    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Neustar.

    Interview Details

    Unexpected lengthy process with an unnecessarily long online application process of which the information is not used at all in the process. Hiring managers talk more about the benefits and the wonderful workplace than the actual position and what needs to be accomplished. For the size of company the processes are very arduous and cumbersome, the timing of the offer was longer than expected.

    Interview Questions
    • Some questions about managing difficult management situations and how you would solve them.   Answer Question

    Little back and forth, do not move on basics but will move on cash.
