    Billing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Just was agreeable during the interview and they liked me; they didnt really ask any questions of value; the entire process was very easy and brief and I left knowing that I would be offered the job.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at CareerBuilder.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by in-person interview. For a company that specializes in hiring, I'd say the process I was disgraceful. Zero communication between recruiter and sales manager and myself. Very informal. Seems like there are hundreds of better places to work. No one seemed happy while I was there

    Software Sales Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was a referral from a current employee as I think a lot of the hires are at CareerBuilder. Interview process was pretty straight forward and quick-nothing out of left field and the recruiter was straight forward and transparent. Overall really good process.
    Phones screening, phone interview with managers and in person interview

    Major Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Then 2, 30 minute interviews. Not worth the drive downtown and not worth the time spent. Terrible communication between the recruiter and in person interviewees. Almost no knowledge share of any kind. Below average role for a young graduate, far below average for a seasoned veteran. Most of these folks are in or from Virginia and the nepotism seems to form visible dark clouds that fill their office space. Company losing BIG to LinkediN.

    Interview Questions

    • Very bland, general boilerplate questions. Both interviewees seemed to know far less about the software solutions industry than I found acceptable based on their positions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    fast, they were selling themselves the whole time, i didn't connect on the phone screen because they were rattling off skills questions, but in person was much nicer. i don't have a lot of interview experience so maybe this was normal

    Unified Communications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The standard phone screening to see if you have the knowledge that they are looking for followed by a face to face interview at the Norcross office. The second interview was straight forward and not difficult if you know what's required of the position. Very casual company. Everyone was dressed comfortable and seemed related.

    Solution Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Told to prepare presentation materials and be ready to present to have the interview team ask me questions about my resume only and provide feedback on obvious elements of my background. Waste of time on the actual interview. The initial recruiter was great with describing the position and next steps, but the actual manager was a let down.

    SQL Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CareerBuilder.

    Interview

    I had 2 interviews. One with a manager, and one with the team. It was a very intense interview in the beginning but once we got through the skills, it was a very informal interview from that point. They were nice and you could tell they know their job. You get the family business feel because everyone seems so invested in the success of the company
