Helpful (2)No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL).
After reaching out directly to the head of recruiting, we had a great 45 minute phone call about the role and how I might be a solid fit. At the end of the call, the head of recruiting said he wanted to put me in touch with the hiring manager in the next two days. Then I never heard from them again.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.
I was emailed for an initial phone interview. I scheduled a phone interview with the recruiter, yet she never called. After leaving emails and voicemails about rescheduling the interview, I emailed recruiting managers mentioning this interview yet received no response. This place seems wildly unprofessional.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.
I interviewed on campus through my university's career fair. This interview was behavioral questions. I got into the next round interview in Chicago, but they were so unorganized from this point forward. It took a month for me to have my interview in Chicago, and after I finally did, I did not hear back from them for 3 weeks. When I did hear back 3 weeks later, I got an automated rejection email.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.
I only had one interview. It was in person over 2 hours where I met with 4 people individually for a half hour each. There weren't many technical questions, mostly just getting to know me.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL).
I applied to a position and got a call from a Conversant recruiter. He hooked me up with the hiring manager who called me and asked me a bunch of questions and I answered and he seemed to be impressed and did not say anything negative. On the other hand, he commented about how certain skills would be useful in his team. Then I waited a week and nothing. I emailed the recruiter and he said that they were looking for "AdTec" experience. Now AdTec was never part of the job description and it was not asked by the hiring manager during the interview. How did this suddenly become important that they had to reject me after more than a week? Why did they even call me if it was so critical and it was not to be seen on my resume? Conversant wasted my time.

The interview process was very simple. You will go to their office, and meet with two employees. They will ask basically the same questions, which can be confusing since you will feel like you are repeating yourself. They will want you to know what is the company's culture and in what ways you will have a great performance working with them.
- Behavioral questions, and what do you know about the company and the program Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.
I met with 4 people over 3 hours. The hiring manager, his boss, a peer and an internal client. All went through the same script of stock questions and it quickly became apparent that I was simply there to round out the numbers. The company itself does has some quite interesting technology and appears well positioned within the market. That insight though was provided by a sales manager who I chatted to in the lift on the way down. Prior to that, I was given no insight at all about the business of the company by the project management team. They might as well have been making widgets for all they seemed to care.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.
Applied through my university campus website; it was an on campus recruitment interviewing process. Interviewed with a current employee who asked basic questions such as my experience, background, what I am passionate about. A couple days later I found out that I was chosen for the next round and asked what day works best for me (they gave you the dates and you had to choose from), and I didn't hear back from them to confirm the date until a week later. Then a few days later they sent an email that was supposed to go to an individual person indicating that they were not chosen to move on with the process, but instead went to the whole recruitment pool (very embarrassing). Then after a few hours they emailed me back for the glitch in their system and misspelled my name (seriously?). After all this confusion, I went to their office for an in person interview with two employees. They asked pretty basic questions as in why conversant, tell me about yourself, describe your biggest accomplishment and worst failure, etc.. It seemed that each person was happy with my answers and seemed impressed. Sent all interviewers thank you letters. They said they'd get back to me within 1-2 weeks. 3 weeks later, no response. Sent the recruiter a follow up email, no response. Finally after about 3 weeks and a half I get an AUTOMATED rejection email. Wow, after all that time, I get an automated email (with no explanation as to why), not even an email reply from the recruiter that I had sent a follow up email to. Extremely unprofessional and rude. Made me think twice about working for the company if they had extended an offer..so I'm glad it didn't work out.

Helpful (1)Declined OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Conversant (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.
I had one on campus interview and one on site interview which was interviewed by 6 people from 6 departments. The IT people who work at Conversant are great. Most of the interviews were very casual and they preferred to chat with me other than asking me the behavioral questions.
- They will ask you some technical questions. However, the questions are very easy if you have computer science background. And don't worry if you don't know how to answer. Just be honest with them and you should be fine. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
salary is too low

Still going through the initial phone conversation. I have been waiting for the phone interview to happen. Hopefully it will happen soon. I have been requested for a business apprentice interview opportunity, in contact with HR now figuring out the time.
