    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Information Builders (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. He secluded face-to-face interview. I talked with HR representative about my background, expectations, company product and working environment. Interview was held in very professional manner, it took about 30-40 minutes. My next interview took much longer; it was a technical interview with hiring manager and team members, and then I was invited to VP office for final round of interview. Two days later I got an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Information Builders (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Approximately 4-6 one on one interviews. Most of which took place at their HQ in NYC. They offered to reimburse my travel expenses but never followed through with that which I felt was pretty low-class, especially since they were the ones to offer during the interview process. It was several hundred dollars traveling from PHL to NYC multiple times and they are currently blowing off my follow up to get reimbursed. Proceed with caution here.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions were about my relevant experience. I was asked to pitch on the spot once or twice. Nothing out of the ordinary for a sales position interview.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Slow people processes from the 80's style. The internal office space is old and out dated. Cheep furnishing tells a lot about their cheep pay policy!
