    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Berkshire Hathaway (Sacramento, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview - very brief. Short online assessment completed at home. Received a call to go in and interview. Completed another longer assessment. Interview very brief - did not ask me any questions, simply asked if I had any questions...it was strange, as if they already found someone but were continuing their interviews anyway.

    Interview

    I had a long interview over google hangouts and was offered the job in 10 minutes. It didn't seem legit to me, so I started doing some research and then realized that there's a scam going on with this company. I called their corporate office and it was confirmed that it was not legit.

    Interview

    I had an interview over google hangout with a Mr Luthor Bryan for a work at home position and got hired after an hour interview
    I read the information on the computer from a link that he sent to me.
    I am very concerned now due to comments that I now have read through Glassdoor. If this is not a legitimate job why would Glassdoor post jobs for it?

    The interview went well. They express a lot of interest in high school and college grades. They ask for your gpa, act, and sat scores as well. Overall they are very friendly over the phone. By far one of the best experiences I've had with any company over the phone.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Berkshire Hathaway (Bullhead City, AZ) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I talked to myself out loud during the interview as if there was no one else in the room and rooms. The interview was a roam from room to room patiently describing each distinct view of people type and character first before getting into products, locations, breath and richness of product offer, competitive structures. It was there in an open interview that the revelation was evident as a revenue growth lagging indicator to talent selection that I got the job.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Berkshire Hathaway (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    After phone interview with hiring manager, invited to face-to-face with the team. Several 'what-if' scenarios presented having to do with interactions with subject matter experts. I believe they were interested in diplomacy skills. Technical skills tested via example of output from database and question "How would you frame your script to pull these results?". Also quizzed on expertise with requirements gathering and documentation, test methodologies, data warehouse concepts. Group of five people on interview panel. Not stressful; relaxed environment.
