    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CEB (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    2 interviews, one telephone interview and another face to face at the CEB office in London.
    Then waited 4 weeks and emailed 3 of the recruiters for feedback and no one bothered to respond. I don't get how a big organisation such as CEB can treat candidates in this manner.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CEB (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    1. Online application
    2. Telephone Interview
    3. Assessment Centre

    I submitted my application online and received a telephone interview invitation. The telephone interview was very straightforward. The recruiter just tried to find out about your previous work experience and asked a few behavioural questions.
    I got invited to the AC but decided not to go, as I was not 100 percently convinced about the position.

    Southbank - Event Officer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at CEB (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    45 minute interview and they asked about 7 questions.

    The room was very small so I was up close to the panel, this was distracting as I was able to see what they were writing on the paper which intimated me.

    The team seems really lovely and easy going. I was not prepared enough for the interview

    BD Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at CEB (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Firstly, I had sent in my CV a few wèeks ago but had no response, but got an interview through an agency, odd. The agency asked if I would like a call with CEB or a face to face as the first step in the process, I chose f2f to show my keenness and met the HR person in the London office, which felt a bit vacant and void of personality. She was late for the meeting and had not booked a room either, not a good start. We went through my CV and sh asked some general questions. About 10 minutes in I felt she was bored and wasn't making much of an effort in the conversation, and was proven right when I saw her look away a few times when I was providing clear, detailed answers; she came across quite cold and disinterested. I closed her and ended the meeting after 45 minutes, 15 minutes ahead of schedule as I felt she wasn't engaged. The feedback I got was that I wasn't open in my answers and was defensive, which is not true. CEB have an elevated opinion of themselves, if you're lively, energetic and open you will not be accepted there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CEB (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Got through to the phone interview. Essentially it was a 30-minute discussion with the recruiter. However they stated that 80% of the time you will be cold-calling. Lost interest, as this is not what I wanted.

    Make sure you know a lot about the company, since they will as you plenty of questions about it.
