    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.

    Friendly and organized interview process. Recruiters have good control of the process and flow of interaction. They did good job of describing the roles and responsibilities of the position and were prepared to answer detailed questions.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at CEB (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Since this was an internal interview, I did a brief in-person interview (in lieu of a phone screen) with an HR staffer assigned to the L&D department. After that, I was invited to a full day of interviews and a 30-minute mock content delivery session with a panel of prospective team members.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had an initial call with an HR recruiter, then a separate interview with them a few days later. I then was asked to complete a competency test and an accomplishment record with three behavioral questions. The final interview was with two current employees and consisted of a handful of behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview process took about 3 to 4 weeks. I applied through an employee referral and went through about 2 different phone calls with a recruiter. From there I had an in-person interview with two different individuals. From what I thought was an overall positive interview experience I received no word for about two weeks on the status of my interview. Overall, the recruiter was somewhat not helpful in regards to what my role was going to be. I also was very disappointed in how long it took the company to get back to me on my interview.

    Research Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    One phone interview, some online assessments (Hogan and Raven assessments), and a 3-part in-person interview. The interviews were standard behavioral interviews, an "intellectual curiosity exercise" discussing whether it was important to measure happiness in employees, and a quantitative exercise involving designing a statistical model and interpreting graphs. The last interview person didn't walk me out, so I was left to wander around the building and find my own way out, which was not only awkward but also probably unsafe for the company. Once I got the offer, there was also a background check using a truly incompetent and frustrating third-party vendor called HireRight. These days there is also a drug test.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CEB (Arlington, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Before my phone interview, my recruiter asked me to complete 2 online assessments (personality tests to see how you fit into CEB/Gartner). The recruiter I spoke with during our 30 minute phone interview was very kind. She asked me to walk her through my resume, and then proceeded to ask me 3 - 4 behavioral interview questions.
