    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about 2 weeks later for the 1st round phone interview. The phone interview consisted of classic behavioral questions. There were a lot of scenario based questions based upon your leadership, work ethic, work organization, and teamwork capabilities. The interviewer was pleasant, but she expressed at the end of the interview they were only looking for immediate hires at this time. When I applied, I had thought I had applied to a summer position. She told she enjoyed our conversation and wanted me to get back to her in 3 weeks. I followed up several times and got no response. While the interviewer was kind during the interview, it was rude not to follow up.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was an overall easy process. Ask simple questions such as who you were what school you go to. Also ask for personality type questions along with scenarios. The lady was very nice and engaging. It is important to know different aspects about the company as that is one of the questions they will ask. Also it is important to know why you want that certain position and why CEB would be a good fit for you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had a behavioral interview followed by another case interview and behavioral interview. I remember the case interview being much easier than I expected, while the behavioral was a tad more difficult. When applying for this position in particular, I would suggest coming up with very specific examples where you used quantitative reasoning to solve a problem.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews in total. One preliminary phone interview that lasted about 15 minutes. That interview was about the position itself, what salary I might expect, previous experience, very basic but nice interview. Then I was selected for 3 more interviews that would determine if I was given the actual position. The first of the 3 interviews was in person with the person I would be working under. That lasted for about 45min-1hr. The next was a phone interview lasting another 30 minutes. The last interview was in person and took another 30minutes.

    Interview

    Took about 2 weeks for an email and then it was followed by a phone interview. The person who I interview with was very pleasant, and answered all my questions regarding pay, vacation time, religious holiday etc. The questions that were asked were very general questions, for example, what would I contribute to the company, where do I see myself within the next 2 years.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very short. I was qualified for the position but the only thing that seemed to matter was whether I had business to business sales experience. I have many years of sales experience (non-retail) but that wasn't good enough. The interview was effectively over after I told them that I had no business to business sales experience. Don't waste your time applying for this position unless you have this specific skill set. You will be very quickly disqualified otherwise.
