I applied online - interviewed at CEB in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online and the recruiter emailed me to schedule a phone interview. It was mostly typical behavioral questions. A little over a week I heard that I didn't get advanced to the next round. They are looking for someone who had a capstone research project and other research experiences in a corporate setting.
Interview Question – Tell me about your research experiences. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at CEB.
Interview Details – I spoke to the recruiter a couple of times who then arranged for me to take an online test. After I passed, she arranged an interview with the hiring manager and the hiring manager's boss. After the initial interview, I was given feedback and was given an offer within a couple of weeks.
Interview Question – Not too many difficult questions, was required to write a few responses to behavioral questions and essentially expounded on them during the interview. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate too much, but wish I had. I am working harder than I have in a long time for about $20k less.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at CEB in June 2009.
Interview Details – It was a quick and efficient process. 1 screening by a recruiter. A cognitive test and a personality test. 1 interview by the hiring manager. Offer. I've learned - in retrospect - that CEB has a pretty unique culture, so the testing is important to make sure there is a fit.
Interview Question – Most of the questions - since it wa a sales role - were stories on wins I was most proud of and how I handled difficult customers. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They low-balled me at first. In the screening call, I had said what my salary and commission expectations were and the recruiter said that was fine/doable. The offer was $15k below the high end of my range and $10k below the low end of the range. I asked that they split the difference on my base salary (add $12,500 to the offer) and they did.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CEB.
Interview Details – I was contacted via linkedin and was asked some very basic questions on my background, and was quickly offered an in person interview. The in person interview was a similar format to the phone interview, "tell me about a time when.." What they were looking for was 1) context 2) action taken 3) result. I was offered the position the same day.
Interview Question – Nothing too difficult, or unexpected. They were mostly getting a sense to see if you would fit in culturally. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They would not budge on salary. It is expected that after on-boarding I will quickly move up but would not even consider a signing bonus. The recruiter I believe was fairly green but eager to make me feel comfortable in the process.
Interviewed at CEB
Interview Details – Initial telephonic interview, few smart tests you must clear, then more rounds of interviews.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CEB in July 2009.
Interview Details – I went through two phone interviews before being brought in for an in-person interview. I was joined by two other applicants in the lobby for a tour of the building, including the cafeteria and other facilities.
We were then separated for one-on-one interviews with three different CEB employees. Overall, took a few hours of time. Everyone was incredibly friendly, and the culture felt very collegiate.
Interview Question – Some of the questions included, how would you decorate your cubicle if you worked here? other than this, what would be your dream job? where do you see yourself in 5 years? Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at CEB in August 2013.
Interview Details – I received an invitation for a phone screening the day after I submitted my application. The phone screening was very smooth; I was expecting behavior type questions but we discussed at length my resume and what opportunity I was looking for. The woman who interviewed me was great; she stressed that this is was as much me learning about them as it was them learning about me. It was a very natural conversation. It didn't feel forced like many other phone screenings can be. I'm currently waiting for a response to see if I advance to the in-person interview.
Interview Question – I was expecting a lot of behavior questions but we spoke at length about my resume and experience Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CEB.

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate but I should have. Someone else who came after me negotiated so if they tell you the rate is set, it is negotiable.
Interviewed at CEB
Interview Details – Applied online then had a short call with HR for screening purposes. From there I completed two online assessments and went on-site for a final interview. The first was a behavioral interview and then a case study interview with various team members.
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at CEB.
Interview Details – Sent in my resume via college. Was notified that I got an interview but had to take a (IQ) test first. 2 CEB employees/alumni of my college (both very awkward, lacked social skills) came to my college's career center to hold the interviews. It was one round - 30 minutes about my resume and research experience, 30 minutes of a case study.
Interview Question – Don't be afraid to ask for specific information during the case study. I relied on my mental calculator and after awhile the interviewer told me he would give me the numbers I wanted if I just asked. Answer Question
