    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CareerBuilder.

    Interview

    Its a shame that an organization that is dedicated to the recruitment experience/process and an organization that writes articles about interviews is not even able to follow best practices. I went through a few different phone interviews and came in two different times for in person interviews. When all said and done, I received a simple standard written email stating that I did not get the job. It would be nice if employers would phone any candidate who took time out of their day to come in for an in person interview to give them the news. Its all about the candidate experience even if I did not receive a job offer.

    Software Development Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Norcross, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was my first interview so I was probably more nervous than I should have been. I interviewed at the Norcross campus. We spoke about my experiences then had a whiteboard problem. They seemed like they did not value my college compared to places like GA Tech/ UGA. I did not do as well as I would have liked to on the whiteboard because I am new to the JavaScript language and not comfortable writing in it yet. While I was at the whiteboard the two men were checking their phones and not paying attention. My biggest mistake was looking around the office while listening to them talk about the job. I'm sure they took this as rude, and I did apologize.
