    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Short Hills, NJ).

    Interview

    Met with every person in department, so although the process was lengthy, it wasn't too difficult. Getting past the phoner is key.....after that, it seems to be more about personality fit. Good people there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Short Hills, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    At the first two phone interview rounds, it was fine, process was steady and smooth. and the recruiter was being all enthusiastic. Then for the next round, I came in for interview at their office. It was a long and confusing commute from Manhattan --2 hours from Penn station so I was already discouraged. I had to take a cab to the office from the station and arrived at their office finally. It was basic greyish corporate office, does not look like my go-to since I'm more into creative space with a lot of lights. The interview went for almost two hours, met with leaders of the team. I sent them a follow-up email one week after the interview and never heard back from the recruiter. After two weeks of waiting, they finally let me know that I did not get the job.

    IT Security Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Parsippany, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I started here as an intern - that "interview" process was great. Got in, no problem. Short notice to start, but I didn't care. After the internship was over I was offered a full time position. Kind of. I was up for hire, told I would be hired, but had to wait around for about a month before being told to apply for the position. As my hiring manager after that was my previous manager, the interview was more of a formality than anything. We both knew I could do what was needed because I had been doing it for six months already. The process was, more than anything, frustrating as my peers who had started their internship earlier (and thus were up for hire earlier) did not have to go through the same process - they just signed papers and were off and away - but due to some changes in leadership the process changed. This is fine, of course, but nobody knew what the process had changed to. That was less fine.

    Received a request for a phone interview about one week after submitting application. Responded with availability twice over the course of two week and received no email in return.

    Interview

    I received the email from HR recruiter and got a phone interview(10 mins) with HR. Next, I had a technical interview(20ms) with manager. But they suddenly called me for the interview without any notice. Then they should reschedule it. Technical interview was very specific and focused on details of my resume. They required me to explain everything such as method, code.
