    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at CEB in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple, email of interest, took forever getting in contact afterwards, but might have been because of snow and weather. Then phone interview walking through resume, then invitation for 3 hour in person interview. Three rounds with mid-level execs, 2 hours behavioral, one case study. Nothing particularly difficult, just situations and how i would deal with them, past experiences, rewarding skills and preferred work habits.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at CEB.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was divided into two: the behavioral interview, and the case interview the day after. Each one lasted about 1 hour, and the questions were fair. However, do not expect for them to notify you about whether you got the job or not. Quite unprofessional

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were fair and expected. The case question was the eye drop one that has been mentioned before. You are asked to calculate market size, expected price of the product, etcetera.   Answer Question

    Behavioral interview and case interview, both of which lasted about an hour. The behavioral interview questions they asked matched the samples I found on their site pretty closely, and the case was one that I think they'd re-used from a previous year so I think they don't change very often.

    Interview Questions
    • I stumbled on questions about process improvements and leadership in previous positions. They're definitely looking for a task-action-result format in answers to their questions. The case was relatively straightforward, but you have to ask a lot of questions to get all the relevant info, though they'll give you a lot of it. Be ready to do long multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction by hand during the interview.   Answer Question

    I found this opportunity through our on-campus recruitment. Afterwards, I went to a couple recruitment events hosted at my school. The people are very kind and down to earth. They seem capable and passionate about their jobs.

    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.

    I applied through college or university. 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 Questions
    • 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

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at CEB in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed through my campus career center. Before going in for the interview, I had to complete an online personality inventory and an online IQ type test that involved identifying patterns in shapes. Then two sixty-minute interviews. Fit interview was fine - typical fit questions and a lot of behavioral questions. Case interview question was apparently the same as every other analyst's.

    I suppose then they choose who they want to make an offer to. I wouldn't know, as it's been over a month since I initially interviewed and they STILL haven't given me a final answer. About two weeks after the interview they sent me an email saying they wanted to continue considering me and were "ironing out logistical details" around offers and hoped to make a final decision in the next few weeks (that was a month ago). Two weeks after that, they sent me another email apologizing for the delay and saying they're still interested in considering me. I haven't heard from them since. In response to their first email a month ago, I replied and said I had a decision deadline and asked if it would be possible to get an answer by the deadline. No one even bothered to answer that email of mine. My interviewers were nice, but this process is putting a very negative taste in my mouth. I understand that I'm not their first choice, but it seems rather inconsiderate to take this long to give me an answer; I have interviewed with other small firms and they've made their decisions much faster.
