    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Dallas, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for Major AE and found out that is the "low" tier sales job at CB. Hiring manager for Major role sent me to National AE hiring manager due to my sales experience and prior earnings. Had 1 phone interview and 1 face to face with him which went very well. I submitted my "homework" of a 30/60/90 day plan and he never responded. Not from multiple, professional, timely (once every 7-8 days) touch points (calls and emails). He answered my call once, and said that he was in the middle of an interview (what dope answers his phone during an interview?) and would call me back but never did. I had a very unprofessional experience. If their sales team is managed like their interview process, in such a haphazard way, I would recommend people run, don't walk away from sales roles at CareerBuilder.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (San Francisco, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn and was immediately called by a recruiter. The recruiter was extremely nice and helpful and really sold me on taking the interview which was actually set up for the next day after my initial conversation. I got to my interview about 15 minutes early and was told "Wow, you are already here!" which I do not think I have ever heard before. The hiring manager came out a few minutes after the original start time of the interview and was all over the place. He mentioned that he has been busy and did not have a chance to look at my resume or prepare for the interview. I then pulled out my questions I had prepared along with the background on the company and was told " Is all that about CareerBuilder? He seemed to be shocked I did some research. He then told me that the interview was only going to be a half hour since he was so busy and just wanted to get an idea of who I am etc. The whole process was very surprisingly bad since I had read so many good things on different sites etc. I would not recommend this company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CareerBuilder (Houston, TX) in September 2008.

    Interview

    I saw a position posted on their site and had to track down a friend of a friend to gain a first interview. The process was rather drawn out due to number of candidates and lack of time on the part of the hiring manager. The specific job duty details were not as clear as they could have been.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CareerBuilder in July 2010.

    Interview

    Company seems very professional. Very sales driven. Good money to be made in sales. Company believes in promoting from within. Seems very focused on taking care of it's own. Great benefits. Lots of travel required for sales jobs. Had 5 interviews. 3 over phone and 2 in person. Advice for sales person interviewing with them is to stress your activity in prospecting. There is a lot of this required for their sales jobs.
