to work at CEB.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CEB.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview went great, talked with the recruiter and established a quick and friendly bond. Quickly completed the assessment after the phone interview, returned it to my recruiter and was contacted within 2 days about being flown out for a final round interview. Final round was not as planned, was supposed to be a panel interview with 2 individuals and only one showed up, and did not address the absence until I asked about it. Behavioral interviews are difficult and I prepped well, but I wasn't asked questions like "why do you want to work here?" or other simplistic questions that I expected. Went straight into the behavioral questions after a bit of small talk.
