    Interview

    I applied on a Monday. I was called Tuesday and had a 20 minute phone interview. The young lady said she liked me and would get with her boss and try to coordinate an in person interview. She called back 15 mins later and I had an interview scheduled for Thursday. Very great interview. They were upfront about what they wanted and now I am working for them. Great people!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CIBT (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Got called for a phone interview. Got called to set up in person interview. Arrived at CIBT's front desk and they sent me to a totally different company down the hall. After sitting in the Pearson company down the hall for 10 mins, the rep told me that I had the wrong company. I told her I was here for CIBT and she walked me back down to the company that I originally came to. Apparently the front desk reps was not aware of an interview. The rep told me to have a seat and that someone would be bringing me out documents to sign. After sitting there for 15 mins, a lady comes out to hand me a whole application as if they had none of my info on file. While filling out the app, about 10 mins had passed and another lady came out and said "Your interview was at 9:00. I told her that I had been sent to the wrong company and that I had been here for quite some time now. She goes on to say "well we have a meeting so we cant interview you". I said I wish I would have known that 30 mins ago. And that was it. No sorry, no reschedule, nothing. Just a complete hour commute downtown wasted. The two reps that sent me down to the wrong company witnessed this and never spoke up about their mistake. This is a totally unprofessional company. Even after reading all of the horrible and negative reviews I still gave it a chance and wasted my complete time. The next day I see them back on indeed hiring for the same position. Im pretty sure they took a look at my african american face and had a change of heart. Do not work for this company. Everyone looked sad, over worked and stressed out. The manager can barely speak english.

    Interview

    My initial interview was with the headhunter, this was followed a couple of days later by a case study.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CIBT.

    Interview

    got a call form the recruiter, then a call from the hiring manager, who invited me for an in person interview...the interview went over the scheduled end time by 45 mins because the VP thought that they could fit me into another position as well, therefore, interview with the hiring manager of the other position...it was totally unexpected. Anyways...by the end of the interview, the manager who invited me in told me that everything was great, I should hear back from the "very soon"...hey guess what? has been over a week and I've followed up twice...no one from their end even has the courtesy of telling me whats going on!
    Since they kept on emphasizing how many hats a person need to wear at their company, I'm pretty sure if hired, they will have me do both jobs while only paying me the salary of 1

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CIBT.

    Interview

    Very basic interview. You will meet with the Director of the office. The interview consisted of a couple basic interview questions to find out about your work experience and to tell you about the position. They were very upfront about what the job entails and what to expect when it comes to compensation. Then you will take a very simple aptitude test which consists of basic math and customer service skills questions.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CIBT in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed twice. The first time with the Director. The second interview was with the Operations Manager. Both interviews went well! However, I never heard anything back? If a potential candidates interviews with you; it's because they like the organization and need a job. Have enough decency and integrity to inform them if they've got the job or not. It reflects negatively on CIBT when a candidate is left to infer that they weren't considered. Radio silence is not cool!
