    Account Management Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Very standard interview process. 15-minute phone screen followed by one-hour on-site followed by offer. Easy.
    My on-site was weird because there was one person in the actual SF office where I was and one person on speakerphone, but the questions were somewhat challenging behavioral interview questions. They want you to answer using SAR - Situation, Action, Result. For example: I was house-sitting and the house caught fire. I knew I was the only one who could save the puppy, so I grabbed the puppy, found the emergency exit, and safely exited with the puppy, being sure to call emergency services and utilize the fire extinguisher. The puppy has now grown into an adult dog and the owners are still very thankful for my assistance.

    Account Management Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CEB (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend and given the contact information of a CEB recruiter. After emailing the recruiter we set up a time for a preliminary phone interview. The recruiter was friendly, helpful and genuinely made me even more excited about working for CEB after answering all of my questions. After the interview I took a behavioral test online, was asked to produce a writing sample answering a few more behavioral questions and interviewed with two managers from the San Francisco office. Overall the process was timely and professional. Although the interview questions were challenging both interviewers made me feel comfortable and excited about the job opportunity.

    Make sure to have specific examples to answer each question. They do not have to be related directly to sales but should demonstrate your ability to use specific transferable skills (communication, time management, persuasion, teamwork, etc.)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at CEB (San Francisco, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process begins over the phone with a recruitment officer from the CEB Headquarters located in Arlington, Virginia. It's a fairly standard phone interview with the typical questions (strengths, weaknesses, sales experience, etc.) After the phone interview, depending on your location, you will be invited to an in person interview in one of the regional offices. I interviewed in San Francisco with two managers. They are very interested in your communication skills and like to see your personality. So dress your best, smile, and show a little bit of yourself.
