    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Osborn & Barr.

    Interview

    Interacted with them at a career fair. Had a fairly informal interview with them afterwards, both recruiters were in the interview. It was all super friendly. Did not hear back from them afterwards, however, even after e-mailing and asking for more information. Thought this was unprofessional. Otherwise had a good experience with the company, might speak more with them after graduation!

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Osborn & Barr (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    Very relaxed interview process but extremely long process. Spent almost the entire day interviewing with potential team members. Everyone was very friendly and seemed to be very interested in me and my previous experiences. I had my interview in one of the glass walled conference rooms that seemed a little intimidating to have an interview in, since everyone could potentially watch or hear me.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Osborn & Barr (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Confusing. I came in for one role and was interviewed for another. Probably typical of place with high turnover, though. It took some time to get feedback from the interview, but I learned after that the role I was offered was actually vacated the day before I interviewed and so a budget was opened for that role, which meant my interview was actually for 2 roles.

    Interview Questions

    • Give us an example of a time that you lived out one of our core values or mission statement in your professional life?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no room for negotiation. When they offered me the role, which was far below my value at the time, they made me aware that it was the absolute most they could offer me, but I could look forward to a significant bonus in 6 months for the holidays, which I did receive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Osborn & Barr.

    Interview

    Applied through their website and was e-mailed by Jessica Sisco with their HR department to schedule a phone interview. On the day of our interview, we spoke for about 15 minutes about the job and my experience. She seemed excited and said she would pass my information along to one of their directors in the Kansas City office, but a week later, she sent another e-mail saying they would pursue other candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Osborn & Barr in March 2013.

    Interview

    It began with a phone interview and then I went to the office for an in-person interview. The interview began with dinner one night with two senior level employees and then continued the next day with meeting eight different people throughout a six hour span of time. I did not hear anything back from OB for more than six weeks before I got the call with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Mainly we discussed my past experiences, my work style and how I handle different scenarios. When interviewing with 10 people in two days, the questions became redundant, but every conversation was slightly different and touched on different topics.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Were not willing to negotiate salary.
