    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Information Builders (El Segundo, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had several phone interviews and several face to face interviews. One of the face to face interviews was a group interview where I had to give a three part presentation.

    I received and accepted a verbal job offer, but the job was cut in year end budget discussions. so I never received the written offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Information Builders (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Pretty standard. Spoke to four employees within the department I was applying for. We discussed what was written on my resume and past experiences. They were definitely looking for a personality fit and someone hungry and ready to work towards the company's goals. There were no questions set out to deliberately throw you off.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Information Builders (Schaumburg, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screened with recruiter. Second phone screen with Director Field Marketing Support Services for about 30 mins. Face to face interview with the same person who was 15 mins late to the interview. The interview started and I was grilled before asked any basic questions on terms to study before the interview. I was asked to move to the next round for an interview in two weeks to present a very high level, introductory presentation about Information Builders. Second part was to create a prospecting letter and fill out a questionnaire. I was invited to move forward to this stage, but declined.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Information Builders (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Had a series of interviews and seemed to be real interest in discussing opportunity and salary. We both had invested a lot of time in the process and they went dark. No follow-up or closure after repeated attempts to contact. Bush league. Consistent with reviews from individuals who worked there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Information Builders (New York, NY).

    Interview

    You will be reached by HR who will set up a time and date with a meeting with the project manager. Depending on the job, they will ask you some technical questions but none that are too hard. This was for an intern role so I suppose they wanted someone with at least 20 hours availability during the week.
