    Business Development Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Keswick, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at CEB (Keswick, VA).

    Interview

    Interview process was overall a good experience. I met the recruiter at my college career fair. After having a good interaction I received a first round interview with the same lady I met at the career fair. The first round was a 30 minute behavioral interview. The second round was a Skype interview with two managers. The second round was more difficult, and consisted of more technical questions such as “what does the company do”. The process took about 3 weeks.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CEB.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter at a career fair, and scheduled a quick 30 minute call. Went over my experience, and the job role to make sure it was a good fit. Received feedback, and then was sent to another recruiter for a longer behavioral interview, again by phone. The next step was an in person/video interview, but I didn't take that step.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CEB.

    This is mainly an internal hiring process. The best way to move into this role is to start in an entry role and communicate with folks around the office and get a feel for the work. Be very open to relocation and changing practices.

    Associate Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CEB.

    Interview

    I applied online and they reached out via email. I went through the process all the until the final interview, where it came down to me and one other candidate.

    I was good about keeping in contact with HR, but they were terrible letting me know about the status I was in. I had to put my insecurities aside to email and check in a couple times weeks after they said they would get back to me.

    In the end, I was left hanging with not even a rejection email that I didn't get the position finally.

    If you can separate your feelings of rejection, then apply. I think it's a bit sad to not let a candidate know they didn't get the job, especially after going through 3-4 interviews. I was invested in the company and this position, so it was a bit disappointing to not even hear back after being so personable in previous contact.

    Enterprise Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CEB (Washington, DC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Terrible. So robotic versus trying to actually know the person and their background & how it relates to the role. They did not provide tools when asked to help prep for meeting, managers were not prepared and seemed scattered. Mostly read from their laptops versus actually having a conversation.

    Note to management - giving someone 45 minutes to prep for a presentation is not normal. Most organizations give the details for the presentation at least 24 hours in advance so the candidate can prep and really show how they would present versus being put on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to figure out what a client's concerns were without them telling you?   Answer Question
