    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online after finding the opportunity in TargetJobs. There were several stages:
    1. Phone screen (brief conversation about CEB and the role, more for HR to tell us about them), she immediately invited me to...
    2. Assessment day, which consisted of several talks from CEB employees, Q&A. The assessed portions were a 1-hour long competency-based interview (quite intense) and then pitches to all the managers on a random topic (mine was favourite band).
    3. Online test - you will usually do this before the assessment day, just personality based questions
    4. Phone call with offer

    Before my phone interview, my recruiter asked me to complete 2 online assessments (personality tests to see how you fit into CEB/Gartner).

    Executive Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CEB in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted on LinkedIn as a passive candidate by a recruiter and had a positive conversation about the position itself. It sounded interesting and I was interested in learning more. I was then instructed to apply online, which I did after a full work day at my current, well-paying job. After applying online, before even speaking to a hiring manager or having an in-person interview, I had to take a weird competency exam that didn't align with the job description at all and one of those awful, bogus personality tests. This is lazy recruiting and tells you a lot about a company's culture when the leadership makes hiring decisions based upon computerized testing before even meeting a human being.
