    Engagement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Huntington, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntington, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 months - interviewed at D&B in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was with JVKelly, a D&B Company. They began interviewing in June, with a flurry of phone interviews and in-person interviews. The people were very pleasant and helpful. However, they didn't seem to be well prepared for the actual interviews. It did cause me some concern on how seriously they take the hiring process. Every time there was follow-up, they were at least twice as long as indicated and did not return voicemail or email in the interim. This went on for several months. Eventually and offer was made, but for a different position than they had originally posted.

    Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at D&B in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Candidates are found using an outsourced vendor/ recruiter. Starts off with the standard telephone interview before being brought in. From what I have seen, most candidates end up meeting with 3-4 people on their first round and then brought in to meet with another 2-3 if they make the first cut. Each interviewer usually agrees before going in to focus on one core area (i.e Leadership ) Standard check off list is use by all to review after interviews.

    Software Tester Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at D&B in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was intimated about a walk-in by a consultancy. It was at 10 AM . At 10:15 they started a written test for 1 hour within the bay.The questions were ambiguous and the pictures they had given were vague and not printed with good quality. After the test, they started verifying the answer, I could hear the persons talking while correcting the paper and it seemed that most of them did not know the answers to the questions and were struggling to verify the papers!. I lost any good impressions I had about the company. As I passed the written test, I faced a technical interview, which was also okay, but was told that if i were selected I would have to stretch times on most days. After I passed this level, I had a meeting with the manager who told me that it had a 8 hour culture, which confused me. After this round I had a meeting with the HR manager. After asking all details, he said he would get back to me on the next day and it has not happened and now it is few days later.
