I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Short Hills, NJ).
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.
- How do you handle difficult situations 1 Answer
Did not negotiate.

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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Short Hills, NJ) in April 2015.
I participated in many rounds of interviews all which were personality based. Some of these occurred in person and several over the phone. All interviews wanted to ensure that I would fit in with the team and the D&B culture. These interviews were not difficult just took time.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet.

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

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet.
Had one interview with the internal recruiter, one interview with hiring manager and one phone interview with the next level leader. In person interview was mainly the manager telling me about the team I would be working with and their duties/work habits/responsibilities.
- I was recruited and so the recruiter asked me why at this time I was interested in speaking with D&B Answer Question
The hiring manager asked what my current base pay was and once I told him he said he would beat it by $10k

I applied online – interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet.
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. Found that the job was no longer posted on the website and my account was no longer active. Very disappointing experience.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet in January 2015.
Purely behavioral/fit questions. I had a phone interview with an HR rep. Then, I gave divisional/locational preferences. After about a week, I had another interview with a manager in that particular division. That interview was also fit/behavioral.

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.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Dun & Bradstreet (Malibu, CA) in December 2014.
Applied online for the position and then the recruiter(also an intern) gives a call and ask basic HR questions and availability. Then I was called onsite at their office in Malibu and interviewed for 1 hour approximately with the hiring manager. After the interview was shown the office space and how the employees work. Few days later some other HR person e-mails and says that I have not been selected.
- 1) Rate yourself on some languages which hiring manager has shortlisted. 2) What is stack, queue, heap, tree? How will you explain these concept to 5 yr old? 3) SQL queries, joins. 4) 2 programming questions - insert elements in array based on some comparison, other I don't remember. 1 Answer
