    I worked at CareerBuilder as an intern (less than an year)


    Worked with highly intelligent people who were very easy to work with. Being new, everyone was very willing to show me the ropes. There is a very casual and team environment in the workplace.


    None I can think of.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CareerBuilder in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    This place is a joke, literally!!! I applied for a position. They contacted me for an interview. Now, I have had positions withe Fortune 500 companies and have conducted many interviews and you know after the first interview whether a candidate is a good fit or not. I was contacted for interviews with CB 4 times. I went for 4 interviews and a role playing assessment which the managers rated me on my phone skills a 9/10.

    This oddysey of circus interviews began in October 2014. I was informed to reach out to them in January, which I did. They replied with the usual PC email of, "we found a better match". My question is, why the 4 interviews and assessment role play where the managers stated to me that I would be a great fit. What a joke!!!
