    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Was a phone interview, lasted about 20 minutes. A friendly senior researcher interviewed me, asked me about my experience completing various clerical tasks. Explained that the position did not have a lot of growth and that the position was a support role. Even though the position says research coordinator, the needs of the company are mainly administrative and are not as research focused as the name implies.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at CareerBuilder.

    Fast interview. Short 30 minute conversation with recruiter and then a 1 hour interview that included a 15 minute training presentation.

By the following Monday, I had accepted the offer and began working shortly after.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Norcross, GA).

    Interview

    Overly difficult and lengthy interview process. I had to wait over 2 months for my second interview for a position they said they needed filled right away. I will never apply for a Careerbuilder position again. It was a horrible experience overall.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your change management methodology?
      What is the last professional book you read?
      What did you learn from the book?
      Tell me about a process improvement you made
      What would you have done better and why?
      Where did you store your Knowledge Base and FAQs in past positions?
      What do you think are the downfalls of using SharePoint?
      and a whole bunch of other very off the wall questions.
      I had three people in my interview and they were relentless with the questions. Most of the questions they ask were upper management level questions and were not tailored to the job description of the position I was interviewing for of Client Support Manager. They were very tough critics for a job that doesn't pay six figures.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CareerBuilder.

    Interview

    Overall the process is pretty quick. I applied and was hired less than two weeks later.

    I first had a phone interview with HR. It went pretty quickly and was focused on examples of my previous sales experience.

    After which, I had an in-person interview with the managers and the regional manager. Here, they asked more concrete questions about my experience, goals, etc. They had me sit down and listen in on some calls, and had me practice calling with the managers on the other line.

    Marketing Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online for a marketing position at CareerBuilder. After 30 days of not receiving a reply from CB, I was suddenly called by a recruiter for the position. During the phone interview the recruiter was very professional, helpful and forthcoming. She then scheduled a phone interview w/the hiring manager. That call happened the following week. The call w/the hiring manager was equally professional and thoroughly enjoyable as he described what they were looking for, where they were going and why they had selected me to interview. This call was followed up with a in-person interview in CareerBuilder's offices in downtown Chicago. This was a 1:1 with the hiring manager and lasted more than 90 minutes. In the end, I did not make the final selection or receive an offer but I came away impressed with CB's professionalism in the hiring process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Atlanta, GA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    3 rounds of interviews. One phone screen with a recruiter, one phone screen with my future manager and an in-person interview with three managers. I was suppose to create a presentation about two of their products but was never asked about it. They really want to see how you are over the phone since most of your job is talking to people on the phone.

    Major Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Pretty difficult interview. Manager is very polished, extremely sharp and certainly on the fast track to corporate leadership. Manager made interview a friendly environment and asked fair but difficult questions that in my mind I felt prepared for but in reality I was way off base. They have discovered the process that makes their reps successful and simply want to know that you are able to identify that process and implement it into your sales process should you join the team. Overall it was a positive experience. Be ready for deep conversation.
